10. Kraft Hot Dogs
For those of you homesick for your taste of ‘Murica, this Top Ten Paris hot dog stand will remind you of everything you love about your freedom. Slap that freedom cheese on your freedom dog and nestle it in your freedom bun, doused with freedom fried onions and pastrami. It’s okay to be confused that your all-time favorite hot dog was just made in France (at least it’s not China right?!), but consider it our thank you for the Statue of Liberty. Open daily 12 PM - midnight.

Of course it’s strange to venture halfway across the world for superior tacos and tequila, but you’ll be glad you did.
