"The dress does not make the monk" found a new witness. For if the decoration does not look, do not be deceived, it is indeed a restaurant / canteen kitchen quality Asian. Especially since this one is entirely elaborated on the spot and in generous...More

Reminded me of my years in China, so that means the food tastes authentic! The price is also great for Paris, and the ladies working there are really fast.

you'll come across little gems of architecture
spanning the centuries, from understated medieval

splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of
