I’m rather reluctant when it comes to integrating with the Japanese community in Paris but I often find myself sniffing out genuine fragments of Japan in Paris – whether it be the simple, subtle aesthetics – or as it turns out – the kitsch, contemporary aspects of my homeland.
In the beautiful city of Paris, known for its café culture and mouth-watering patisserie displays, why head to Sazanka? Here you can catch up over an ‘Omu-rice’ (seasoned rice enveloped in a fluffy omelette, which is the perfect comfort food!) or pop in for an extended coffee break with a matcha parfait. A matcha parfait is dessert heaven for the sweet-toothed matcha lover. You won’t be able to polish this off after a meal, so definitely come by for a ‘goûter’ mid-afternoon.
The presentation gives a nod to our detail-obsessed culture, whilst being served up on quirky colourful dishes under the sparkling chandelier – but somehow, it works. Somehow it’s authentic.
