The udon bar for trendy twigs: Kunitoraya


Aside from the fact you happen to be in one of the best Japanese restaurants on the street, you also are onboard the most fashion cantina of Paris, a favorite of gallery owners in the know, VIP and actresses as well as movie agents, in short those on the lookout for a« healthy and cosmopolitan eats».

A far cry from the greasy « holes in the wall» in the area, this little nugget plays the 100% Japanese card right down to the tip of the chopsticks in an old Parisian bistrot decor… A pleasure that is sure to titillate Japanese gals visiting Paris and foodies looking for unusual places.

Their specialty we adore? Bowlas of udons, Japanese noodles to inhale with slurpy noises at lunchtime. Our favorite? Ultra refined shrimp or veggie nuggets + the famous udons to be dipped in a cold or hot bouillon (22€).

Tops also: donburis, big bowls or rice garnished with breaded pork and curry (18€) or nuggets (23€).

Careful: prices are on the rise in the evening (90€ for the tasting menu).

Closed: Monday and Sunday night
