Traditional Vietnamese cooking in the 14th.
When venturing into an unknown land it’s always best to seek the advice of an expert in the field – because there’s nothing worse than being in 14th without a good place to eat. Which is how we found this tiny traditional Vietnamese, which is packed wall to brick wall with diners when we visit. The bo bun is legendary, super-fresh and fragrant with sautéed lemongrass beef and pork nems. And, a rarity in Paris, banh xéos, crepes stuffed generously with soy beans, mushrooms and coriander, for dipping in the tía tô sauce.
Don’t miss the banh cuon either, sticky rice-flour dumplings with sha lo, like a Vietnamese cured sausage, made with cinnamon pork or in veggie version. Delicious.
