In the famous Parisian district of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, a stone's throw from the Jardin du Luxembourg and the Église Saint-Sulpice, The Cod House attracts crowds of gourmets who come to taste the fresh, original Franco-Japanese-inspired dishes of the establishment. Like in a Japanese izakaya (which is to Japan what a bistro or wine bar is to France, a pub to England or a tapas bar to Spain), you lean over the counter to enjoy a cocktail conjured up the bartender to suit your taste and mood, using a selection of yuzu, matcha or sake from Japan's finest producers.
In a light-filled, urban loft-like space, take the time to relax on the cushions of the long and comfortable bench seats, then order some plates of tasty tapas. On the menu, Caesar salad revisited with wasabi, Tokyo patatas bravas, crispy chicken baos with a tonkatsu sauce, green tea crème brûlée.... Tempted?
