Who says you can’t take a trip to Korea while you’re in Paris?
289 Rue St Denis
For those looking to break away from classic Parisian bistro food when in the City of Light, a fun Korean eatery located in the 2nd arrondissement is sure to deliver. The three-storey canteen and bar flaunts a psychedelic interior with graffiti, concrete, potted plants, neon hearts, and Chinese lanterns all taking centre stage. The menu revolves around artfully prepared Korean street food, their prized dish being the yangnyeom — crispy fried chicken covered in a sweet, sour and spicy garlic sauce. Designed for sharing, unique and utterly delicious dishes such as kimchi, served plain or in mac ‘n’ cheese, jellyfish and green apple salad, buns filled with pork ribs and pickled cabbage served with homemade mayo, are sure to set your taste buds alight, almost making you forget you’re on the European continent.
