Organic produce and fast food don’t have to be mutually exclusive, as this laid back canteen slickly proves.
‘All our products are lovingly selected and organic. We only care about quality.’ Most trendy Parisian restaurants make such claims nowadays, but you can tell that at Nous they really stick by them. Specialising in ‘organic fast food’, the canteen offers three very tempting mains: the ‘Nous bowl’, which comprises rice, guacamole and a seasonal salad (when we go, red cabbage, carrot and sesame seeds), roasted chicken in a minty yoghurt sauce, and chilli meatballs (or veggie balls, if you’re that way inclined). Either way, the latter is a brilliant choice: the balls are fresh, beautifully seasoned and generously sized. The menu also features regulars the Nourrito (a burrito, €13) and the Nourger (you guessed it, a burger, €14), with its dreamily succulent meat, tangy BBQ sauce and a side of crispy golden fries. Even the drinks are organic: the juice of the day (apple, orange and ginger) is particularly refreshing, while menu also offers a host of natural wines.
