When I mentioned to Alex that I wanted to try and eat in ‘vegan only’ restaurants during our trip to Paris last week, I could see the sadness in his eyes! We bloody love French restaurants, but since eating more of a plant-based diet things just became that little bit more tricky on our trips away. Searching for good vegan food in Paris never used to be such an easy task, but luckily for us, Parisians seem to have adapted pretty well now, and there is so much more to choose from.
We tried three different places while we were away this time, and all of them were pretty darn good. Naturally, we went straight in for the junk food and Hank Vegan Burger was our first port of call.
This picture probably isn’t suitable for a sales pitch (It’s quite a task to make a lot of vegan food look pretty!), but the vegan burgers at Hank, might possibly be one of the best we’ve tasted so far. The texture was just right, service was swift, staff were friendly, and the vegan mayonnaise was something special indeed.
Up next on our list was Le Potager Du Marais. A more pricey affair, this restaurant had its quirks. Service was quite slow and a little odd, even though there weren’t many lunchtime customers, but the food came out quite quickly once ordered. Alex opted for the Quinoa Burger, and I went for the Spinach and Walnut Lasagne. Both were delicious. I’d definitely go back for more.
On our last day, we ventured to Las Vegans. In all honesty, I was mainly here for the doughnuts, but being lunchtime, we also decided to take a pit stop and try and start with something a little more healthy! Las Vegans is a popular place, and mainly for its snack foods. With just a little seating outside, I imagine it’s best to take away and enjoy your food in a park somewhere. Both of our dishes were superb and really filling…
…Of course, we saved a little space for these blighters. I’m not kidding you when I say that, vegan or not, you need to try one of their banana and caramel doughnuts at some point in your life! The chocolate one was a little dense for my liking but still packed a punch with the taste.
I’m looking forward to heading back to Paris soon to try out more of its vegan offerings in different areas, that’s for sure.
Until next time x
