Mouffetard Saigon – Paris – France Visit Review: 13,6

Rue Mouffetard is always a neighborhood where the choice of the restaurant turns out to be a flip-flop, between the tourist traps and the extremely rare establishment that stands out.

True to my reputation as a fighter of the impossible, I took my courage with both hands to find a small address at affordable prices.



As fortune favors the brave, I was not disappointed with Mouffetard Saigon, a small Vietnamese canteen on the Place de la Conterscarpe.

Menu strictly unreadable because in the local idiom. Fortunately, the French-English translation provides a suitable solution.



I did not take any risk with shrimp donuts as starters. A bit spicy and fat. All that I love.

For the dish, I was attracted by the Banh Chu’ng (but called Com Goi La Sen on the menu!), The Vietnamese version of chinese Lo Mai Kai: that is to say glutinous rice containing elements from shrimp to chicken, sometimes pork sausages, etc. It depends on the chef! The whole thing is wrapped in a lotus leaf and steamed.

It was succulent, much more flavored than the Chinese versions I could taste, more herbs and spices.

I unfortunately did not have time to take a dessert.

Addition according to the district at 26 euros for 1 person with a beer.
