I’ve been slacking on my Paris tour of vegetarian restaurants, so yesterday I decided it was time to get back on my game.
After meeting up with my friend Jen at Paris III (one of the many universities in Paris), located in the 5th arrondissement, we headed out to a vegetarian restaurant close by that I’d heard about, but had yet to discover.
It being Friday and the end of a very hard week, we both decided we were in the mood for comfort food.
And what does comfort food mean to us?
TEMPEH. SEAWEED. BROWN RICE. TOFU. VEGGIES. QUINOA. GREEN TEA.
You can keep your fried chicken and mashed potatoes, thanks anyways.
I wish I took this picture, but I didn’t. I was too focused on taking pictures of the food!
There are tons of things on the menu that interested me: Miso soup, brown rice, seaweed, tempeh, tofu (I’m just basically repeating the list from above). All really good, yummy-looking things.
And I didn’t even get to the dessert menu!
Jen and I both opted for the tempeh plate, which came with brown rice, quinoa, gingered-tempeh (DELISH), and a side salad.
Sorry for the food mess. But it was better that way.
The menu was a little pricy– 15 Euros for each of our meals– but it was well worth it for the quantity and quality of what we ate.
Don’t expect anything fancy… it’s a simple restaurant in a neat area. But it gets the job done (I’ve definitely used this phrase before in the same context) and definitely serves up a delicious meal.
Next order of business: returning for dessert!
Les Cinq Saveurs d’Anada, rue Cardinal Lemoine, 75005. Métro Cardinal Lemoine.
Afterwards, we saw the movie 50/50. It is not, contrary to what you might think, called “Cinquante/Cinquante” in France. They still call it “Fifty/Fifty.” But man, what a great movie. Impeccably done, and I’m not even sure how they pulled it off with the subject matter.
