Momoka 24, a Japanese delight in Paris.

Momoka 24 delivers mouthwatering dishes of absolute umami. The restaurant is located in the famous Pigalle area, yet in a quieter, unimposing street without any fanfare. Just as well, because such an experience is to be savoured without the hustle and bustle of Paris.

Chef Masayo shows respect for the food she and her team prepare which simply tantalises. The fresh ingredients, flavours and attention to detail are superb, impactful and accurate, respectively.
