Although France is pretty far away from this part of the world, Parisians are lucky to have this diversity of exotic food coming from Vietnam, Japan, Korea and of course China. We know that there are so many different styles of cuisine coming from each of these countries but we tried to select our favorite places for price and quality rather than for originality.
Just in case you are staying in Paris long enough to get tired of our cheeses and bread, here is a list of our favorite asian eateries:
- Pho 14, 129 avenue de Choisy, 75013
If you like Vietnamese noodle soups, bo buns and spring rolls, these guys are probably the most efficient for table service and food quality. Definitely a locals spot.
- Sushi-B Paris, 5 rue Rameau, 75002
Parisians love sushi so much, you can find sushi places at every corner but they are prepare by Chinese families who should just serve their own regional food rather than these bad sushis.
Sushi B is different, and offers the real sushi experience, just like in Tokyo. If you are in the area, walk around Opera Garnier and rue de St Anne for more Ramen and Gyoza experiences.
- Shan Gout, 22 rue Hector Malot, 75012
Chinese gastronomie, cooked by the owner himself. He uses organic products, no glutamate and serves his cuisine like a real chef. Try the peanut sauce noodle and the duck, also the shrimps are wonderful.
- Bon Ga, 6 rue Montgallet, 75012
Korean Barbecues and bimbimap place, good for families and big groups but make a booking through La Fourchette website, you might even get a 30% discount!
If you are looking for cheap street food, go to Belleville metro station and get a banh mi sandwich on Louis Bonnet or walk up Belleville Street and get a Bao, a Chinese meat or veggie bun from one of the eatery on the right side of the street. Best dumpling place is Guo Xin, and of course Lao Siam for a mix of Asian food, surrounded by hipsters drinking natural wine.
