Today marks the start of the Chinese New Year festivities, which will last for the next 15 days in celebration of the Year of the Pig. There is no better place to party than Chinatown down in the 13th arrondisement. The lanterns are up, the streets are crowded, and the restaurants are packed!
Best meal: Head to Le Bambou (70 rue Baudricout) for authentic Vietnamese. Tonight the place was packed, reservations required, and our party of 10 people had a very fun time for very little money. Try the Ba Bon, the egg rolls, and the beef soup…and wash it down with TshingTao beer. This is a jewel of Chinatown! Tel: 01-45-70-91-75
