An Di An Di
Going by the name of “go on, eat” (“an di an di” in Vietnamese), three friends with various backgrounds, Adeline Gobin (ex-Jules Verne), Nhat Pham (ex-Foyer Vietnam) and Viet Nguyen decided to fuse their influences at a nice spot with pale green walls and light wooden furniture. And you definitely “go on, eat” really well here. The night we went, straight out of the open kitchen: incredible satay popcorn; delightful pho-spiced beef terrine; delicious crispy orange-basil duck with caramelized white radish and bok choy; then a nice dessert composed of a sablé breton cookie, passion fruit cream, meringue and a ginger crumble topping. To drink, there are a few Asian fusion cocktails, like the Pink with prosecco, Soho, litchi, rose and basil seeds (€9), along with La Baleine beer brewed in the 20th arrondissement (€4.50), coconut water (€4) and a few natural wines: Le Loup dans La Bergerie from the Domaine de L’Hortus in the Languedoc (€5 a glass), Terre des Galets, a Rhône from Marcel Richaud (€32 a bottle) or an Alsace from Marcel Deiss (€37)… Set menu option €16-20 (lunch), à la carte €31-38 (dinner). // J.G.
