With strong experience from the luxury sector in Hong Kong and Shanghai, Christophe Daine has revolutionized the Cantonese kitchen offered in Paris. His restaurant in rue du Sabot has made itself a name with simple principles: fresh, homemade food, discreet but efficient service, in a décor designed by Helen and Olivier Lempereur, with a semi-open kitchen, proving that there is nothing to hide. We enjoy the delicious dumplings with scallops or lobster and green apple. The dim sum open up the appetite, we continue with fried royal shrimps with salt, pepper and fresh herbs or a filet of steamed sea bass with soya sauce and crunchy vegetables. Duck with sauce hoisin, small mandarin crêpes, or the beef fillet with Taokan spicy sauce are also among the signature dishes. For the vegetable lovers: sautéed spinach and peanut sauce, or aubergines with sweet sour sauce are sure to delight. Let’s finish with steamed pearls of coconut, amazing chocolate nems or a tea “grand cru”… Special mention for the rare quality wine list.
The residents of the Rive Droite can rest assured: Christophe Daine has opened a second restaurant, with the same menu developed by the executive chef Tien-Dat Au, who never stops to revisit the flavours of the Middle Kingdom.
