She conquered Albion, and then crossed the English Channel! Linda Lee, the queen of K-food in London, brought her famous On the Bab (“on rice” in Korean) to Rue Sainte-Anne in Paris. Expect lots of concrete, metal and industrial touches for the decor, typically Korean lunch boxes (dosirak) and K-pop coming from the speakers… We ticked off all of the following boxes on the small paper order form the other day at lunch: delicious bab twigim, aka fried rice balls with kimchi and cheese, served with an incredible chili sauce for dipping; mouthwatering fried chicken with garlicky mayo or ginger soy sauce; plump buns stuffed with Korean BBQ style bulgogi beef. There was nothing but a rather lackluster mochi ice cream for dessert, though… // Albert Gredinbar

FEELING THIRSTY? Imported beers (Kirin lager at €5, Kloud amber ale at €6), Korean blackberry or plum wine (€5 a glass) and soju cocktails, like the Soju Breeze made with cranberry juice, grapefruit and lime (€10).
PRICE: Set menu €15 (lunch except on Saturdays), à la carte €22-32.
