162 Rue Montmartre 75002 Paris
I have a Friday night “date night” ritual with my boyfriend and normally it involves me choosing a restaurant from my list and going there for dinner. This time, it was my boyfriend who wanted to choose a place and so I welcomed that thought with open arms and an empty stomach! He did some digging through LaFourchette (yes, this place is on it = they take reservations!) and chose a restaurant that was small, intimate but in an area that I love (which is currently the 2ème) and Bonpot is what he found! It’s very small so reservations are a must! But it’s a really cute place with great Korean food that you can enjoy in a comfortable setting.

Whenever it’s possible, especially during school vacation, I try my best to have lunch with boyfriend who works in the fancy 8ème (just like me) off of the Champs-Elysées. Finding places to eat around here can be tricky consider our budgets aren’t very high. But there are some places like Motto Burger that can be accesible to smaller budgets and delivers great fusion flavours of France and Japan that will make your stomach sing!

My boyfriend is pretty happy that I’m putting his recommendation of Krua Thai on The List… but why? Because it’s small but intimate, family-run (=friendly) and the food is great (no lining up included!). I love trying to find hidden gems like this and I hope you will get a chance to enjoy it too!

In the 2ème arrondissement, down an alleyway, there’s a tiny place called Mr. Zhao, a restaurant that specializes in BiangBiang noodles (thick) from Xi’an. It’s interior is very much Swedish design with touches of China. The food was yummy and bursting with spicy flavours. This contrast of simplicity and boldness will lure you in!
54 Rue de Longchamp, 75116 Paris
Ever heard of Waygu? It’s the strand of Japanese beef where you can find the famous Kobe beef as well. Well mix together Japanese beef with French flavours and American burger traditions and you get Baagaa, the fusion burger place to be!
27 Rue Meslay 75003 Paris
When your nose starts sniffing delicious BBQ smells about 200m away, you know it has to be good! The Beast is a great BBQ go-to that’s reasonably priced for the quality they’re pushing out. If you’re a North American like myself who has these cravings every so often, this is the place to go!
9 Rue Mandar, 75002 Paris
In a city that’s filled with shawarma and pita around almost every corner, how do you find one that stands out from the late-night/touristy rest? Well look no further than the Montorgueil area for this gem of souvlaki maison (homemade)! All the right flavours in all the right places!
20bis rue de Douai 75009 Paris
I finally made my way to the famous new addition to the Big Mamma group of Italian restaurants: Pink Mamma! Some of you may have already had your newsfeeds filled with pictures of the beautiful glass ceiling on the top floor or of the amazing Italian food that rarely disappoints! For those of you who don’t know about this place, keep reading and preferably without an empty stomach (automatic torture will ensue!)
29 rue Mazarine 75006 Paris
For all you ramen lovers, this is a place that brings both quality and style together! From the Japanese decorated interior to the fact that they have their own field where they grow the wheat for the noodles, the wait in line will be worth it!
