Le Lys d’Or (i)- Paris – France
The lily always in bloom
From how many years of existence can a restaurant be considered as an institution? After 30 years, Le Lys d’Or could easily claim this distinction.
And without resting on its laurels. Indeed, without abandoning its gastronomic quality, Ms. Chen has transformed, with the effective collaboration of Manuel Mariani, her menu to focus on two culinary poles: the hotplate and the traditional cast iron casserole.
Between quick and slow cooking, the dishes alternate traditional recipes and original creations. Thus the 7 treasures of the lotus flower mix scallops, melting shrimps, crunchy vegetables and cashew nuts.
Classic frying pan will give you a general overview of sesame shrimp, spring rolls or fish fritters.
The equally traditional assortment of vapors will complement the appetizers with delicacy.
But let’s go in the heart of the subject with especially a great use of scallops, fragile product that must never exceed the prescribed cooking, at the risk of to end as a tire! And here, whether with vegetables or rice, nothing to complain about, the pieces are melting, with this unparalleled delicate taste.
Here is the duck that will be tested in hotplate. Classical and with pleasure again.
Far from the Chinese canteens of the 80s, having managed the turn of modernity without losing its soul, Le Lys d’Or retains a decor “ancient way” and authentic cooking.
Since the date is approaching, Le Lys d’Or offers a special menu for Mother’s Day at 29 euros, cocktail and gift offered for them, a good opportunity to discover (or rediscover) the place with the family.
