Adidas x Le Guide Fooding’s Best Street Food Award 2016

The sparkling Yoosun continues to open up her incredible trans-Asian street food addresses across Paris. After Ma Kitchen, a tiny temple to Korean bibimbap, she opened up this colorful café in 2015 (school tables, floral wallpaper), where bao buns (the famous Chinese-Vietnamese steamed brioche, made here with incredible fillings and sauces) won her a Fooding award in 2016. Your choice of multiple versions: slow-cooked pork belly with fried shallots, a red bean sauce and chili paste; fried chicken in a ginger-spiced breading and a Korean BBQ marinade; or line-caught hake in a mango-shrimp dressing. At lunch, there’s a nice €14 set menu, with two bao buns and sweet potato fries or salad. At night, the menu includes even more bibimbaps and crazy tapas (rice and spicy cabbage croquettes, pork marinated in sesame oil…). And for dessert: a flavorful yuzu cake (€4). And in the glasses? Korean beer (Hite) or plum wine for €5. À la carte €21-33. // R.deC.
