It was not yet 1pm and there was a queue already waiting in front of the restaurant. There was a Japanese man just after us, probably a tourist or business man visiting Paris. This is a good sign and I am quite excited to try this Japanese restaurant, Hakata Choten.
The restaurant is not big and it serves mainly ramen and gyoza. For a lunch menu, you can get 3 gyoza for 2 euro when you order a ramen. Ramen prices are from 10 euro to 15 euro. The gyoza’s wrapping is very thin and the filling is finely chopped. However, I found it a bit oily for me. The soup of the ramen is full of favour and the noodles cooked in the good degree. Next time, I’ll order without the roast porc. I should not say the roast porc is not good here but I finally found out that I do not like Japanese roast porc.
The table next to us was a Japanese woman with her daughter. The girl was eating ramen special without porc. Next time I will try this.
