Nugget: All the Japanese cuisine, the real one, in this new Oberkampf shop |  Japanese

Since final October, it has been potential to devour a very refined ramen, curry or yakisoba within the effervescence of rue Oberkampf. There, between the various locations to eat rapidly and cheaply, and the bars that rapidly refill after darkish, the Petit Harajuku makes its strategy to our palate – and into our hearts on the similar time. As a result of right here, nothing is like elsewhere, and nothing is completed by probability. With a chef who has been within the enterprise for 25 years, and who found the stoves within the Japanese kitchens of rue Saint-Anne, it is inconceivable to go mistaken: to eat Japanese like in Japan, you have come to the appropriate place.

Behind the counter: the nice and cozy welcome of Manu, a former banker who determined to embark on the journey after tasting the chef’s delicacies. On this small canteen, we set our sights on one of many home specialties, ramen, wok or katsu – Japanese nationwide dish – out there with pork, hen or tofu. Additionally out there in a katsudon model with an egg, a typical dish eaten by Japanese college students the day earlier than an examination. It crisps, it crunches to the chunk, it warms, it drips and it comforts. In brief, it is good! On the ramen facet, solely recent noodles ready by a Japanese artisan and accompanied by an unimaginable broth simmered for a number of hours. The vegetarian model is well worth the detour with a base of greens, kombu seaweed and shiitake. All with out glutamate or powders – in fact. And when you have somewhat room left, go for a recent salad or gyozas as a starter, and a matcha tiramisu or a yuzu panna cotta for dessert.

“Le Petit Harajuku is a neighborhood of Tokyo that is somewhat kawaii, very fashionable, very younger, filled with eating places and bars to exit… Like Oberkampf, lastly” snigger the 2 homeowners, Manu and the chef. The handle, barely open, however which makes folks comfortable, already has its share of loyal clients. If every dish is made on the spot (no preparation beforehand aside from the simmered broths), the meals is fast, good and cheap, excellent for a top quality lunch break on the sunny terrace. Do not be fooled by the storefront or the nonetheless non-existent decor, the very best jap of the eleventh, it is right here.
