The deliciously vintage décor of Mitsou in the very chic 8th arrondissement is the perfect backdrop for a dim sum session, with its turquoise walls hung with photos of the owner’s mother (Mitsou). The menu covers fusion dishes, dim sum (prawn, pork or vegetable) and bo bun (everything from pork satay to citrus-marinated prawns). Then there’s delicious chicken kebabs, spring rolls and a daily special like a red chicken curry with aubergine, healthy and full of flavour.
At midday, a seat can be hard to find – but it’s a perfect spot for the evening, with the staff as full of charm as the surroundings, and a great value tasting menu at €20 for a salad, nine dim sum and coconut rice with orange zest. A refined and friendly canteen whose menu covers both east and west.
