Do it in Paris # 6: Rue Sainte Anne

.Normally, there is one and only one place for all your asian food cravings in Paris: Rue Sainte Anne. This street answers to your every need, from sushi, passing from all things Thay, going to Vietnamese, or to Chinese, or udon, or noodles, or teppanyaki, omuraisu and ramen. Personally, I'm a huge fan of ramen. (yeah I am used to having sushi once a week as there is this cutest super cheap and super yummy place right next to where I work :D)
.If you have no idea what ramen is, then you probably are not a diehard Naruto or Ranma fan (which I am sure is the case, as apparently I am the only nerd around here). Well you can make yourself an idea here:
.If you still have no idea what that thing is, then here's the experts' answer:
It is a Japanese noodle dish. It consists of Chinese-style wheat noodles served in a meat- or fish-basedbroth, often flavored with soy sauce or miso, and uses toppings such as sliced pork (チャーシュー chāshū?), dried seaweed (海苔 nori?),kamabokogreen onions, and occasionally corn. (why thank you Wikipedia)

.In Paris, if you ask around, they'll tell you that the one good place to have ramen is Higuma. Quite literally the best ramen in town. I am sure that if they combined design to their delicious dishes, then you'd find yourself waiting in line for hours instead that for a normal 25-40 minutes (normal in Paris, not normal in Brussels or in Padova -.-) They also offer menus with a number of gyoza (a sort of ravioli, and once again, Higuma's ravioli rock my socks) and then the ramen or dish of your choice. 
.My favourite thing to order is shoyou ramen.
