Glatt Kosher and Kosher and not Kosher in Paris

First What is Glatt Kosher :

What is is defined as Glatt Kosher is “meat from animals with smooth or defect-free lungs. Today, the term is often used informally to imply that a product was processed under a stricter standard of kashrut, also referred to as the Jewish dietary laws.”

Here in Paris, you’ll find different restaurants serving kosher food.

But be careful ! As some of them tend to write that the food is kosher, when it actually IS NOT.

Here are the signs to look for, if you’re eating kosher (with the specificities)

Important Note : Some Restaurants in Rue des Rosiers, put the David Star on their storefront or a Mizouza in the boutiques, but this does not mean they are Kosher.
