After rushing into Passage Verdeau to escape from the crowd, here we are, in front of a flowered façade. Neko Ramen brings quietness and typical Japanese dishes to the heart of the 9th arrondissement. A Japanese canteen where it feels good to eat and have a (gourmet) good time at.
Whether you go for a table across the open-plan kitchen or around the cherry tree upstairs, Paris seems so far away… All covered in wood, this gourmet spot knows how to make us forget about the outdoor hustle and bustle. Without talking about the house merry team taking great care of us from start to end.
By the way, if fresh produces come from local and organic producers as much as possible, the other supplies are directly imported from Japan. Authenticity and concern for quality are the watchwords.
We have to say that the master of the place, Sedrik Allani, was trained by the best ramen chefs in the world, at Rajuku – the famous Tokyo Ramen school. The result is that the broth stews for a veeeeeery long time for as many flavors as possible (+100 ingredients), the Tonkatsu and Katsudon breaded pork is crunchy.
No matter what typical dish from Tokyo eateries you have, they all are homemade with a big splash of love. Honorable mention to the big gyozas and breaded pork nibbles that makes us drool.
As for sweet options, regulars only bet with the yuzu cheesecake (such a delight!) and Mahaut’s matcha cookies who didn’t want to share the recipe.
For them and more, let’s all go to Neko!
