Fanfan, here is the name of the French-Asian gourmet restaurant orchestrated by chef Julien Burbaud set a stone's throw from the Place de l'Etoile. Original cooking, innovative pairings, one thing is sure, the plate is never boring.

Fanfan is the name of the fusion restaurant set in Paris 17th arrondissement providing a gourmet journey between France and Japan.

Once you arrive, discover a big bar and two spaces. One being darker for intimate nights, the other, brighter, under the glass ceiling with a floral decor on the wall, more fitted for lunch.

With many travels to Asia down the belt, Burbaud serves French cuisine twisted with Japanese and Asian notes. Pair the French know-how with Asian produces, and here is a very mouthwatering result. As an outcome, surprising dishes and original pairings with produces not usually available on the menu of a gourmet restaurant.

Are you tired of always finding the same flavors and produces in restaurant? Perhaps is this time to make your taste buds travel the enchanted world of Fanfan? Come along and discover the Menu Experience (€69 for 5 courses, and €89 for 7 courses).

Start your meal with an uncommon trompe l'oeil, the edible charcoal which actually is activated charcoal cassava. The sweetness of manioc paired with fresh herbal sauce is a must.

Then, the chef serves the Oeuf de son enfance. Another trompe l'oeil, the egg white is made of cauliflower and marinated egg. The whole is served in a shell filled with keffir lime and smoked eel emulsion, with crispy soldier.

As for turf, discover La Canette, very graphic with tuiles and wild garlic sauce. We love the shiitake tartlette-inspired side.

If you find the wasabi dessert too disturbing, go for the Coco/Mango based on genuine coconut ice cream, mango marmalade and curable spruced up with ginger.
