Are you looking for delicious ice creams in Paris? Go and discover Bältis, the latest ice cream parlor set rue Saint-Antoine, within walking distance from the Place des Voges. Tasty, organic and indulging, here is how to treat you well.

Do you like ice creams and especially organic and original ice creams? And how about discovering Bältis? The latest ice cream parlors serving Lebanese flavors. In the heart of the Marais area between the Place des Vosges and Bastille, this latest indulging spot is likely to attract foodies looking for something cool.

Say goodbye to industrial ice creams with dubious ingredients. Here, you will enjoy an artisanal store-laboratory. All ingredients used are organic and thoroughly selected and homemade natural stabilizer was developed to make ice creams very creamy and smooth.

Behind the store, Jean-Michel de Tarrazi and Nadim Kettaneh, two cousins born in Lebanon, who wanted to serve Levantine ice creams and sorbets. Note all ice creams are made on site in the laboratory hidden behind the store.

As for the creation of recipes, the duo called in Jean-Thomas Schneider (Pastry World Champion 2017, Ice Cream World Champion 2018 and Ice Cream Meilleur Ouvrier de France 2019). It took months to the trio to come up to the perfect texture and unveil the Lebanese flavors mixed to the fineness of the French techniques.

Here, taste prevails and ice creams – low in sugar but rich in raw materials and especially fruits for sorbets (60% of fruits) – explode in the mouth.

What can you enjoy there, then? Among the flagship flavors, the staple atcha based on milk cream flavored with orange blossom and lenstic sap uplifted with orchid root to give it its unique texture. This is the store’s best-selling ice cream coated in pistachio, cotton candy and even in bird nest bites.

Among the other exotic flavors, there are pistachio, almond, rose water sorbet, orange blossom, and halawa – ice cream based on white sesame paste and pistachios, also known as halva.

And of course, do not miss the intense chocolate, vanilla – prevailing all flavors – and sorbets like the strawberry and apricot we loved.

The store also provides a few seats inside or on the outdoor terrace, but you can also walk all the way to the Place des Vosges or the Parc de l’Arsenal. Anyway, on site, you can discover a great selection of homemade traditional drinks. Go for the traditional Lebanese coffee infused with cardamom, the anis herbal tea and the famous white coffee (orange blossom infusion).

For more freshness, go for the homemade orange blossom lemonade or the rose or mulberry water in granita version when it is very hot. Note you can also enjoy a selection of traditional crafts cookies from Lebanon, imported in a sustainable fashion. From the Yensoun with anise to the pistachio Barazek with sesame, to the Ghraibe – aka a Lebanese shortbread – these treats marvelously pair your drinks.

So, shall we enjoy these scrumptious discoveries?
