Respond to Review of CLOSED: Pousse-Pousse
Review: We had lunch at Pousse Pousse on our last day in Paris. It wasn't high on our list of places to try but that turned out to be a mistake! I would definitely recomment a visit if you are interested in vegan food that is both tasty and healthy. We definitely came away feeling we had treated our taste buds and our bodies. (For me the best vegan food pleases both . . .) I went with my partner and we basically tasted almost everything on the menu (which changes daily). We had juices made to order. (We requested a few ingredients and asked the owner to "create" a juice based on these choices.) We also had two (warm) soups, two entrees (raw but with some cooked grains) and two raw desserts. Everything was delicious and there is a genuine concern for balancing taste and pleasure with the nutritional qualities of the food. As some other reviews have mentioned, I did find the salad that came with the meal uninspired, which was a bit of a surprise based on the overall quality of the food. It was basically an iceberg lettuce salad with a few sprouts and a rather heavy vinaigrette. I expected something with more texture, colour and flavour, based on the other food here. Still the ambience created by the owner makes this my recommendation for the "must-do" lunch for a vegan in paris if you can afford it. (Our lunch was 55 Euros and very filling . . . but you could get away with much less.) Also, the dehydrated raw crackers that came with the soup were the best I've had anywhere!
