KoKo, A Japanese Bistro on the Canal

Restaurant koko terrace

We spy a terrace, with feet-in-the-water potential! The new Japanese gem of the summer, on the Canal de l’Ourcq, opened by the group behind Shabu Sha in the Marais. Koko has the charm of a Parisian bistro that serves Otsumami, the famous Japanese hot and cold tapas. The ideal spot for an improvised bite, accompanied by a cool cocktail or glass of rose.

On the menu: their famous Gua Bao Burger (15€)- already cult-status!, l’Agedashi Tofu (fried tofu with “tsuyu” sauce, 6.5€), Japanese Carprese (tofu, tomates, basil and olive oil, 5€), grilled miso eggplant (7€), Karaage (fried chicken, marinated in ginger and garlic, 6€)....or Green Lava Cake with a gooey green tea interieur (7.50€). Also of note: a super sushi bar with chirashi, dragon roll and other maki….

We love: the crazy cool decor, done by Studio Janreji, that mixes traditional bistro style with pop touches like neon stools.
