La Mer de Chine

Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

Tucked away in an inconspicuous enclave of Paris's Chinese quarter, La Mer de Chine is an exception to the rule of heavy sauces and high salt content in many a 'Traiteur Asiatique': everything here is subtly flavoured, well executed and carefully thought out. The more adventurous could start with jellyfish salad, hundred-year-old egg doughnut or tripe; beginners stick to five-flavoured beef shank (€12.50), crispy lemon chicken (€12.80) or a soup like the petit potage with asparagus and crab (€6.50): simple, flavoursome and sesaring hot. To finish, some perfectly ripened mango.

A truly remarkable place. Sophisticated, authentic, well-researched Cantonese food done with great talent and care. The steamed chicken sounds like the blandest thing ever and turns out spectacular. This is a place to try stuff you've never had before, food that does not appear on the menus of the formulaic restaurants around the area. Classy dining room, kind service, a great time for business and pleasure alike.
