The buzzing hot spot on Rue Saint Anne

Korean restaurant in Paris

In London, the super trendy restaurant of Korean street-food On the Bab is always full. After Soho or Shoreditch, the Empire of Linda Lee now includes Paris, obviously a skip and a hop from Rue Saint-Anne. And it’s already a big buzz.

From local holes-in-the-wall, On the Bab is part of the new K-Food movement that is creating a sensation.

And with reason, this highly glamour’ cantina perfect masters the new equation of coolness: a great decor, food-pairing (shared dishes) so you can taste everything… and sip yummy cocktails in a chic atmosphère.


Bab Twigim”, Asian arrancini with kimchi and cheese, and a nice choice of Korean barbecues, or in mini-rolls stuffed with meats in Paris

So now just settle in and order by pencilling your order on paper…

In keeping with the name of the restaurant, literal translation of “served with rice”: their incredible bibimbap (€13), the “Bab Twigim”, Asian arrancini with kimchi and cheese, and a nice choice of Korean barbecues (served on rice), or in mini-rolls stuffed with meats.

Another speciality, Korean-style fried chicken, to be dipped in a garlic mayo or a hot-spicy sauce.


Bao with stuffed with Korean BBQ in Paris

Another speciality, the bao, is the must-eat of the house, served as plump sandwiches, stuffed with Korean BBQ (€14a pair). Just choose yours : bulgogi-style beef, fried mushrooms…

To drink with all these delights: Korean beers, blackberry wine (€5 per glass) a plumb ice tea (€5), alchool-free cocktails such as the Sparkling Ginger, with honey and yuzu (€7) or more bewitching potions with saké such as the Cherry Blossom (€10). In short: avery “Crazy Rich Asians” spirit. Everything we like !


Open Monday to Sunday from noon to 10pm.

Also discover Seoul Mama, the buzzing korean cantina and Crying tiger, the thai bistrot that gives atmosphere to the 6th.
