Best Northern-Chinese Cuisine in town

Instead of doing maps with the top ten of the best restaurants I write from now on about particular restaurants and add them to the exciting maps.

Last weekend we discovered a new Chinese restaurant in the 12ème. The place is brand-new, no decorations, just clean white walls and an open kitchen. The lady-boss is a very nice person. They are from the North, close to Beijing and offer a homemade, fresh North-Chinese cuisine. The raviolis are homemade- nothing to do with this frozen big pack raviolis you usually get served. For my friend the vegetable raviolis were a bit too close to real Chinese taste, not westernised at all. It was delicious ! lol I had homemade noodles with ZhiaJiang Sauce… so yummy. For me, as I used to live in Beijing several years, this was like time traveling. Just getting through this door I felt like stepping back in time and into Beijing. I was so happy! Don´t expect a huge menu, it´s a fine selection of a few raviolis, salads and noodles with sauce or in a soup. But it´s typical Northern style and it´s fresh and homemade! And just so good!!!! I am happy to announce that we finally have a Chinese restaurant in our neighbourhood!

For 2 abt 24 Euro (soups, raviolis, 2 mains) Kid-Friendly

Adresse: Lychee 51 Rue General Michel Bizot, 75012 Paris /  Metro Michel Bizot , Bus 87, 46

The Chinese Wishing-Table

Chinese food is somehow my comfort food. When I think of cold winter days I long for hot pot. And pretty often I long for Di San Xian – the 3 treasures of the Earth, my favourite dish back “home” in Beijing. Soup with Jiaozi (ravioli) is one of the first things I have in mind when I think of Shanghai, this hot, fantastic, humid, earthy to mustiness smelling place with a purple sky. I still haven´t found any place that is serving Di San Xian in Europe thus I make it myself. But I have found a few decent places that serve decent Chinese food. And I even found my beloved century eggs/ 皮蛋 (black preserved eggs). Thanks to a huge Chinese Community in Paris you can find not everything but almost everything here!

Chez Xu / Metro Art et Métiers  (2016)

Great surprise in old China town of Paris. Squeeze in on own of the tables and have some real chinese food! abt 10€ per person

Mum Dim Sum / Metro Palais Royal/ Les Halles

cantonese take away, a bit expensive for what it is… but dim sum tends to be expensive in Europe. At least good quality,  funky dim sum of the month and a nice setting. 10-15€ without drinks.

Deux fois plus piment /Metro Richard-Lenoir

Hmm, so spicy! The Sichuan ravioli are just delicious. Young Asian crowd who loves spicy food is usually hanging out here mixed with some first dates and people from the neighborhood. I have been coming back to this place several times. It´s really good even though you should´t be in a hurry. Service is slow and it´s always packed thus consider making a reservation or come early. 15-20€ p.p. Lunch set menu during the week from 6-9€ ( They have opened a 2nd shop in the Marais called Trois fois plus piment)

Ravioli Chinoise Nord-Est /  Metro Belleville

Just feeling like back home in Beijing. Due to recommendations in the Lonely Planet filled with English speakers but still the best ravioli in town in a little shop filled with neon light. The owners are very nice. Don´t miss out on the medusa salad! 5-10€ p.p.

Nanchang /  Metro Charonne

Chinese BBQ and Nanchang clay pot soup in a retro place- think Mao posters and culture revolution decoration including plats and mugs. Young Chinese student crowd. Only opens for dinner. 10-20€ p.p.

Un grand Bol / Metro Belleville

Real Chinese food , very tasty and another gem in the sadly mediocre Chinese restaurant scene of Belleville. 15-20€ p.p

Le Celeste Gourmand  / Metro Hotel de Ville

Serves black eggs, also called Century eggs or 皮蛋! Yummy! Also got good marmite pots. Good pricing, especially for the area. 20€ + p.p

Au Poivre du Szechuan / Metro Belleville

Again spicy! And lot´s of cumin. But that´s what the heart wants when looking for Szechuan food. The lamb dish is very good. Approx. 15 €
