Japanese pancake restaurant in Paris

A couple of years ago we found a Japanese pancake restaurant in Paris and have since lost the address of it. Does anyone know the name and address of this place.

You can't just say something like that without an explanation.

I'll bite. So what is a Japanese Pancake, and why are they serving them in Paris (and not here in SF for example)?

Hi

It is a pancake made out of potatoes or rice with diferrent meats and vegetables on top. Some with noodles. It was crispy on the bottom and very tasty.

Does it come with real maple syrup or the fake stuff?

Karen, they do not sound like you would put syrup on them, they are savoury pancakes. Just like you wouldn't put syrup on latkes ( potato pancakes) .

Sue, they sound yummy, but since I live on the west coast I think they are most likely pretty easy to get here( we have tons of Asian restaurants here, from Japanese , Thai, Chinese, Vietemese, Cambodian, etc, ) so I think I will still stick to french food in Paris. I did go for Chinese once in Paris and was so dissappointed, they could not do Szechuan at all , very bland!!!!

Pat, you may be right about the Chinese food in Paris (I don't know) but I can vouch for great Vietnamese food there. And when in London, I eat at least one or two meals in Chinatown...I know that Vancouver has a great Chinese community, but London can easily match the food.

Pat, the majority of the chinese population in Paris are cantonese speakers, from the south or from Hong Kong. Similar to the chinese population in Vancouver, so I'm not surprised you got terrible Szechuan food.

Paris has a decent size chinatown. When we were lost, I stumbled across it, and fortunate for me, I speak Chinese. Between my husband's French, my Chinese, and the bilingual Chinese Parisian, we were able to find our destination.

Sue, some cities have a Japanese section of town. I don't know if Paris does, but perhaps you can inquire if they have one?
