Walking by the Gothic Quarter can come in very handy to find interesting restaurants. One of these hidden treasures is the Japanese restaurant Matsuri, a nice and intimate place to enjoy creative food from Southeast Asia.
Established in 2003, it is run by a Brazilian of Japanese descent, a chef who is an expert in artfully combining ingredients to create nice explosions of flavours. We recommend their Makis, among them the California Maki (crab, mayonnaise, avocado and lettuce), Makis Special such as the Bare (Salmon Tartar, Spring Onions, Citric Fruits, Crunchy Tempura and Teriyaki Sauce), Sashimis, Sushis (try their aphrodisiac Tiger Eye with Salmon Spawn, Quail Eggs and Teriyaki Sauce) or Temakis are just a few of the menu options.
Other dishes include Mango and Shrimp Salad with Green Lime, Toasted Peanuts and Fresh Mint, Tom Yam Kung Soup (Shrimp, Shitake, Broccoli and Asparagus in Ginger Broth, Green Lime and Coriander) or Sake Niku (Sirloin Steak Cubes with Vegetables and Pineapple in Creamy Soy Sauce with Sake). If the restaurant, located on Regomir 1, is far from where you live, use their take-away service. A meal at Matsuri is about 20 EUR.
