If you’re looking for a different kind of Japanese restaurant in Paris, don’t go further: Blueberry is the most certainly the right choice. Hidden in the tiny rue du Sabot, Blueberry is a bit like a basement full of gems. Don’t judge it on the narrow window: everything takes place in the back.

For once, it is the setting that catches the eye, something seldom in a Parisian Japanese restaurant. Here, it is all about colorful lanterns, raw materials, light effects and the atmosphere of a canteen for happy few. You are comfortable even though you might regret the vicinity with your neighbors.

On the menu’s side, everything is original. The team has decided to surprise you and took the time to create unexpected associations. Hence you can try a Little Miss Yuzu, one of the numerous makis pimped by the chef who doesn’t seem to lack imagination. You can start with the classical edamame, unless you want to get right into it with the Geisha de la rue du Sabot… Keep some appetite for the dessert and give a shot to the black sesame or frozen mochis (a pure delight).

Price: about 35 Euros per person


What makes Seminyak so particular is its variety of restaurants and flavors. Ultra-Europeanized district, Oberoi is the place where you can find the Ryoshi, a Japanese restaurant that helds the comparison with the best ones in big cities.

The setting is rather at odds with the Indonesian style and its quiet and peacefulness makes the difference with the noisy bars and restaurants around. You enter Ryoshi like a sanctuary to discover fine and delicate food. The menu is full of special dishes that will attract your attention. Fish is tasty, maki are surprising and barbecue is delicious. Sweet tooth will treat themselves with the cheesecake; not Japanese but so good…

Be careful: the Japanese-style tables in the back demand that you take off your shoes.

Price: about IDR 160 000 for sushi, maki, a cheesecake and green tea
