Looking for a tasty venue to enjoy comfort food in a convivial setting? Head to Paris 10th arrondissement, at 25Hours Hotel Terminus Nord. This is where Neni expects you, a family restaurant inviting you to a genuine culinary Road Trip. Here, one meets over a cuisine of sharing based on cosmopolitan mezzes. Let us tell you more about it.
First of all, you shall know that behind this place stands Israeli chef Haya Molcho and her four sons: Nuriel, Elior, Nadiv and Ilan. Have you not noticed anything? The first letters of the four sons make the name of the restaurant! Together, they have come up with a concept aiming at indulging us to flavors likely to please everyone, while inviting us to eat some rather little-known delights.
Here, enjoy a mix of several cultures: Israeli, Arabian, Persian and even Russian or French specialties and flavors. The service is completed Balagan style, namely dishes are placed on the table and each guest helps themselves. It has it all for you to have a very friendly moment while enjoying hearty cuisine.
As a starter, you can go for the three mezzes served on a tiered tray. We love the beetroot hummus and the Moroccan cigars stuffed with ground meat, and the falafels, a staple! The difference? A pop-corn-based preparation for more crunch and lightness. It is probably one of the best we have ever had so far.
As for main courses, we went for the chicken shawarma served with grilled red onions, mashed potatoes, garlic cream, and fresh herbs such as cilantro (you can have it removed it you are not crazy about it). The marinated poultry is very tender, and we love it.
For burger fans, the Neni version is based on pulled beef, cheddar, homemade barbecue sauce and sweet potato fries, the whole served with mango aioli. The restaurant managed to add their own touch to this classic.
But careful, if you want to get something for you only, we highly recommend you choose between starters or mains since they all are very hearty. As delicious as mains are, if your eyes are bigger than your belly, you might not be able to make it through!
To finish your tasting on a sweet note, there is nothing quite like something fresh. And you cannot miss the Sesam3 with muscovado ice cream, toasted sesame, halva, caramelized pecans and date syrup. Perfect to finish this road trip!
