The rice bowl is swag. You still have doubts? Head for Oïshinoya, the new star Japanese fast-food set up in the Marais and Passage des Panoramas is creating the buzz around donburi, watched by the gang from Passage 53 (2 Michelin stars ) and Gyoza Bar.
So what’s the story? Donburi, literally bowl of rice, is to Japan, what the baguette sandwich is to France: an amazing stuff-it-all snack to be mixed together for a very tasty result.
The base? A super chic rice bowl, perfumed with warm broth to be pimped according to 4 options: wagyu beef (top notch meat from Japan) veggie with organic tofu bio or pork from Dordogne. Customize the lot with a daïkon radish or a coddled egg for a very bling touch. On the side, a small miso soup and edamame (soya beans).
The musts? Meats from star butcher Hugo Desnoyer.
The ideal option for lazy bones: Sushi Shop delivers a fab salmon Donburi (14,90€) or beef (very pretty and upscale at home quality for your TV evenings. All the info.
