If you loved Asian canteen The Hood – open in 2015 – that quickly became a staple in the area, then you will love the new project carried out by the same team, opening just across The Hood, rue Jean-Pierre Timbaud in the 11th arrondissement!
Now, foodies can discover Nonette, the new banh-mi counter by The Hood: Khanh-Ly Huynh in the kitchen and Pearlyn Lee at the helm! And let us tell you now, Nonette is meeting an incredible success, according to the queue to the counter - but be rest assured, it goes quick!
On takeout or on site, in this mini-eatery, high-quality street food based on banh-mi for the savory side and donuts for the sweet side. A duality explained by the chef Khank-Ly Huynh's Vietnamese background and American culture!
The idea of banh-mi appeared in 2017 to Khanh-Ly Huynh: the day after a Thanksgiving special menu, Khanh-Ly decided to serve the turkey leftovers in a comforting sandwich, while keep The Hood’s dear Asian and popular DNA.
Available at Nonette, a summer menu consisting in 5 banh-mi and new recipes coming this fall. We recommend the Dac Biet banh-mi (€7.50) with five meats, all made on site (!): thit nguoi ham (porchetta-like pork belly), cha lua (nuoc nam and pork pie steamed in banana leaf), xa xiu (marinated, grilled, and thinly sliced pork belly), cha bong (desiccated soy pork loin), and poultry leaver pie with shallot and soy. A hearty banh-mi filled with flavorsome meats.
We also love the Thit Ko banh-mi (€8.50), a banh-mi based on caramel pork rillettes, for a sweet and savory taste, very pleasant. To twist with pickled piri-piri, to keep things spicy!
And let us cheer to this beautiful discovery with green tea, lemon and honey bubble tea (€7), with thin tapioca beads, and let us move on to dessert: donuts!
At Nonette, enjoy regressive donuts filled with 3 original creams to choose including the famous kaya (€1.80), the famous coconut milk paste, and the surprising vanilla-black garlic cream (€2.50). Far from being too fat or too heavy, Nonette donuts are light and make you wrap your meal up on a delicate note.
A new street location already delighting the neighborhood!
