Paris has already started to follow the vegan trend and the possibilities to eat vegan here are greater than ever. We have chosen, just for you, my dear vegan friends, a list of 19 vegan restaurants among the best in Paris.
As a reminder: veganism is a specific diet that solely encompasses fruits and vegetables. Not only do vegans reject meat, fish and seafood, but they will also deny dairy products, eggs, and any other foodstuffs with an animal origin, such as honey for example. Very often, a vegan person doesn’t limit him or herself to consuming products and turns to veganism. Veganism is, above all, a way of life and a consumption pattern which tries to exclude animal exploitation, suffering, and brutality, whether for feeding, dressing and so on. The key concept of veganism is based on going against animal exploitation.
1) 42 Degres €€
109 rue du Faubourg Poissonnière, 75009 Paris
This bistronomic restaurant provides 100% “Raw Food” cuisine.
What is “Raw Food” cuisine, you may ask?
It is a way of cooking raw and dried foods to preserve all present nutrients, vitamins and enzymes, all of which are damaged when the temperature is higher than 42° C, hence the restaurant’s name.
Naturally, all dishes are gluten-free and vegans often like the smoked pepper parsnip parmentier, the marinated mushrooms accompanied by baby vegetables or the pickled legume toast and chervil crème.
Menus vary from 34€ to 85€
Lunch Formulas are at 16€ and 20€ – Brunch formula is at 33€
What we like: a compelling and innovative “Raw Food” experience. Lunch time meals affordable.
