Chef Kaori Endo crafts inventive, affordable dishes with Franco-Japanese flavours.
Le Petit Keller is exactly the kind of neighbourhood restaurant we all want to live next door to. The large zinc counter, wooden tables and spiral staircase create a fairly traditional backdrop, one that belies the exciting Franco-Japanese flavours you’ll find on your plate. The spot is open all day and serves exciting and affordable dishes crafted by chef Kaori Endo, like nitamagos (marinated poached eggs, €3) and silky, intense adzuki hummus made from Japanese red beans. At lunch Le Petit Keller serves donburis, a sort of rice bowl with various toppings like an irresistible grilled mackerel with miso sauce (€13). To finish, the strawberry tart with its crispy shell and flecks of matcha establish the restaurant as both hip and a good place to eat.
