Chinese-French chef Sophie Ya has set up shop (a pine green tiled bar, vintage furniture, an open kitchen) in a former Thai bistro sandwiched between two glitzy avenues in the 16th arrondissement. And she makes sure to keep her lunchtime clientele happy, serving pad thai to the regulars. Meanwhile at night, Cantonese cuisine takes over with some truly mouthwatering dishes! Just take the other night as an example: incredible cheung fun (rice noodle rolls) stuffed with shrimp, which were surprisingly crispy in their soft envelope; Normandy scallops and translucent glass noodles cleverly dressed in a garlic and chili sauce; a mini cooking pot filled with rice and tender pork; before the classic (but delicious) coconut-mango tapioca pearls for dessert. // Jean Pascal
