Chinatown Paris

A restaurant on the main street in Chinatown (Paris 13e), the Avenue de Choisy.

As most often in Chinatown, we were with our friends Anne and Rosa. We did not eat here, but in our usual favorite place (a bit less atmospheric, but excellent and inexpensive), which Anne introduced us to years ago. She is an American lawyer who has lived for over two decades in Paris, and Rosa is her daughter, adopted from China as a baby and now 15 years old. They both speak excellent French and English.

Edit: A bit less than a year later, in 2011, we again ate with the two of them in Chinatown--see them here.
