After Kodawari Yokocho, the improbable ramen-ya that recreated a Tokyo alley in the center of Paris, Jean-Baptiste Meusnier has opened a new immersive spot for aquatic noodles! While Kodawari Tsukiji’s fish market décor is worthy of a visit all on its own (stalls to sit around, servers wearing white boots and waxed aprons), the umami-esque menu also deserves to be explored! On the agenda: a lovely sea bream carpaccio with smoked white miso; fabulous “sardine bomb” ramen for lovers of the blue fish; a runny tamago egg, marinated sea bream and yuzu; perfect paitan ramenmade with monkfish and gilt-head bream in a delicious thick broth; before some excellent desserts, like the praline and buckwheat taiyaki waffle from Tomo, or the lime rice pudding with caramelized scallop (!). // E.D.B.
FEELING THIRSTY? There’s Kirin beer on tap (€4), non-pasteurized Kameizumi sake (€9), or a very surprising Japanese umeshu sangria (€5 a glass).
PRICE: Appetizers from €2.50 to €9, ramen €12-19, desserts €6-7.
