Japanese cuisine seems to be becoming better and better presented in Pigalle; Momoka, Ito and Tsubame all opened in 2013 within a few streets of each other, and now here's Peco Peco.

We came at lunchtime to try a donburi (€8.50), balls of rice filled with meat and vegetables – salmon, shiitake mushrooms, egg and peas, for example, or sweet and sour beef with rocket and ginger – paired with a bowl of soup for €3.50. Or if you want to really go for it, perhaps a Katsusandwich (€4.50) – a delicious snack with breaded pork, red cabbage and home made BBQ sauce piled into a fresh, crunchy baguette.

In the evenings, there's a kushiage party; the Japanese chef manning the ovens turning out forests of these sticks of fried vegetables (€1.50), meat (€2.50) or cheese (€2.50), flanked by edamame, salads and more. The venue isn't very big or smart, but for a cheery, busy atmosphere at the small tables and street food vibe, this is a hit.
