A vegan’s guide to… Paris

France has never been seen as a top vegan destination, but in true Parisian style, veganism has emerged, understated and cool, permeating an entire district before anyone noticed. Maryanne Hall paid a visit…

The shift has been gradual, but it’s certainly not lacking passion, drive, creativity and variety. You can find an abundance of choices – cafés, restaurants, fine dining, junk food, health food, concept stores and even Veggie-Town, a whole area dedicated to meat-free living. I was able to eat my way around vegan Paris courtesy of France écotours, discovering the secret side of my favourite city – one of the most enjoyable holidays ever. Even the wonderfully friendly, shabby chic Zazie Hotel (3, rue de Chaligny 75012 Paris) where I stayed was ethically driven.

Where to eat

Le Faitout Restaurant (23, av Simon Bolivar 75019) A traditional French bistro with house wine, soft French bread, plates of charcuterie, cheese plates, melt in the mouth truffle dip… all vegan. Sophisticated-looking couples dining al fresco while family groups were inside creating charming, Gallic havoc. More surprisingly, conservative countrymen were drinking wine, smoking cigarettes and eating seitan steaks!

The restaurant was not originally vegan and owner, Olivier, didn’t want to lose the taste of traditional cuisine, so created seitan charcuteries and strong cheeses using a two month fermentation process. He initially had to give the food away free in order to entice people in.
