On my first day in Paris, my original plan was to have some delicious French bistro food for dinner, but the places I had in mind didn’t open until 7 pm, and I was hungry as a wolf. So, I ended up having an early dinner at a cozy Korean restaurant, Little Seoul, which I found inside Passage de Choiseul.
The restaurant was about to close, but I think the Korean woman working there could see, how much I was craving a bowl of hot kimchi-jjigae, because she gestured for me to come in and sit down. Kimchi-jjigae is a typical Korean stew made with kimchi, tofu, and pork. It’s a delicious and filling dish, especially on colder days, and it was exactly what I was in the mood for. It didn’t take long before the sizzling hot bowl arrived on my table, along with a bowl of rice and three small side dishes, and I was so hungry that I finished it all.
Even though I arrived just before closing time, there were several other guests in the restaurant, and people kept coming by to pick up take-out orders. It’s a really cozy little place to enjoy authentic Korean food during daytime, and a great place for lunch or early dinner, if you are in that part of town.
