In le Marais, vacation or not, it is possible to travel around the world without leaving home. Few in number twenty years ago, the gastronomic offer is now abundant, with many quality addresses in varied styles.

Each time, it’s a journey for the taste buds and a change of scenery for the mind. In short, the culinary adventure is just around the corner and takes us to Machu Pichu (Peru), Mount Fuji (Japan), Italy, Morocco or Brittany.

Arrival from Peru

Salmon cebiche at Mancora Cebicheria, © cookhour

In South America, Peru is considered the country with the best food. Mancora Cebicheria, rue Dupetit-Thouars, confirms that this reputation is not usurped. Here we enjoy “ceviche” (from €14; one of them is vegetarian) prepared fresh which seems to arrive directly from the port of Lima. The service is very friendly and the bill reasonable. We also love the balsamic octopus at €18.

One wonders if it is not quite simply the best Japanese restaurant in Paris... It is in any case the one which most authentically recreates the atmosphere of the streets of Tokyo, where one eats there on-the-go cuisine with subtle flavors. Between street food and gastronomy, this Tokyo restaurant, which offers, among other things, caramelized pork ribs and grilled mackerel with Korean sauce, is one of the good deals at the Enfants-Rouges market. It's delicious and inexpensive. Tofu bentos at €13,50.

It serves Moroccan tapas, for brunch or lunch, summer couscous, batbout (semolina bread, garnished with vegetables and merguez), hummus, an exceptional fig-olive tapenade, homemade granola and much more. pastries with low sugar content. It's beautiful, bright, welcoming and warm.

Another cabin, but facing the Atlantic, or more precisely towards the English Channel. This club of oysters, shellfish and other crustaceans comes directly from Dinard, in Brittany where the salty air sweeps faces and refreshes plates. The menu is on the slate and changes according to the fishing and the seasons.

Forza Italia!


Firstly, this discreet trattoria does not seek to show off. But, secondly, it is an address that has proven itself with Italian classics: vegetarian or meat lasagna, Parmiggiani (baked eggplant-tomato-cheese millefeuille) at €10, Caprese salad (tomato mozzarella) at €12 and pizzas to die for. They also serve different options: “AperolSpritz like in Venice”, LimoncelloSpritz or BluSpritz (in Curaçao) for €10. The storefront doesn't look like much and you can walk past it a thousand times without paying attention. Which would be a mistake.

Oysters and fish: P'tit Mousse knows his job

Why bother going to Wepler or La Coupole, when there is P'tit Mousse? Both an oyster bar and a fish restaurant, this address on Rue Rambuteau advantageously replaces the Parisian brasseries on Place Clichy and Boulevard Montparnasse.
