Korean dumplings. Mandoobar is a little gem in Paris, in the 8tharrondissement. When we usually talk about Korean food, we think bulgogi or bibimbap. But this time the menu is a little different.
A very tiny place, 20 seats. Everything is cooked in front of you. The décor is very simple and efficient: wood and bricks.
Mandoos are Korean dumplings: pork/beef, cabbage/tofu, beef bulgogi or kimchi.
There are, as well, three kinds of tartare. The beef and the tuna tartar were just delicious. As a side you should get the Korean salad (cabbage, soybean, bell pepper, yellow radish).
As a dessert, you will find some homemade ice cream. We tried ginger/caramel and yuzu/Espelette chili.
The chef has a fun collection of Korean vinyl, which make a great soundtrack for the restaurant.
