Vegetarian and Vegan food guides - Paris

(I think I ate about two avocados a day when we stayed in Paris!)

We went to Paris a few months ago and for me it was the first time in the city. I completely and utterly fell in love with the place and I'm so excited to go back with Tom for our honeymoon this weekend!

When ever we go away I leave the planning to Tom. I think that's why our relationship works well, he's the organiser and I'm more of a 'spur of the moment' type person. Whilst I am usually in charge or booking the travel once we get anywhere Tom will have researched the area for weeks before and checked out the places to explore. I'm fully prepared to admit that our trips away run so smoothly (so far) due to Tom's researched and this really comes into place when it comes to places to eat.


As you are probably aware myself and Wilf are vegetarians (Tom it sort of one by default and will very occasionally eat organic meat when eating out with his family). In the UK it's never really a problem eating out (although some places could have more exciting menu options if I'm honest) but in other countries it can sometimes be tricky picking places to eat. When we took our trip a few months ago I was so grateful that Tom has researched all the great veggie street food in each area so no matter where we were wondering about we always had a near by option to head to.

House Trip have recently launched a Vegan and Vegetarian food guide for three major cities (Paris, London and Berlin). Having browsed their Paris guide I'm now totally craving a vegan burger from Hank and I even found out Soya has a resident cat that sometimes joins you for your meal!

I think something like this is perfect for veggies and vegans on city breaks and I can't wait to see what other cities they add. It's even helped me discover some places to visit on my next trip to London. Are there any gems you think are missing?

My husband used to live in Paris, and back then there was only one vegetarian restaurant there! Its well worth a visit, the food is delicious. Its called Aquarius 40 rue de Gergovie, Plaisance-Pernety, 75014 Paris, France (Montparnasse).

I really could have done with this a few months ago! Oh well, just means we'll have to go again to try out all the new places we can go to now :) We did manage to find East Side Burgers while we were there though which I'd highly recommend. Thanks for sharing this!

What a wonderful idea. We ate somewhere in Paris... a very long, thin restaurant... I can't remember the name but it was nice to eat a proper meal. This was back in the early days of veganism, and I hadn't quite got it all figured out yet, so we mostly lived off weird plates of veg during that trip to Paris. Blah. x

Great idea - I remember going to Germany as a teen and barely eating the whole time I was there! p.s I love advocados :)

That sounds like such a good idea. I know it can be tricky finding places that serve gluten and dairy free food too. At least with vegan, half the battle would be won!

So useful! It's a shame how so many menus lack a vegan option - it's not that hard people!!! It always annoys me how little creativity goes into vegetarian dishes too (goats cheese & red onion tartlet any one? No, how about a halloumi burger?!!!!). These look great, i'm going to look up the London one!

That's a great idea. although I'm not vegan myself it sounds really useful and I'd still like to know where the best veggie restaurants are.

I can't wait to try this out on a trip to Paris soon....and to read your recommendations from your trip ;)

Great photos. I'm definitely going to use this when next in London. :-) x
