WHY JUNK FOOD ?

 

I was lucky enough to travel the world and i always asked the people i met throughout my trips to show me their local adresses in order to make sure i would get the best experience . 

I hosted many of my friends in Paris and of course i tried to show them the best original spots in the city . 

the offer for food in Paris is tremendous but one has to realise that there is a vast number of restaurants and spots that are at best ordinary and at worst dreadfull . indulging yourself to junk food is not a crime if you chose carefully 

So, to make sure you'll make the best of your stay in the City , let me take you on a trip to the best and affordable junk treats Paris has to offer . 

WELCOME & most of all : ENJOY....

YIKOU : The DIM SUM REVOLUTION

49 Rue de l'Aqueduc, 75010 Paris
M°STALINGRAD

A DIM SUM is a Chinese dish of small steamed or fried savoury dumplings containing various fillings. For those of you who loves DIM SUM and for those of you who never tried , there's is a perfect place for you . 

YiKou is the perfect illustration of the best your globalised 21st century can bring  . It starts with a friendship between the freshly arrived in Paris Chinese Chen and French Pierre. they crossed references on their food knowledge : Chen travelled across France to discover french cuisine traditions while Pierre was travelling through China with the same agenda . Both got amused with the similarities they encountered . It was decided then to give Chinese Dim Sum the french filling treatment .

The result is not only visually stunning and savoury , it gives a original twist to a classic from starters to explosive desserts . the menu also propose a lucious BAO burger and like DIM SUM was not enough , Yikou also serves incredible and unprecedented ( in my book ) rice fries . 

If you're living in Paris , you should come as many time as you want to try the whole thing but if you're here just for a visit the "Muraille à 2" menu is the best choice you could make to try as much things as you can for a real decent price .
