Taokan – Paris – France Visit Review: 11,8

Restaurant that we know immediately that a good part of the bill is made to pay more the decor than the plate. Not that it is bad but it is at the level of the claim.   The starters are of course more worked than at your Chinese caterer around the  street corner. You will not find this side slightly elastic for vapors and stickier than crisp for fried spring [...]

Teppanyaki Ginza Onodera – Paris – France Visit Review: 14,8

A Japanese restaurant (a real one!) is nothing like any other type of restaurant. It is a whole state of mind that is revealed furtively from the facade, the door crossed, the curtain before dining room, the courteous but distant reception, a decor with simple design but where a thousand discrete elements reveal the complexity of arrangement. Do not leave now! Don't worry, I'll avoid [...]

Korean Barbecue – Paris – France Visit Review: 12

By the way.

Between the indigestible pancakes and junk Japanese that surround Montparnasse station, why not a Korean barbecue? This one is far from being the worst of Paris. One can even say that the portions, the taste and the choice are suitable. And especially a very good air exhaust!Korean Barbecue Delambre Viande Barbecue Fundamental not to make the happiness of [...]

Kodawari Ramen – Paris – France Visit Review: 11.2

For the setting

This place was recently opened. It's funny with his copy of Japanese street. So we eat at the bar or on small coffee tables to share. And then all the staff say "Hello" and "Goodbye" (Japanese) in chorus at the entrance and exit of each customer. Probably a Japanese tradition. Let's go to the important, the ramen soup. I took the roast pig. The broth is tasty although a little salty. [...]

A.T.(i) – Paris – France Visit Review: 13.4

Like a hen in front of an egg

To be honest, I hate this kind of restaurant in which I feel as silly as a hen in front of an egg. Minimalist portions, exorbitant prices, great culinary pretension ... And yet, nothing to complain about since it's good. And I love everything about Japan, the delicacy that some people know how to express without saying it.So let's go: overall, a great job but sometimes so much [...]

Sakagura – New-York – USA Visit Review: 17

Crazy Saké cellar

Restaurant located in a cellar of a New-York building, it is indicated from the street only by a simple and small light panel. The decoration is classic and banal Japanese (but not kitsch plastic). In bulk, I tasted a cold egg in a cold broth with sea urchin coral (Onsen Tamago). A simple appetizer but probably the finest and succulent dish of the evening.Some banal [...]

Bonjour Viet-Nam – Paris – France Visit Review: 10


The place is small but with a nice summer terrace. The 6 steamed ravioles are excellent, very fine taste, fresh product. On the other hand, the pot of pork and shrimp is disappointing, hence my average rating. Hard meat, small portion, good balance of the sauce between sugar and salt. But compared to the entrance, you are still hungry. Very friendly service. Plus two Saigon beers, [...]

Sobane – Paris – France Visit Review: 12.8


Starters original and very delicate even if a little overdosed in vinegar. There are 5 in the star menu, which are in "discovery" format, small but many. Dishes (grilled duck or grilled beef) quite disappointing compared to the originality of the starters. The rice-noodle-potato mixture is not very harmonious in terms of vegetables. Excellent dessert, Tiramisu with green tea. A [...]

Toritcho – Paris – France Visit Review: 13


Dining room a little bit old but waiters carefull. In two dinners, I have always been honestly received at the bar or in the dining room.The cooking is really Japanese, not the adaptation for tourists. This is not great food but a quite decent step in the neighborhood of Montparnasse where we see often the worst and rarelly the [...]
