Peco Peco

Restaurant Peco Peco in ParisPeco Peco (Paris) - © Yves Nespoulous

Inside this small joint in Pigalle that’s made with next to nothing (wobbly tables, vintage chairs, exposed stone walls, a visible kitchen), chef Kenji Hoori (ex-Ze Kitchen Galerie) treats guests to cheeky Japanese dishes. At lunch, choose one of the three donburi rice bowls (€10) with two sides of your choice. For us, it was a vegetarian donburi with tofu, nitamago and seaweed tartare, served with a soba salad (cold noodles with beets and spinach) and three veggie gyoza (€16 for everything). Then we gobbled up a vanilla mochi ice cream (€4). At night, it’s all about tapas, with small plates of clams cooked in sake, seasoned with cilantro and scallions (€9), buta no kakuni – braised pork – that’ll make your taste buds sing with delight (€10), and a few delicious kushiage skewers – karaage chicken (€10), haddock (€8), etc. To drink, there’s a homemade juice that changes daily (€5), Belgian Delta IPA (€6 for 330 ml), Shirataki or Urakasumi sakes (€6 a glass), a white Touraine from the Domaine François Cartier (€5.50 a glass) or a red from Luc Sébille in Chinon (€26 a bottle). Set menus €10-16 (lunch), à la carte €25-30.
