Vegetarian Paris

October 30th, 2008 Posted in food and drink

Being a vegetarian in France isn’t easy. I have a couple of hardcore (ex-)vegetarian friends who moved to France and have moved back to the dark side. Its more understandable when you realise the almost complete lack of understanding of vegetarianism amongst the local population. Asking for a vegetable salad “sans viande” will often result in a chicken salad, as apparently chicken isn’t meat in the french sense of the word. Vegetarian salad with bacon is another common dish, and when asking for the version ‘sans bacon’ the salad will return with the bacon bits (mostly) picked out by hand.

So it’s good to know that there are more and more vegetarian restaurants appearing in Paris, here are a couple of vegetarian resources I’ve found recently:

I also discovered, a vegetarian search engine which gives interesting results, and has a greate recipe search feature.
