Although we have eaten at New Paris Restaurant countless times, we have almost taken it for granted and never blogged about it. Well, better late than never. The most distinctive thing about New Paris Restaurant is the fact that they use layers of pink disposable plastic in place of table cloth and once your meal is done, the top-most layer of plastic gets wrapped up and disposed of.....an environmentalist's nightmare, really.
Deep-fried squid (RM7.00.....cheap!). We certainly were not eating very healthfully last night, what with all the deep fried stuff. But I can never come here without ordering this dish, my perennial favourite. Unlike most other restaurants, New Paris uses squid head with tentacles rather than the body (rings) to cook this dish. All the batter-coated tentacles become really crunchy and tasty after frying, and the batter has a hint of curry powder which makes it perfect. Again, this is eaten with a dash of (ok, I prefer drowning them in) sweet-sour chilli sauce.
Trying to compensate for our unhealthy diet......stir fried baby kailan with salted fish (RM7.00). Crunchy, crunchy, crunchy!
This restaurant rates as one of the most economical restaurants in town, and service is very fast and efficient. Though the restaurant may sometimes be very crowded, you can usually expect food to reach you in less than 10 minutes of ordering.
New Paris is located on the same row as Red Bliss Bridal Shop and a few shops away from Ah Tuan Ee Nyonya Restaurant.
