All of us have our certain go-to comfort foods, so it’s no surprise that being originally from Tokyo, whenever I’m on the road or in a different country, I found myself craving Japanese food. I grew up in California so I also often find myself longing for those generously-sized Mexican burritos, but that’s yet to be found here…Thankfully in the world-class city of Paris, there are a multitude of international options if you find yourself in the mood for something other than “typical” French cuisine. One of my favorite Japanese spots for a quick and tasty casual bite is Sanukiya. There are often long queues, so it’s a fantastic spot for travelers who are dining solo, since just like many of the other Japanese restaurants in Paris’ nearby Little Tokyo, there is counter seating and a lone diner can often beat the lines and quickly slip right on in for their meal. Another bonus about Sanukiya, is that they are open straight through lunch and dinner so if you have jet lag or just feel like dining at 15:30 or 3:30 p.m. non-military time, they will be open.
