Noglu (Paris 3e) (CLOSED)
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
The third Noglu outpost (with Tsuyoshi Miyazaki at the helm) will astonish any sceptic with its gluten-free delights.
Powder pink walls scrawled with slogans like “Keep the gluten away” and “Je t’aime moi noglu” might suggest we’re in a healthy food temple. And while the lunch menu (€24) at the third address for the Noglu team is a picture of good health, it's also packed with mouthwatering foodie delights. So as not to miss the show put on by Japanese chef Tsuyoshi Miyazaki (ex-Passage 53) and his su-chef, we sit at the bar rather than on the grey velour banquettes.
To start, beetroot/cashew nut/gorgonzola/raspberry – a fresh combination which isn’t overpowered by the cheese. Then velvety potatoes and delicious pieces of caramelised haddock with crusty breadcrumbs, which is gone far too quickly. A plump, juicy chicken piece comes nestling in spring onions and camembert. Even the bread is soft and fresh, making it easy to forget you're in a gluten-free restaurant.
And the "Panna Coco" carries on in the same delicious vein; a light mousse with coconut, lemongrass, roasted mango and pineapple cubes. If we could eat here every day, we’d go 100% gluten-free.
