Tien Hiang, Paris France

Location: 14 Rue Bichat, 75010 Paris, France

One of my favorite restaurants in Paris is Tien Hiang. Everything we have had here has been amazing and what I still have to find in Berlin. Their mock meats are my favorites and it is just really good. So when we went back to Paris for a few days the first place we visited was Tien Hiang. Really we had wanted to go back at least once more on that trip, but we unable to fit it in. We started this visit with the fried dumplings. I love dumplings and these were tasty. The sauce that came with them was odd. Sweet and kind of like a barbecue sauce which was interesting and not expected.

We also tried the radish cake. This was also good, but greasy. It had a light flavor, but I enjoyed it.

Our first main was the caramelized chicken clay pot which was so unbelievably good! I could have eaten a heaping plate full of this stuff. It was mock chicken, shallots, coconut milk, ginger and tofu. There were large pieces of ginger and the mock chicken was my favorite kind, though I don't know what it is exactly. It was so good. I wish I had some now...

We also tried the Vermicelli with lemongrass beef - lemongrass, onion, tofu, soya pieces, peanuts, cucumber and mint. This was also very tasty. Fresh and light, but hard to top the caramelized chicken. Still very good.

Overall - I love Tien Hiang. Definitely try and stop by if you are in Paris.
