After a couple of days in Paris, the kids (aged 8 and 4) had eaten enough ham and cheese baguette to last them a lifetime and wanted something different. We stumbled across Planet Sushi near our apartment and, being sushi-loving children, decided to give it a try.
Attracted by the pink decor, thumping tunes and familiarity of a sushi train, they decided to choose three plates each and watched eagerly as an assortment of maki cruised by. Their favourites were on the menu - avocado maki and cucumber maki. They also tried some with cream cheese, which was a new 'sushi' taste sensation, and washed it down with peach-flavoured iced tea.
I choose from the 'slim' menu - makislim and redslim. The makislim was maki made with rice paper rather than seaweed wrapped around lettuce and salad, with a variety of other fillings including tomato and mozzarella. Delicious! The redslim was maki make with rice paper wrapped around red cabbage and various fillings. I also enjoyed the green rolls, which were prawn/salmon/tuna wrapped in rice and rolled in fresh dill.
While this restaurant is far from authentic sushi, the food was tasty, light (in calories) and affordable. There was also a selection of salad plates and desserts, most made with nutella. And of course there were the usual sashimi and sushi plates you'd expect from a sushi train.
After days of dense French cuisine, Planet Sushi offered a much-welcomed alternative with a myriad of child-friendly options. The service was fairly ordinary but there was a clean toilet.
Plates ranged in price from 2.50-6.50 euro. The children miraculously chose the cheapest plates while some of mine were 3.50 euro. Total bill was around 30 euro both times we visited, which was cheaper than any of the half-eaten meals we purchased in cafes and brasseries.
