Les trois bonheurs – Paris – France Visit Review: 10,8

Return to the future

This is an article for old people. If you are under 30 and you consider Netflix as the Paramount of the 21st century, you will be dumped. Some Chinese restaurants are like "Return to the Future". You can remember some of the dishes that were tasted during the 1980s, in some of the factory-crafted establishments in Shenzen when it was just a small village in SEZ, while on your Walkman [...]

Pizza di Gio – Paris -France Visit Review: 11,8

Several elements distinguish a good pizza from a bad one. The first, and fundamental, is the preparation of the dough. It must rest at least for 24 hours after a rigorous preparation. We can say that a priori Pizza di Gio respects this first step since the pizza was really crunchy, well cooked, with this smell and taste that you could eat unaccompanied.  The margherita is [...]

La Truffière (i) – Paris – France Visit Review: 16

Sublimation of the vegetable

There are houses whose constancy and perseverance in adversity must be commended. La Truffière had suffered a fire in 2002, which forced it to abandon its elegant fireplace (when you are kept by safety standards). It had waited years for a Michelin star, which has been significantly faster for other establishments. At the departure of Jean-Christophe Rizet, the same guide removed this [...]

Juste – Paris – France Visit Review: 10,6


Calimero because I was not going to make a basic pun about the name of the restaurant. But I think after reading my article, the owners will say: it's an injustice!It is ranked high on Trip Advisor, though, as usual, some rate a fast food establishment as a real restaurant. The concept is funny : you select your dishes on a stall of fishmonger. The food is precooked and packaged in [...]

Le repaire des Ours – Le Fayet – France Visit Review: 8,8

An Ogre in bear lair

When you have a change of ownership, at some point, it's still a mess. In this case, the FaceBook Page is still held by the former manager, the website is in the road. And everyone complains that it's not the same anymore. Indeed, the lady who receives you is really far from being kind. She is lucky to have an elderly but super-nice waitress to round the corners with the guests.You [...]

Le 5e Cru – Paris – France Visit Review: 12

Small friendly cafeteria of the 5th arrondissement whose main activity is selling wines. Some tables and a simple menu to eat.An honest rabbit terrine even if a little compact.  A duck breast of very good taste but served rare while requested rosé. Eggplant donuts with a little bit chaotic form.  Classic Tatin tart. Puff pastry a little elastic. [...]

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 [...]

Crabe Royal – Paris – France Visit Review: 11,6

Then I say Bravo !

Then I say Bravo, not so much for the quality of food but especially for a perfectly orchestrated marketing concept.First, you place "Royal" in your name, it immediately pretty rocks! You are settling place Madeleine, you can only be good fellowships. You take a filthy animal (the Kamchatka crab) which is an ecological disaster but with fine flesh and you sell it as the best crab in [...]

La Fine Gueule – Paris – France Visit Review: 10,4

Is sympathy enough ?

This is the question that arises out of this wine cellar that offers some dishes, more in table d'hôte format than real restaurant. We know that we do not come here to enjoy exceptional dishes.The welcome is warm, friendly, we want to be drift.But a vegetable soup is simple, not complicated. And often good. But do not forget simple things like rinsing the leeks (cut the head [...]

H Kitchen – Paris – France Visit Review: 11,4

Not for the setting !

The least we can say is that you don't come here for the setting. Japanese people have generally accustomed us to much better. It's not that it's ugly, it's not that it's extravagant, but there is nothing! It is no longer Japanese sobriety, it is as warm as a Siberian storm swooping on Hokkaido an evening of November. Tables, chairs, a touch of paint to renovate, white and brown, not [...]
