“Dwich yourself!” This could very well be the motto behind Doriane Dostert’s (ex-Thierry Marx) manga-esque coffee shop (concrete walls, white tiles, Japanese cat prints), where they layer insider treats between two fluffy slices of toasted homemade brioche sandwich bread. The day we went for lunch, we indulged in one of their incredible sandwiches: a torikatsu sliced in half, with lobes of chicken in a black sesame seed crust, carrot synapses, veins of red cabbage and an inimitable Bulldog sauce (€12). Otherwise, choose between five other options all at the same price, like the mouthwatering omelet version with spicy Sriracha or the braised beef version with hoisin sauce – with an optional miso soup or vinegary cucumber salad (+€2). For dessert, there’s opulent French toast made using the same bread as the sandwiches (€7). Wash it all down with homemade juice (carrot, orange, ginger, €5), Japanese Ramune lemonade (€4) or good java from La Brûlerie de Belleville (€2.50 to €4.50). Set menus €14 (weekday lunch). Brunch €26 (Saturday and Sunday). // A.A.
