C.A.M. Import Export has inherited the name from the former business that occupied these premises near rue de Turbigo on the edge of the Marais in the 3rd arrondissement of Paris. This means they didn't have to change the name outside and they made minimal changes to the interior. Diners sit at small tables that are in close proximity to each other, but nobody minds because they are here for the interesting Asian food that is listed on the sparse menu.
In fact, the menus for both the food and the natural wine are tight with description sparse and the options limited. But we don't see this as a problem because every dish we were served was delicious.
At our recent dinner we had some exciting and flavoursome dishes prepared by talented chef Esu Lee (Esu has cooked in Sydney and in Hong Kong before moving to Paris to open this restaurant) with highlights being a sambal soup, trenchtown squid, gochujang XO tartare and monkfish with mussels.
The wine list is short, but it is easy to choose something interesting. On the night we were there there was a pet nat from Beaujolais by George Descombes, Les Alpes made from Gringet by master Savoie winemaker Dominique Belluard, Les Carteries by Christian Venier from Cheverny and a Bandol from Comor.
