Down from Baton Rouge Pigalle feww days ago, we hoped in Momoka... For a unique experience of Japanese cuisine. We're not talking your usual suhis or Sashimis but the complete span of exquisite creation Japan can offer. Absolutly magnificent!

This is a Japanese restaurant with "attitude". There are two locations on the same street because it was very successful and needed to expand. The food is good but we found it to be "pretentious". We love Japanese food. We have travelled to Japan and...More

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
