Restaurant Ahipoké in ParisAhipoké (Paris) - © Christine Doublet

It’s time to put on your tropical shirts, as Hawaiian poke has finally arrived in Paris! After blowing everything up with her first two Asiatomic restaurants, Ma Kitchen (famous for its bibimbaps) and SAaM (famous for its bao buns), Yoonsun Kim is trying her hand at these delicious raw fish bowls. Where? In a twenty-square-meter space equipped with three chairs, wicker light fixtures and suspended plants, run by staff dressed in striped shirts who work on a tight shift. To start, there are some exquisite peanut and chili oil dumplings ; followed by an epic pork ramen, or the inimitable sushi-rice bowls (with quinoa or shiitake mushrooms and carrots) topped with extremely fresh fish (tuna, salmon, a mix of the two…) bathed in insane marinades (soy-yuzu, chili-sesame or soy-wasabi) and served with plenty of vegetables: edamame, seaweed, kale, hijiki, radishes, pickled onions…. A luxurious little spot where you can indulge your sweet tooth afterwards with a green tea tiramisu, a yuzu panna cotta or a delicious smoothie (orange-kiwi-jasmine tea, €3.50). Appetizers €3.50, ramen €6.80, bowls €9.80 to €12.90, desserts €3.50, set menu options €9.80 to €15.80. // Goulven Le Pollès
