Like everywhere, it seems, the sushi trend has caught on and looks like it's here to stay - or is it ? After tasting some of the most delightful mouthfuls bursting with all sorts of savours at Paris' Yoom dim sum restaurant on rue des Martyrs, we weren't so sure about how the sushi trend's going to survive after this dim sum catches on.
Not yet a widely-spread trend in Paris, Yoom's packed tables at lunch like at dinner, tells us it won't be long before we're longing for a taste of Asia without a slice of raw fish in sight. Yoom is a cosy little restaurant with trompe l'oeuil grey brick walls, veneered wenge stained square tables, but colourful finishing touches are just enough to prevent this little eatery from falling into the kitsch category. The service is quick and friendly, with unusually humane and friendly staff - rare in Paris, as most frequent visitors will know.
From the hargau dim sum to the wonton soup, topped off with a little Yoom sauce and chilli, it's the perfect and light way to end the day.
