Did you know this? There exists a place on earth where Asi and Latin America form on entity. Bull’s eye, the meeting point of these two continents which everything opposes at the outset happens to be in Paris, on the flamboyant Rue du Dragon. Already at the helm of the Korean restaurant KBG across the street, David Ly does it again with Sin Ko, the new trendy Latino-Asian address.
A successful fusion
Do you like baos? Do you like tacos? So, you will adore their taco bao (€17), a very clever recipe inspired by these two symbols of street-food. Concretely, the bao is folded in two, like a tortilla, and garnished with a terrific preparation of beef teriyaki. The sacred union is sealed.
Same principle for the empanadas made with corn flour and also stuffed with beef teriyaki (€12), the gyoza filled with duck breast à l’orange pimped with a honey and spice house sauce(€12), or the Tokyo style chili con carne with crunchy meatballs (€25).
On the menu also, the famous smoked guacamole served smoking… yes, yes, you will see (€10) ! A sea bass ceviche with coconut for light appetites (€25) and as a final treat, roasted pineapple and fresh mango with spices.
A far-flung cocktails bar
Pssst! A super stylish cocktails bar is hidden on the upper level in a decor straight out of a Frida Kahlo painting (intense blue bar, terracotta counter). The really talented mixologist has concocted bewitching exotic creations, such as the Kung Fu Pandan, a rum base infused with pandan, liqueur and juice of coconut, pimento (cocktails €13-15). It even offers a dish-cocktails pairing during dinner (€35).
And one evening a month, Sin Ko organises a big fiesta. Around 9:30pm, the entire restaurant morphs into a club with Reggaeton sounds and Cuban music galore. Vamos !
Lunch menu starting at €19.
