Taka et Vermo

Love, glory and cheese! Taka & Vermo was the final destination for couple Laure Takahashi and Mathieu Vermorel, who, after crisscrossing France and Europe for months hoping to strike gold, opened up their luminous cheese shop on Faubourg Saint-Denis. The result? Two hundred types of cheese with a focus on small farms and traditional methods that are respectful of the animals’ well-being. In addition to their original creations, the couple lovingly care for a selection of gems hidden in the cellar of their tiny shop with a tiled sign, a protruding countertop and a long shelving unit along the wall. Don’t miss their lovely Saint-Marcellin with pine shoots (€4.90 each), or the Gruyère flavored with woodruff (€38.50/kg). // E.P.

Hidden gem: The organic Saint-Clément, a goat cheese that’ll have you bleating with delight (€6.90 each).
