Vegan Food isn’t especially for those on a strict vegan diet. In fact, we all get to enjoy it. While I’m the first to admit that not all vegan food is created equal, there are actually places out there to making it edible and delicious. Vegan Paris is getting it right for the most part. I can’t watch a single Parisian video where my favorite vlogger doesn’t pop into Wild & the Moon or Hank Burger for a tasty, vegan meal. So here are 10 vegan restaurants in Paris that you must try.
1. Tien Hiang
Tien Hiang is located at 14 rue Bichat, 75010 Paris
When I’m feeling indecisive and not quite sure what I’m in the mood to eat, I know that I can never go wrong with asian cuisine. Noodles, rice, spring rolls, it doesn’t matter. It always hits the spot. Tien Hiang is a Vegan Paris fav because if you actually enjoy the taste of meat such as pork and duck (raises hand) then you can still have those flavors sans the meat. They have a variety of dumplings, bò bún, and even tofu dishes for those of us who need the protein.
2. Cafe Ginger
Cafe Ginger is located at 9 rue Jacques Coeur Metro Bastille, 75004 Paris France
Try to avoid this restaurant for lunch as it can feel quite cramped and will almost always be packed during that time of day. It’s the type of place where once you receive your plate, you can tell what each ingredient is, rather than it be some mystery non-meat patty that tastes like chicken but definitely isn’t. Customers rave about the salads of all things having different tastes and textures but Cafe Ginger does not skimp on the portion size either. Come with an appetite and expect to leave full.
3. Wild & the Moon
I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re already familiar with Wild & the Moon and have seen people with their infamous açaí bowls, smoothies and power shots, or even avocado toast. Sure it’s kind of a cliche “health food” place that you can find in cities such as DC or NYC, but this one’s in Paris…so there’s that. In any event, if you’re on the hunt for something quick, tasty, and filling, try this place out. I’d visit here for breakfast to start the day right but they also have great protein and veggie bowl options that will work at any time of day.
4. Bodhi Vegan
Bodhi Vegan is located at 23 Avenue Claude Vellefaux, 75010 Paris, France
Every now and then I crave something deliciously deep fried, like the tempura shrimp from Bodhi Vegan. This 100% vegan establishment specializes in asian and Vietnamese cuisine and you’ll be thinking about how mouthwatering the food is rather than the fact that watch you’re chomping on isn’t real shrimp. If you want to enjoy the flavor and texture of a non-vegan meal without the animal products, this is the place for you.
5. Hank Pizza
Hank Pizza is located at 18 Rue des Gravilliers, 75003 Paris, France
Pizza always has been and always will be one of my favorite dishes. It’s almost always tasty, filling, and depending on your toppings of choice, it never has to taste like the last pizza you ate. The best part is that there’s vegan cheese, which means that you can have cheese fries, and who doesn’t love a huge pile of fried potatoes, smothered in a creamy cheese sauce? Don’t lie. You love it.
6. Le Potager de Charlotte
Le Potager de Charlotte is located at 12 Rue de la Tour d’Auvergne, 75009 Paris, France
Le Potager de Charlotte is one of the few vegan restaurants that I’ve come across that gives me more fine dining vibes than anything else. I truly believe that places can focus on both decor and ambience while also focusing on the food, and this place has nailed it. Their chickpea and rice pancakes are a favorite and are available at both locations. Their drink list is even longer than the food menu with a selection of reds, whites, and beer. It’s my kind of place.
7. Cloud Cakes
Cloud Cakes is located at 6 Rue Mandar, 75002 Paris, France
Cloud Cakes should probably be located at the bottom of my Vegan Paris list due to the fact that it’s the place you go AFTER a good vegan meal. Or if you like to do things your way, you have your desert before dinner. You can visit Cloud Cakes for that Instagram worthy shot of treats you actually eat afterwards, or if you’re in the mood for a cafe and for some reason only crave americano’s when in Paris (also me).
8. Hank Burger
Hank Burger has several locations, one of which is located at 55 rue des Archives 75003 Paris
Hank Burger is the sister burger of the aforementioned Hank Pizza, and it’s equally delicious. Sometimes we just want a burger and fries, but the vegan version. This burger joint is a favorite for Vegan Paris. I personally love that the menu is limited. You have a few burger options, the choice of fries/wedges or coleslaw for a side, and then a few yummy desert possibilities. You truly can’t go wrong and aren’t bombarded with choices.
9. Super Vegan
Super Vegan is located at 118 Rue des Moines, 75017 Paris, France
Another thing that I tend to only eat when traveling is kebab. All kebab is not created equal and most of it looks suspect when I see it prepared, but I order it anyway. At least with the Super Kebab at Super Vegan, I don’t have to worry about how long it’s been sitting out or if it’s any good. My mouth is currently watering just looking at this photo but they also have vegan burritos on their menu. Keep in mind that this establishment doesn’t open until 6pm so prepare to go for dinner.
10. Le Tricycle Store
Le Tricycle Store is located at 51 Rue de Paradis, 75010 Paris, France
While I can’t explain the origin of Le Tricycle Store’s name, I can say that they have amazing vegan meals. It’s yet another place where once you get your plate, you can name the ingredients versus it being a guessing game of what’s what. Everyone raves about their vegan hot dogs, which is a great option for your children who may be picky eaters.
