Traveling to Paris is synonymous with eating well, after all, the city has several incredible restaurants for all tastes. Before I became a vegetarian, I didn’t care so much about the menu options, however, now that I have a more “restricted” diet, I need to know if the place will have good dishes without any meat.
Soon Paulo and I will return to Paris and we have already started to choose some of the vegetarian and vegan restaurants we would like to go to. I made a selection with some of the most recommended and I will share with you what they are!
Charlotte vegetable garden
Charlotte’s Le Potager menu is all vegetable-based. Chefs David and Adrien try to bring the best of the simplest ingredients, creating delicious dishes, such as chickpea and rice pancakes with cashew cream and quinoa, accompanied with pomegranate.
If you want to have breakfast in a different place, the place is also a good alternative. They offer a super complete menu, with pancakes, granola, hummus, fruits and even cakes and chocolate cream.
Being one of the favorite restaurants for most vegetarians in the city, Soya is always full. It has been around for over 10 years and even today their menu can be surprising. Another attraction of the place is the fact that they work with various seasonal products, which makes the dishes even more fresh and tasty.
Some of the dishes that are always among the most requested are vegan lasagna and curry with seasonal vegetables. The desserts of the place are also great. The most requested of them is the chocolate mousse with tofu!
The Tricycle Store
The restaurant at Le Tricycle Store is quite small, because at first it was just a street cart for vegetarian fast food. The store is especially known for its vegan hot dogs and is much healthier than what we are used to.
After the success of the carts, they opened a physical store and expanded the menu. If you want good soup, vegan sushi or a salad, this place is ideal for you. Besides, it’s not every day that we can try a special hot dog like that, right?
In addition to the atmosphere being super charming, Sol Semilla has an all organic and gluten free menu. As their focus is on a lighter meal, don’t expect over-elaborated dishes or that will sustain you for a whole day, okay? Among the dishes on the menu are a vegetable soup (which varies according to the day) with fresh herbs and seasonal fruit and vegetable crudités, accompanied with a salad. Everything simple, tasty and healthy 🙂
Like Sol Semilla, Ima specializes in salads and bowls full of different flavors and textures. Some of the restaurant’s best-known dishes are inspired by Israeli cuisine, so expect a delicious sweet potato falafel. Roasted potatoes with harissa sauce and a variety of salads are also always a favorite with customers.
The decor of the place is super cute, which makes the experience even more pleasant. The brick walls and the light wooden tables leave the place with a very cozy face. There’s nothing better than eating good food and being in a beautiful environment, right?
Gentle Gourmet has a more classic and elegant style, as do the dishes on the menu. The ingredients used by the chef are almost all seasonal, so the menu can change according to the season you are in.
On the spring menu, for example, one of the main dishes is tagliatelle with cream of asparagus and mushrooms sealed in port wine. Another incredible option are caramelized portobello mushrooms and roasted with lemongrass and cilantro. Almost all the dishes are very creative and with not so obvious combinations, leaving aside the traditional salad as the main element.
Only the decoration of Abattoir Végétal has won over anyone. The plants around the entire restaurant and the clean decor, with a few touches of metal, make the place super cozy and modern. The dishes also have touches of originality that make vegetarian and vegan food even more tasty.
The menu is very diverse: you can choose between a simpler dish, like a vegetarian hamburger, or a more elaborate one, like rice with lentils, avocado cream, roasted chickpeas and seasonal vegetables. Their brunch is also wonderful and a good option for those who wake up later.
There’s a bit of everything for Paris, right? Complete salads, vegan fast food, more elaborate dishes… Now you just have to choose which places you want to go and enjoy delicious food. If you know other good vegetarian restaurants there, be sure to comment below 😉
