1 rue de l’Assomption
Here’s a fairly authentic sushi shop in the fancy 16th district of Paris. It is recommended to come for lunch as menu prices are cheaper.
We had the Chirachi royal (19.5 euros for lunch):
and the Mixte royal (19.5 for lunch):
both accompanied by a small salad (with a bit of seaweed) and a miso shiru:
There’s some interesting fish in there, including some ikura (salmon eggs I believe?) in a maki or some other unidentified (at least for me!) fish.
An interesting desert is the sesame ice cream, pretty tasty:
We also tried the aloe vera (oops, blurry):
You can also have these to go, for example the Mixte Royal (to go) and go and eat those on the chess tables in the nearby garden on Place Rodin:
Overall, I would say that these are a little bit above the average in Paris, but maybe slightly overpriced and still far behind what I had in Tokyo. The restaurant itself doesn’t have a very nice setting, with very little space and high-placed, bar-like tables where you sit on high stools; one could argue that it tries to imitate (though poorly) the atmosphere of certain restaurants in Japan.
