Fans of homestyle Korean cooking should make a beeline to L’Arbre De Sel, a tiny family-run gem in a quiet corner of Paris’ 15th arrondissement behind Montparnasse. At lunchtime you can take a “menu bamboo” for €9.50 and enjoy two mini potstickers followed a profusion of tiny potted plants and clusters of gossamer lights strung from the walls—reflect the whimsical character of the owner, who welcomes all guests like his own family.
L’Arbre De Sel 138 Rue de Vaugirard 75015. Tel.: 01-47-83-29-52. Metro: Falguière
