Asian Food Fix in Paris

When traveling with Mike, he will ALWAYS need his Asian food fix.

"What should we eat?"

"Do you want to eat French food or Asian?"
"I want my Pho."

Our first meal in Paris was Asian food as well that Mike insisted on having.

The hotel we stayed at was located along Rue St Anne and there are a whole load of Asian restaurants, mostly Japanese restaurants in the area.

And fortunately OR unfortunately, there was a 'Vietnamese' restaurant (run by Chinese) located right opposite our hotel.

Phnom Penh Saigon located along 41 Rue St Anne.

Food was OK.

We also had ramen in Paris at Sapporo Ramen Restaurant, located a minute away from our hotel as well -_-

Let's just say that I'd rather have a Maggi mee with an egg over the ramen here.

The broth here is a big disappointment - especially if your taste buds are accustomed to eating at ramen restaurants such as Ippudo, Yamagoya, Menya Mushahi, etc (authentic Japanese ramen) where the stock is thick and flavourful and the noodles, springy.

However, the Vietnamese food that we had at Pho Banh Cuon 14 @ 129 Avenue de Choisy was pretty good.

Yummy spring rolls

Beef noodles

Just look at the happy Asian man.
