David Lebovitz (2011) “…my previous favorite is the simplest they make: crisp bâtons of pain Poilâne spread with sardine paste, good olive oil drizzled over the top, and a sprinkling of chives…It’s one of the best deals in town (currently around €14), especially considering the top-notch quality of the food.”

Alexander Lobrano (2010)”Not only was the food delicious, but the service was charming and it turned out to be a very good buy to boot.”

Figaroscope (2010) “Difficile de trancher entre la salade de papaye verte (goi du du), les crêpes de riz farcies au porc et champignons (banh cuon), transparentes à force de finesse, et les délicates saucisses de porc à la citronnelle…”

Candelaria by Barbra Austin

Candelaria

With its bright, bare-bones kitchen, crowded counter, communal table, and addictive salsas — all mercifully un-Frenchified — this upper Marais spot has officially changed the game, and people are lining up for tacos and agua fresca. Go through the unmarked door next to the stove and you’ll find a serious bar, staffed by Experimental Cocktail Club grads.

David Lebovitz (2011) “…house made tortillas… deep-fried as a base for tostadas or for chips to dip in guacamole and salsa. Or else served soft, to wrap up sautéed spicy meats or melting cheese with strips of green chiles layered inside for warm taco fillings…Thankfully they’re started doing take-out and they’ve extended their hours.”

Pierrick Jégu for L’Express (2011) “Côté rue, un confetti de taqueria mexicaine qui délivre ses bons tacos carnitas et autres tostadas queso fresco dans une pièce toute blanche pensée au centimètre près pour caser une cuisine ouverte, une table, un comptoir bricolé main, et quelques cactus nains. Côté porte dérobée, au bout du couloir, un bar quasi clandestin dessiné par quelques designers en vogue.”

Le Fooding (2011) “Quelques mètres carrés pleins de crêpes de maïs du jour : longaniza, rajas, tinga… fourrées au fromage, oignon rouge, chipotle, poulet mariné, avocat, piments doux, frijoles…une deuxième salle, nettement plus grande, ambiancée speak easy cosy, cocktail bar…”

Croque Camille (2011) “…these are the best tacos this side of Juarez.  The menu changes periodically, but the carnitas are a standout… They also serve an excellent tostada – none of that overly salad-filled taco shell business here.  Instead, it’s a freshly fried corn tortilla topped with something wonderful.”

Reviews of interest

  • Bruno Verjus (2012) “Pas de méprise, Yoom n’est pas un restaurant chinois, mais un lieu sensuel où les arts de la table et des mets se conjuguent au bonheur des mangeurs…”
  • Emmanuel Rubin – Figaroscope (2012) “Rien à redire à l’affaire qui, dans son genre exotico-mondain, assure un très habile picorage…”
  • Alexander Lobrano (2011) “In the best Asian dim-sum places, each mouthful is meant to be a brilliantly balanced gastronomic spectrum of distinct tastes and textures; at Yoom, they all started to taste the same after a while.”
  • Chroniques du Plaisir (2010) “Côté assiette donc, c’est plutôt bien réalisé et franchement dépaysant. Autre point positif, un décor néo-asiatique chic, paravents ajourés et banquettes turquoises, très agréable.”
  • François-Régis Gaudry – L’Express (2010) “J’ai jeté mon dévolu sur le menu déjeuner à 14,90 € et je dois dire que j’ai été très agréablement surpris : 6 dim sum  exhalant des parfums et des textures à 10 000 km des bouchées douteuses du chinois du coin.”
  • Caroline Mignot (2010) “Un look so charming et travaillé qui plaît à la clientèle du midi rue des Martyrs. Accueil gentil, un peu pressé pour prendre la commande…Dans le cadre du menu à 14,90 €, voici le premier étage de panier vapeur, dont le délicieux poulet-satay aux accents de curry au premier plan…Les autres aux crevettes se défendent bien aussi. Du moelleux, de la fraîcheur, des parfums délicats…”

Figaroscope (2010) “Presque entièrement végétarienne (hormis les desserts) et, avouons-le, délicieuse. Les cocktails de fruits minute, les smoothies du jour, les soupes et veggie stew (légumes vapeur relevés d’herbes et d’épices) ont la fraîcheur et la simplicité du fait maison.”

Barbra Austin via Girls’ Guide to Paris (2010) “…there is a veggie burger, served on a whole-wheat English muffin, with three different salads…Those of you who like it raw could order a bol cru, a deep bowl filled with a rotating cast of vegetables and grains of many colors.”

Alexander Lobrano via David Lebovitz (2009) “…resets the dial with delicious dishes like veggie stew, made with quinoa and garnished with eggplant, pumpkin and sweet potato.”

Caroline Mignot (2009) “…des smoothies bien entendu…des salades, un futomaki du jour (rouleau japonais sacrément bien garni et relevé), des muffins, le tout bien vu…”

Reviews of interest

Emerald Bond (2013) “If you are going to indulge in the cliché (and you should), make sure you do it right. And there truly is nothing more right than the perfectly nutty, crisp cornered salted caramel butter crêpe from Breizh Café… The slogan of Breizh Café, ’La crêpe autrement‘ rings true – it is indeed the crêpe done differently. And by different, I mean better.”

Aaron Ayscough (2011) “It’s a well-run operation with fresh ingredients, good service, and an unbeatable list of ciders. Nothing wrong with the natural-by-numbers wine list, either.”

Meg Zimbeck for BlackBook (2008) “Organic ingredients and a long list of artisanal ciders make Bertrand Larcher’s Breton update a foodie favorite. No lace curtains here – the Breizh is all about slate floors, raw wood, and Japanese crêpe-makers. Simple and delicious with an escape for under €20.”

Dorie Greenspan (2008) “…made with organic ingredients and the fillings can be plain or fancy, sweet or savory.  There’s also a terrific (and terrifcally long) cider list.”

David Lebovitz (2008) “Because owner Bertrand Larcher is a true Breton, the Breizh Café focuses on the quality of the products and lets them shine…”

François Simon (2007) “C’est pourtant pas compliqué : de l’eau, de la farine…ah oui, et un peu de sentiment!”

John Talbott (2007) “…does to crepes what Wolfgang Puck did with pizza; it turns them on their head…
