Restaurant Siseng in ParisSiseng (Paris) - © Yves Nespoulous

Siseng is the darling of the Canal Saint-Martin neighborhood thanks to its burgers made on steamed bao buns. It has American-inspired décor (a brick bar, high tables, wooden suspension lamps), and we happily squeeze in for one of these tasty and moist buns. Amongst the various versions with lamb, tofu, etc., we give top marks to the one with the chicken marinated and breaded in the Japanese style, with coleslaw, a basil sauce and coconut milk, or the one with beef marinated in spices, with a caramelized tamarind sauce (€10). To go with it, try the sweet potato fries (€4), crispy vegetable tempura (€6), cheeky shrimp croquettes (€8), and a rather boring coconut milk flan for dessert (€4). To drink, there’s Brooklyn IPA on tap (€4.50 for a half-pint), lemonade with aloe vera, or ginger ale (€5 a glass), and well-made cocktails like the Monoke with white rum, St-Germain, sparkling sake, lemon juice and vanilla syrup. Set menu €15 (weekday lunch), dishes €10-12, à la carte €21-28. // M.A.-L.
