Not really korean food, rather fusion, « bao » or « bun » are having their glory days in London, New York and now Paris. Pac-Man shaped bread filled with meat/tofu/fish with a spread of caramelized sauce and crunchy veggies, the pillowy texture of the bread can leave no one indifferent.
At SaAm, near Canal Saint-Martin, the buns get the korean influence from the chef Kim Yoonsun with Bossam, Gochujang and kimchi. If you want to try something else than just buns, take the fried Gimbaps to share.
For lunch, there is a menu with two buns of your choice, a drink and a dessert for 15euros. The restaurant is suitable for coaeliacs and vegetarians.
Where? 59bis rue de Lancry – Paris 75010

Gwangjang market is a traditional Korean market established since 1905. It is famous for Bindae-tteok (빈대떢), which has the shape of a pancake, made of mung beans and vegetables. The mung beans are freshly grounded in the stone grinder, then mixed with vegetables and fried. Makgeolli is the perfect drink to pair with this dish.

The most original and impressive street food can be found in South Korea: from rainbow cotton candy to more traditional specialties, it is food heaven at any time of the day. And like fashion, there are trends: currently it seems like Churros are very popular as I often see people forming a line in Itaewon and Apgujeong. I really appreciate how food is presented with creativity and how delicious it is. I recently discovered those strawberry mochi covered with red bean paste in Myoung-dong and also the best Tteokbokki -떡볶이 in Samcheong-dong area. Tteokbokki can be spicy and hot, if you are not used to eat this kind of food, be cautious. It reminds me of my childhood, and it is a dish which is enjoyed at any moment of the day.
If you want to try a traditional korean dessert, have a « Ho-ppang » -호빵, which is rice cake filled with honey or brown sugar. It is a sweet treat any Korean has tried at least once during their childhood.
I came across many vegetarians in Seoul. Finding vegan dishes in South Korea can be a challenge with the language barrier. All the food pictured in this article are suitable for them.

Every time I come in Korea, the first coffee I visit is Sukkara. It is located in the calm part of Hongdae. I love this place because their chai latte & tofu cheesecake are the best in Seoul. I have tried many Chai latte but very often they were just too sweet (added sugar) and not enough spicy.
Sukkara is also famous for proposing vegetarian/organic dishes.
Chaque fois que je retourne en Corée, le premier café que je visite est Sukkara. Il est situé dans la partie calme de Hongdae. J’adore cet endroit car leur chai latte et leur cheesecake au tofu sont les meilleurs de Seoul. J’ai essayé beaucoup d’autre Chai latte mais ils étaient trop sucrés et pas assez épicés.

One of my favorite vegetarian canteen in Paris is Bob’s Kitchen. There are 3 different addresses: Bob’s Juice bar at 15, rue Lucien Sampaix, not far from the Canal Saint Martin and Bob’s Bakery at the Halles Pajol near Gare du Nord. Bob’s Kitchen is opened for breakfast + lunch and on week ends you have an amazing brunch with pancakes.
I always take the same thing: juice from the cold pressery, a veggie stew and for dessert my favorite matcha cookie. I have not yet taken a picture of those small treats, I always forget to take one before it ends in my mouth ! The crust is made with matcha and they are filled with chocolate. I should also try their muffin one day but the cookie is too good to be missed ! :-d
Address: 74, avenue des Gravilliers – Paris 75003, not far from Pompidou and Beaubourg library.
