Looking for vegetarian in Paris
My friend and I are going to Paris next Tuesday for a week. She is vegetarian, I am not. We would like to find a few affordable places to eat 40-60euros each that she and I can both find something suitable.I am thinking Italian, Morroccan and Indian will be our best bets. Any advice is appreciated!
I think Moroccan would be a good choice. I've been eating a lot at Chez Omar recently... in fact I just posted some pix and notes on my blog (www.annmah.net). I know it's touristy and a bit overpriced, but it's so lively and bustly, and I love the old-fashioned bistro setting. Their couscous is good, too.
Crêpes are another good suggestion. I recently ate at Le Petit Josselin (side note: it's next door to La Crêperie de Josselin -- they say they're the same "maison" -- does anyone know what the relation is?) It was a very buttery, creamy, cheesy, meal. Lots of vegetarian options as well. Meal for two (two crepes, 1 beer, 1 cider) was 27E.
here are some tips and suggested restaurants for vegetarians:
if you do a search you'll find a number of suggestions on this site as well (for example):
and a recent thread on moroccan and southeast asian:
Italian food in Paris is generally not great (or overpriced, imo). there are a number of southeast asian and chinese restaurants to pick from in addition to moroccan. crepe restaurants are a good bet (breizh cafe in the 3rd is my favorite). i have a vegetarian friend here and she's able to find something everywhere we eat, "french" restaurants included - but we usually call ahead to see if this is just going to be a salad, or if there are other options "sans viande"
