New bites & mezze 2016

 

Bar du Marché

We had a blast! Come here on a Sunday after the market and try to get a spot on the bar with the workers from the market finishing their day of with a glass of wine. Or get a table and try one of Chef Nathalie`s great dishes with fresh ingredients from the market. The makes 2 starters, 2 main and 2 dessert on the spot, we were very pleased. The bar was packed, people were great, everybody loved our baby thus she was entertained and we stayed more than 3h there chatting with everybody. Highly recommended! Perfect lunch for a Sunday and to get a feeling why the 11th is the best!

Le Comptoir Japonaise 

Organic, japanese , homemade food in an architects home. they produce as much as possible themselves on their own organic farm ( hence they are closed during harvest season) The food was sublime, you usually need a reservation on the weekend but she took as in an cooked spontaneously a risotto with clams for us. We had a nice chat, superb fresh and delicious food and left with a big smile! Abt 20-25€ each.

Kim & Kim 

My favourite Coreen in town. The lunch set menu is just great and cheap!  (10€ and 12€) The pancakes, medusa salad and the BBQ are sooo good! It´s a very simple place, I thinks it is the Dad and his son running the business and they are nice and once again the food is great! Not fancy but simply authentic!

Mama Bali

This spa serves a great indonesian lunch set menu for 14€. Very friendly place with a Zen atmosphere , fresh food, balinese style. (baby-friendly lunch) They also sell a combo of massage/ spa and detox lunch if you need to pamper yourself on a rainy day in Paris… and we all know there are many rainy days here.

Il Goto

New upscale Italian, bit cold deco but nice food in a food desert area. High quality ingredients cooked with a twist, you will find dished like pasta with goat meat and mint leaves or black polenta with scampi on the menu. No pizza or lasagna 😉

Mum Dim Sum 

Cantonese / Hipster styled 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.

The Italian Wishing-Table

Oh, Italian food… Italy, this place of nostalgia and estival dreams contributes the world with a truly delicious and diversified cuisine. Uncountable varieties of dishes with tomatoes and garlic haul out a yum of everybody´s mouth! I basically grew up with Italian food, till today my Mum makes a mouthwatering lasagna when we kids come home. That´s properly why Italian dishes make me feel homy. But I truly admire the variety of their cooking. Here in Paris my favourite places are Acquolina in Bocca where you should try the sardines with slow cooked onion rings and raisins. The pumpkin ricotta mushroom lasagna was also very remarkable. La Dispensa is my find of 2015. The menu changes all the time, they focus on umbrian cuisine. Both serve organic wines. Just this weekend I stumbled across a new place close to Place des Voges where I had the most delicious pizza with truffles and the best panna cotta with limoncello sauce ever in Paris. I will quickly add the place to the map.

Il Goto / Metro Dugommier

New upscale Italian, bit cold deco but nice food in a food desert area. High quality ingredients cooked with a twist, you will find dished like pasta with goat meat and mint leaves or black polenta with scampi on the menu. No pizza or lasagna 😉

Acquolina in Bocca ♥  Metro Saint-Ambroise

Delicious organic, homemade food, main courses under 15€! With terrace and boutique. Safe bet!      CLOSED!!!

La Dispensa ♥  Metro République 

Oh my god! This little joint is just awesome and in the run to become my favourite place of the year 2015. Food is delicious, made with love, wines are organic, decor is great, prices are fair and the service is kind with a big smile. What else can you ask for? (A dish comes for less than 15€.)

Café Martini ♥  Metro Bastille or Chemin Vert

After renovations a cosy place with Moroccan lamps and a typical Italian counter where I have had one of the best”creme deca” (coffee) in Paris. Nice atmosphere with people taking their espresso at the bar. If you are having lunch you can sit down on one of the tables. I tried an amazing pizza with black truffles for 8€ and the best Panna cotta with limoncello cream I have had in town. starters/tapas and desserts come for 7-13€ and main are between 18 and 25€. I was happy with 1 tapas plus 1 dessert. Absolutely would recommend this place, even the service could be bit quicker and attentive… especially when you are with kids. Not that they are not nice but you got the feeling they are still rookies in the business. 😉

Le Camion a Pizzas / 104 / Metro Riquet 

Great pizza for 10€

L`Osteria dell Anima  Metro Oberkampf

Homemade fresh pasta, great food, but moody service, does´t take reservations for more than 4.

Il Prezzemolo  Metro Filles du Calvaire

Nice for a sundowner, good antipasti, but packed with people. More a bar than a restaurant. Space for big groups.

I Cugini Metro Poissoiniere or Gare du l´Est

Cosy place and no disappointments, pasta, pizza and wine good and affordable, good for a lovely evening with friends or a date. Only drop of bitterness: the tiramisu wasn´t made with mascarpone.

La Gondula  Metro Oberkampf

Homy, cosy , rustic pizza & pasta place, good for lunch. Good with kids too. Pizza with Pistazzio was super good.

Penne all`arrabbiata

Sure, you might know this dish from pretty much every Italian menu in the entire world… and you might not think of it as something outstanding, just a regular pasta dish. Sometimes you don´t need crazy, you just need really good, really savoury, a mighty meal! And it´s good to have comfort food, that does´t have to surprise you with every bite but gives you this warm feeling of security and comfort. Noodles are quick and easy to do- that´s another reason why they are the perfect comfort food. Try this “simple” pasta and you will taste and know why this dish is on every Italian menu.

  • 100g parma ham
  • 1 glas of pasteurised tomatoes ( or make the tomato sauce yourself with about 600g of tomatoes)
  • 1 bund of parsley
  • 2 chillies
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 big spoons of butter (or more)
  • salt & pepper
  • 500g Penne (for 4)
  • parmesan

Slice the parma ham, cut the onions and garlic. Boil water to blanch the tomatoes and smash them through a strainer to make your own tomato sauce. Boil water and cook the penne almost al dente. Don´t overcook- that´s important because you gonna continue cooking them in the sauce later. Place a big pan on the fire and melt the butter, add the onions and after a minute the parma ham, keep stirring, now add the garlic and chilli. Finally you add the tomato sauce. And yes it´s ok to cheat and to just add a glass (never a can) of pasteurised tomatoes. Let it simmer on low heat for a couple of minutes and keep stirring the sauce. Now get the noodles out of the water and add them to, mix well and let it cook till the noodles are al dente. Meanwhile you can chop the parsley and mix it with the penne. Add salt and pepper, take the chillis out and serve it with parmesan. So yummy!!! Nice with a good red wine…
