Urfa Durum, Paris

Urfa Durum makes “from scratch” kurdish kabobs (plus), House made bread, seasoned meats, and maybe the best “hand done” frites in Paris.

I chose the lamb pita which brought two good-sized strips of grilled ground marinated lamb in their super bread with lettuce, tomato, onion, harisse and yogurt sauces.

The Montparnasse location is very convenient for picking up pre or on-train food. It is actually located at the southwest corner/end of rue de Rennes.

Highly recommend for hands-on, fresh, well seasoned and generous cooking.

Is this place related to to the similarly named Genç Urfa Dürüm on the same street, which had to close recently?

Not that I know of, but I really don’t know.

I guess I found the answer. I had a vague memory of Clothilde of Chocolate and Zucchini mentioning the place. So I found this in her April 2013 mailing, which implies that the two had nothing to do with each other:

and Maxence’s favorite Kurdish sandwich place on rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis, Genç urfa dürüm, whose lahmajoun (pictured at right) we like better than that of the much more famous Urfa Dürüm across the street

Did I mention that we had the best frites here than I can remember anywhere? Probably 500 pounds of potatoes stacked near the kitchen suggested totally house made product.
