Japanese Restaurant of Paris

Japanese tourists flock in droves to the area around the Opera, and the result is that there are lots of Japanese restaurants in the side streets running off the avenue de l’Opera from the Opera itself down to the Palais Royal. A favorite of French friends is Kadoya, 28, rue Sainte-Anne, Paris 1. Metro: Pyramides (Lines 7, 14). (Tel: +33 (0)1 49 26 09 82). This clean, modestly priced restaurant has a large selection of cooked dishes. I can recommend the . Kadoya does not serve sushi and other raw fish dishes, and I might suggest that as a general rule, you avoid eating uncooked food – whether seafood or steak tartare while traveling.

Their nests are in deep burrows, which they either excavate themselves or borrow from rabbits, while the one egg laid is nearly white with a few greyish spots. This takes about 42 days to incubate, but the chick doe not fledge for a further 49 or 50 days. After around the 40th day, the young bird is entirely deserted and its parents retire to the open sea to begin their autumn moult of body feathers. The chick will remain in the burrow for a further week, during which time the last of its soft down disappears and its full flight plumage is completed. Then hunger and nature drive it out of the burrow to make its first flight out to sea, which is always at night, reducing the risk of attack by predatory gulls. The parent birds take no interest whatsoever in their newly-fledged youngsters and they in turn do not acknowledge their parents. The burrows where the puffin chicks live all their young lives are usually so dark that the birds recognise each other by voice alone and seldom, if ever, see one another. Puffins dive to great depths in search of their main diet of sand eels and the huge parrot-like bill can hold as many as 30 fish at one time. They are seriously harassed by gulls when returning with food for their chicks, but the worst threat is from the great black-backed gull, which attacks puffins in flight and swallows them whole. The puffin’s only avenue of escape is by diving under water, where the gulls cannot reach them.
