The vegan takeover continues with this charming, healthy eatery.
Veganism has accrued a large Parisian following over the past few years as the general public become increasingly aware of the effects their culinary choices have on the world. Surfing in on this new culinary wave comes vegan eatery Le Potager de Charlotte, opened in October 2015. Here, everything from produce-sourcing to presentation is designed to reduce damage to the planet, while also doing good to your body. Avocado, turmeric, chickpeas, rice, sunflower seeds, aubergine, tomato, courgette, quinoa, cucumber, pomegranate, marinated tempeh (soy), melon, smoked paprika… the list of first-class ingredients goes on.
The combinations of colours, shapes, textures and flavours are truly impressive, as is the subtlety of their transformations. The creativity of each dish is so delightful that we take pleasure in identifying and analysing each diverse ingredient. Strangely we find ourselves feeling more intelligent, more aware of what it is we’re eating, and therefore more responsible.
Obviously, the freshness (and rarity) of the produce and all the kitchen work involved come at a price – the restaurant’s only drawback. The set menu costs about €28; still, it’s still worth it, considering the prices à la carte are around €8 for starters, €15 for a main and €8 for dessert. If you’re looking to eat healthily and well, lunch or dinner, this is a great vegan option.
