Takara

Takara

If I had to name my “cantine”, only one restaurant, where I’ve been mostly in the recent years, it would be Takara (14 Rue Molière, 75001 Paris). It’s a traditional Japanese restaurant located in Paris “Little Japan” where you can have anything from sushi to shabu shabu or sukiyaki. I think its success lies not in the traditional waitresses attire or that the decorations and ukiyo-e prints on the walls make you travel to Japan. Even when you order simple lettuce with avocado and Japanese sauce, you are sure that the ingredients will be of top quality. Takara is always full with regulars (especially during fashion weeks) and visitors from Japan, so booking is a must. (And it’s not even listed on Michelin, who can explain that?)
