Soma: delicious japan-fusion food bistrot in Paris
In the Marais, my all time favorite area in Paris is located my current favorite eating spot: Soma. Sourasack Phongphet, the Laos-born flamboyant chef, is cooking live behind his counter, with a straw hat on his head and he delivers one of the best Japanese/fusion cuisine in town: think ceviche, black cod, grilled aubergine, spicy tuna makis, green tea octopus salad, divine black Angus steak with teriyaki sauce laid out on black radishes; ginger pork…all to be paired with a smart wine-list. The atmosphere is always lively, attracting a rather style-conscious/fashion crowd and the staff adorable.
A must do if you are in Paris!
