Breaking news: a new vegetarian restaurant has opened in Paris. Kitchen is from the same owner as Bob’s Juice Bar and has a lot in common. They are both easy-going veg breakfast and lunch places with interesting options for Vegans. Among cool décor and communal tables, you can enjoy the daily soup, a great green or fruity smoothie, raw Conscious Chocolates, the açai bowl and more.

I was especially pleased to see that you can get a coconut with a straw, which is a rare pleasure to find in central Paris.

The prices are reasonable, and they have some good takeaway items, like the delicious ‘sushi’ style roll that I picked up.

Arugula is pretty easy to come by here in Paris. And I think at 14€ a kilo even President Obama would approve! I paid 78 centimes for the organic arugula in this recipe.

Arugula is an excellent source of antioxidants, rich in vitamins A and C, folic acid, calcium, manganese, and magnesium. It contains carotenes and chlorophyll and is also a very good source of potassium, iron, zinc, riboflavin, and copper.

I love the flavor of this soup and call me lazy but it’s nice to have a break from chewing!

Le Pain Quotidien

I had a nice salad for lunch today at Le Pain Quotidien in the 4th. There are lots of salads in Paris, which is great: nothing wrong with that. They’re green and one of the best things you can eat, alive with wonderful chlorophyll.

This charming Belgian café chain has locations all over the world, five of which are right here in the center of Paris. It’s by no means a vegan restaurant, but I appreciate so much the acknowledgment of putting a carrot symbol next to the vegan options. They have three salads, vegan soup everyday, a fruit salad and of course their wonderful organic, whole wheat pain au levain [sourdough bread.]

Sitting in the charmingly decorated location that they have in the Marais around the big communal table, we had a warming bowl of potimarron [chestnut-flavored squash] soup and two nice salads: one with artichokes and beans, the other with tofu and three tasty sauces. The tofu might have benefited from being marinated but it was still an impressive and satisfying salad. Just look at the photo I took!

PROS: Openly vegan friendly, organic, multiple locations, sells nice oils, spreads etc.

CONS: No vegan desserts.
