After missing multiple reservations we finally made it to Kong, located in Paris, and were blown away by the delicious food and unique atmosphere. The restaurant is located in a trendy area of the city and has a chic, modern design with a hint of Asian influence. The menu features a mix of traditional French and Asian cuisine, and every dish we tried was absolutely delicious. The flavors were bold and well-balanced, and the presentation of each dish was truly stunning.
In addition to the fantastic food, the service at Kong was top-notch. Our server was knowledgeable, and attentive, and made sure our dining experience was truly memorable.
For appetizers, we started with the creamy risotto, which was true to the description and delivered a very rich and creamy perfectly crafted al dente texture. It was a great way to start the meal. We also tried the Kong plate, which featured a selection of small dishes including tuna tartare, edamame, and crispy chicken dumplings. It was a great way to sample a variety of flavors.
For our main course, we decided to go with the Waygu beef tataki, which was served with a truffled ponzu sauce. The beef was melt-in-your-mouth tender and the sauce added a nice depth of flavor. We also tried the veal chop, which was cooked to perfection and served with a delicious demi-glace. The scallops, which were seared and served with a creamy sauce, were also a standout.
Would You Try Any of These Dishes?
- Definitely!! (If someone bought my ticket)
- Not My Cup of Tea!
We decided to pair our main course with a few of Kong's signature cocktails. The Asian Porn Star was a refreshing blend of vodka, lychee, and mango, while the Hana was a fruity mix of gin, raspberry, and lemon. The Geisha, made with sake, lychee, and rose, was a bit sweeter, but still very enjoyable. We also tried the Fomu, a blend of rum, passionfruit, and lime, which was tangy and refreshing.
For dessert, we couldn't resist trying the 2000 feuilles "Pierre Herme Paris," a classic French pastry made with layers of flaky pastry and vanilla cream. It was rich and indulgent, the perfect way to end the meal.
Overall, I had a wonderful time at Kong Paris and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for delicious Asian-inspired cuisine and creative cocktails. The staff was friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was chic and trendy. I can't wait to go back and try more of their menu!
