Mao Dumpling Bar: the sexy buzzing Chinese in the Marais

Mao Dumpling Bar, the new chinese restaurant in the Marais in Paris

Another new address added to the new generation of Chinese venues in Paris.

A new trendy Chinese venue

In the lines of Gros Bao or Panda Panda, here is Mao Dumping Bar, a sexy baby spot, taking the Marais by storm, open under the helm of a young entrepreneur who is orchestrating with brio all the new codes of cool Chinese cuisine, pop culture and foodporn in a decor that seems straight out  of the new up-and-coming districts of Shanghaï.

Impossible to resist the call of large tables installed on the Rue de Saintonge, ideal to show up with the gang and dig into a feast of Asain street food in happy hour mode, doused with stylish beers (yum: Asahi tap!) and good cocktails such as the Shanghaï Mule (€12).

Baos, tapas and cocktails

So just click those chopsticks around their incredible home-made dumplings, such as the addictive Cheezy Jiaozi, this delicious bao made with pork, chives, melted cheddar, of the spicy Sichuan version with peanuts and chili oil (€11 for 8 pieces). The other speciality: Dan Dan Miam noodles, to slurp with a sesame sauce, chopped pork or tofu, peanuts and chives (€12 per bowl).

To be tested, shared and reordered: delicious Chinese tapas, starting with their amazing Taiwanese fried chicken (€10), sauteed eggplants or spring onion pancakes (€8) and frosty mochis (€5).

Open every day from noon to 10:30pm. Closed on Monday.

Also to be discovered: Grand Bao and Tonton Yun, the best Chinese in Paris.
