NA – Cute Asian lunch & tearoom

I have probably never eaten as much Asian food as I have since I started living in Paris. Japanese, Vietnamese and Chinese restaurants are literally to be found everywhere. They offer an excellent alternative to the tasty but slow and heavy French food, which may be a reason for their success.

However, one of the things I regret about many Asian restaurants is that little creativity is invested in the decoration of their restaurants. NA, a tiny lunch & tearoom with the shortest name possible, is a welcome change. It is a cosy place where you can enjoy your bubble tea in aesthetic tranquility.

Another peculiarity is that NA offers Taiwanese cuisine, which is still a bit of a minority in the land of Asian restaurants. The cook is a true Taiwanese and the tapioca pearls that are served in the bubble tea are imported directly from Taiwan. Their menu offers few but fresh meals for lunch and a much bigger choices of teas, which makes it a good stop for my way back from a visit of the Luxembourg gardens.
