If you’re walking around Paris and are starting to feel like it might be time to eat but you don’t want to spend hours and tons of euros to do so, Little Seoul is a very good option. You won’t eat French, but Korean. Still, you’ll be eating in a nice covered passage near Opera Garnier.
This passage is filled with tiny shops and restaurants, and even as a French person, I do enjoy Parisian passages. It’s always like a bubble in the city. So every time I get the chance, I go and eat there.
In total honesty, it’s a canteen, but they have menus that are cheap and everything is really good and filling. I’d recommend the menus with gyozas as a starter and a bibimbap. You’ll be filled with tastes but still won’t be too stuffed to keep walking and discovering the city.
The staff is really nice and there’s more space upstairs if it’s too crowded. It’s well known so if you arrive during the office lunch hours, you might have to wait. The only drawback is that it’s open only as long as the passage is, meaning that it closes at 7 pm.
If you go there, you’ll get to discover the passage Choiseul and eat good food for cheap in a different atmosphere.
