Welcome to Matsuba, a Korean & Japanese Barbecue Restaurant, officially opened in December 2009 by enthusiasts of Asian cuisine.
The restaurant is located in Paris 19th District – Paris La Villette.
Matsuba proposes you the signature Korean BBQ but also other famous Korean and Japanese specialties.
The main Korean specialties
- The famous Korean barbecue where the guests prepare their own grilled meat slices (beef, duck or pork belly) and fresh vegetables.
- The bibimbap or Korean “mixed rice” is served in a heated stone bowl with warm white rice topped with fresh, sautéed and seasoned vegetables, fried egg, sliced meat (beef, prawn or even salmon), homemade bibimbap sauce & chili pepper paste. The Bibimbap is stirred together thoroughly just before eating
- Kimchi Chigae (김치찌개) also known as Kimchi stew or Kimchi soup is probably the most common way of consuming some aged Kimchi, a popular Korean comfort food.
Kimchi Chigae with some fatty pork meat
The fatty pork goes best with this soup. When the fat melts into the soup, it’s not just your ordinary Kimchi soup. It’s so comforting and irresistible!
Matsuba proposes other Korean or Japanese specialties: A great spot for dining or taking away!
Located opposite the City of Science and Industry and the City of Music, Matsuba welcomes both tourists or neighborhood residents and also office staff.
In addition, close to all conveniences (bus, subway, tram), the location is ideal: so, come and enjoy with simplicity of Korean specialties before or after a movie or a visit to the Cité des Sciences.
The interior designer, Michel Bender, produced the modern and sober framework. He has also worked for a long time as an independent architectural firm. Thanks to his talent, he made Matsuba a pleasant and convivial place.
Matsuba can accommodate 110 guests on the ground floor and the 2nd floor. It is open seven days a week, all year round.
