Time Out says
It’s not the most beautiful or chic location – a purple-painted frontage on an indifferent street behind the tiresome Les Halles shopping centre – but once inside Saveurs Veget’Halles you’re enveloped in a comforting fug of delicious cooking smells and the feeling of being in a valued, homely local joint. The long, narrow dining room with its plain walls and serviceable furniture is decorated with trays of live plants, but you’re mainly here for the solid vegetarian and vegan cooking – there’s a substantial wipe-clean menu covering everything from mezze and salads to soya kebabs and tofu, but your best bet is the fresh, generous daily specials from the rotating chalk board; we had bright bowls of smooth homemade pumpkin soup crowned with a froth of peppery fresh beansprouts, then a hefty portion of vegetarian lasagne and salad, and a very successful mushroom loaf with bulgur, chickpeas and a pot of sweet fruit compote – firm, juicy and incredibly generous at €12.90 for the set starter and main (you can also go €15.90 for three courses). Filling, healthy and delicious – we’ll be back, and might even try the gluten free and organic wines.
