VOUS NE PARLEZ PAS ANGLAIS ? ALLEZ A L\’ARTICLE EN FRANCAIS !
When I want to find a halal restaurant in Paris, I use the website Paris Halal that identifies a lot of restaurants according to their situation, their specialty and other criteria. For instance you can look for a restaurant in the 10th Arrondissement or a Korean halal restaurant. The website goes even further and shows whether the resturant has a prayer room, if it accepts credit cards, if it is halal certified and so on.
Each restaurant then has its personalized presentation with pictures, contact info, their website and the menu if they have an online one too. There are also the specialties of the restaurant, the reviews and a description of the place and food.
I\’ve chosen this restaurant because they offer an all-you-can-eat menu that had me salivating. The restaurant is big but way smaller than the usual all-you-can-eat Asian restaurants. It\’s friendly and clean (the restroom is clean too) and the decoration is basic.
When we came in, a waiter hurried to us and was always exceptionnally friendly and smily (he\’s standing in the picture). He seems to love his job and has been really efficient during our time in the restaurant. I really appreciated his manners and savoir-être.
The restaurant Dragon Wok is halal certified by AVS. Wow, an all-you-can-eat buffet where you can actually eating a bit of everything. I appreciated going to an all-you-can-eat and eating something other than shrimp and fish (Oh, I know I\’m not alone there !).
The all-you-can-eat buffet costs €19.90 from Monday evenings to Thursday evenings. You can choose absolutely everything that you like among the Korean barbecue, wok, maki and the entrées. Everything is brought to your table but the wok and the maki that you get up to choose.
For those of you who understand French, I\’ll publish the menu and the Conditions of the all-you-can-eat formula. In short, you can only choose this formula is everyone at the table chooses it because there\’s been much abuse (people sharing their formulas and so on). You are expected to know what you can and can\’t eat anymore and if there\’s abuse of the food and you waste it, you\’ll have to pay, for instance €8 for a spoilt dish or wok.
I started with chicken and shrimp nems. I loved the taste of the shrimp ones in which there were actual shrimp pieces and to this day I still drool over their thought.
I also chose several skewers : beef, beef and coriandre, lemongrass chicken and cheese and beef brochettes like the ones they serve in the sushi shops.
The beef skewers and beef and coriander skewers were identical except for some coriander leaves. I would have loved an actual coriander taste because I love it so much but I loved the taste of the meat !
I loved the beef and cheese brochettes. That was actual meat and hmmm… Love love love.
I\’m not a big fan of wok wherever I eat it. I think there\’s always too much gravy and the food is undercooked. However I loved the taste of the shrimp in this one and I only regret choosing a curry sauce whereas I don\’t really like it. Wtf, right ?
I didn\’t like the coconut milk and chicken Thai soup either and I left it almost untouched.
My opinion about the Dragon Wok restaurant
I think the food is amazing. I loved how the meat was cooked, the taste of the shrimp nems and the maki that I couldn\’t publish because I\’ve never taken the picture. They were in my stomach before I could say a work.
Just go there is my advice. Sure, €20 is a bit expensive but everything is halal and meat costs money. If you want to choose 12 times skewers, just do so. I can\’t wait until I go again ! Do not expect a large usual Asian buffet but just go with the menu I published !
