….or should I say “Numéro 22 et une biere”?
Thanks to Gourmetpilot Joerg Lehmann I am proud to present the first international Number 22 and a beer. It comes from the gastronomic city of cities: Paris. Yes, the one in France. Really.
Joerg is an internationally known food photographer (and many other things besides food, to be exact) and I am proud to have worked with him in the past. Considering his penchant for all things Asian, especially Japanese, I am certain to have a very trustworthy Number 22 and a beer here for our consideration. The photo, regrettably, does not meet our exacting standards, being somewhat too much in focus and well composed. But it will have to do.

Usually being a wine drinker, I had my first beer in 2009 here. The Number 22 I sampled consisted of sauteed shrimp, rice, misosoup and a small salad. There beer was a japanese brew, Yebisu. All in all very good.
Ebisu is a slightly fusiony asian restaurant, a little chinese, a litle vietnamese, the chef speaks japanese as do most of the guests. The place is usually packed, especially for lunch and most dishes can be had for a measly sum (by Parisian standards): between 11 and 15 Euros.
