The city of Paris is known both for it’s fabulous sites and attractions and it’s amazing gastronomy. However, those of us that prefer a vegan diet may find it harder to find delicious food that is suitable in every eatery. In fact, many people like to plan their days around popular vegan haunts and the attractions that are closest to them for convenience, something you can find a detailed example of below.
Most folks that take a trip to Paris, either travel there from other regions of France as part of a break or stay for a few days. What this means is that they need suitable accommodation as well as a sightseeing plan.
Happily, there are some options that will suit those with a commitment to the vegan lifestyle. The first one is to track down an establishment like the Hidden Hotel on Rue de l’Arc de Triomphe. With it’s central location close to the Arc de Triomphe it is hugely convenient, and the vegan food on offer including the breakfast is first-rate.
Another option for accommodation that is vegan-friendly while in the city is to pick something like these Paris apartments that you can rent by the night. Leasing an entire apartment means that not only do you have the freedom to cook whatever you like following your vegan diet, but you are not limited as to when you eat or return home either.
Next let’s take a peek at some of the best places to refuel as a vegan in the city, and the attraction that they are closest to. Something that will help you plans your days during your break.
First, we have Grand Appetit on Rue de la Cerisaie. Ask the owner for the vegan plate de jour, and you won’t be disappointed. It’s close to INSIDR Paris and the Pantheon too, a spectacular church in the ancient Greek style that is now dedicated to the memory of many famous French people.
Then there is Le Grenier De Notre Dame. Unsurprisingly this place is close to the famous cathedral, as well as a Gothic prison known as the Concierge and the beautiful site of Sainte-Chapelle. Expect a vegan and macrobiotic twist on everyday dishes in this restaurant.
If you are looking for some Asian cuisine that is strictly vegan why not visit the well-loved Tien Hang on Rue Bichat. It’s close to Art Studio K, and not too far from the Saint Michel Fountain which is a short trot over the river, making it a good spot to stop at before or after a walk around the city for a bowl of delicious rice and veggies.
Lastly, we could not fail to mention Veggie Town as run by the French Vegetarian Society. You can find this at 9th arrondissement, and there are 26 vegetarian and vegan restaurants there to choose from.
Pick porridge at Bol Porridge Bar, Bagels at Bagel Families and some tasty Indian street food at Paris Naan among other treats. Then head over to the spectacular steps of the Sacré-Cœur, or take a short jaunt to the Le Mur Des Je T’aime to see the love memorial.
