La Bague de Kenza is a pâtisserie that specializes in Algerian desserts. The locals fondly refer to the pâtisserie as B.K. and it's almost become chic to takeover a box of Kenza sweets along with wine when friends invite you over. Expect plenty of almonds, pistachios, dates and figs accompanied by generous amounts of honey, whether it's the dziriate or the less sweet ghribia. The desserts are a perfect end to a good meal, or as an amuse-bouche with tea. La Bague de Kenza is so popular, many of the North African restaurants in Paris get their dessert carts stocked from this pâtisserie. You can also find La Bague de Kenza at 173 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine (also the 11th) and at 233 Rue de la Convention (15th).
