Today it’s all about wontons! This Chinese dumpling-obsessed Belleville spot has duplicated its normcore décor and standardized tables on the interminable rue Saint Denis, between vintage clothing stores and sex shops. Skip past the soups and salads on the menu and place your bets on the mouthwatering wontons: satisfying beef and turnip or juicy beef and celery; tofu, black mushrooms and green cabbage for the vegetarians; and our favorites, filled with pork, chive and shrimp. All for next to nothing – €7 for 10. // C.C.
FEELING THIRSTY? There’s plenty to drink from the homeland: Pu’er tea (€3.50) or royal jasmine tea (€4.50), plus classic Tsingtao beer (€3 for 330 ml).
PRICE: Set menus €9 (salad + 10 wontons) and €12 (salad + 16 wontons or wonton soup).
