Restaurants in Paris are officially open after months of covid19 closures. So, where does a vegan in Paris go first? To these 10 plant-based restaurants in Paris known as the city of lights and love.

1. Le Potager de Charlotte

By far one of Paris’ most renowned plant-based restaurants, this affordable and welcoming restaurant serves up not only delicious but innovative dishes. Where else can you get a rice and chickpea pancake covered in cashew-based, house-made heavy cream? Or einkorn risotto in garlic cream sauce? The flavors are so distinct you will come back for a second (or third) visit.

2. Cafe Ginger

Cafe Ginger has the best plant-based lunches in Paris. This restaurant serves ample portions of their daily tarte, lasagna, or summer roll, each served with plenty of fresh and lightly blanched vegetables on the side. It is known for its juices, desserts, and sweet potato fries. It is also known to be packed, so make a reservation in advance.

Oh my God, you have got to go to this all-plant patisserie that bakes everything from classic croissants, pies, and cheesecakes to sweet and savory tarts, and French-style, Instagram-worthy chocolate pastries. Their list of sweets is long, and they also serve up daily bread and fresh pizza slices.

4. La Palanche d’Aulac

La Palanche d’Aulac is the answer to your Vietnamese food needs in Paris! This intimate restaurant has everything from summer and spring rolls to vegan beef dishes to soups and salads. We tried the crunchy banana flower salad and a hearty Tom Kha Gai noodle soup. The fresh mint, basil, and bean sprouts made this coconut-based soup perfect.

5. Jah Jah By Le Tricycle

Looking for a good vibe, and good bites? Look no further than Jah Jah By Le Tricycle. This Rasta-influenced, Caribbean-style resto has a limited but fresh selection of rice and beans, slaw, burgers, hotdogs, and cauliflower-based ‘wings’. The sweet potato fries are crispy and hot, but make sure to leave room for the desserts!

6. So Nat

Need a bowl? So, Nat got a bowl. This women-run business has three small restaurants that serve up three delicious bowls, and we mean delicious. There are the crispy vermicelli quinoa and fried parsley options, nérone rice, and tofu, or the semolina noodle with cinnamon and fennel. These have such unique flavors, you will keep coming back for more. Daily fresh soups and salads are also available.

7. Hank Pizza

Hank Pizza answers your pizza hankering in Paris. This place serves up a select menu of pizza to guarantee quality, and it works. La Montagnard has melted cheese, potato, mushroom, and red onion, and Le Dandy is topped with truffle creamy sauce, mushroom, spinach, and roasted hazelnuts. What could be better? Well, the crust – it is homemade and crisp, in the classic Roman style.

8. Hank Burger

While we are at it, let us head over to one of the Hank Burgers. These whopping burgers are made in-house of tofu, mushroom, rice, cereals, and secret spices. The La Rockeuse is topped with fig sauce and cheese – a superb combo. Gluten-free buns are available at additional cost.

9. Season Square

Like Hank Burger, Season Square is an expert in creating unpretentious, plant-based burgers that would satisfy meat-eaters and non-meat eaters alike. The DÖNER is to die for with its tasty lemon-mint mayonnaise. Do not forget your side of crispy, hot fries that are some of the best in Paris.

10. Sol Semilla

Being last on the list does not make Sol Semilla the least important. This Indian-Asian fusion restaurant serves ample portions of pureed sweet potato, legumes, finely seasoned rice, and salad plates. The soups are in big portions and the cream vegetable is simply so good and filling. Sol Semilla’s desserts are nothing less than what you would expect in Paris.
