Respond to Review of Cafe Ginger
by Joanna Dubois
Review: As a long-time vegan, until now eating out in Paris was a bit of a challenge. Not anymore. Totally by chance I discovered the newly-opened Ginger Cafe and it really is vegan heaven. It is run by a most simpatico young couple: he's English, she's Latin-American. She does the cooking (with organic ingredients), he runs the show. Although it's not 100% vegan, the choice of vegan dishes is both imaginative and very tasty (which in my experience is often not the case in vegetarian restaurants, where vegans seem to be considered the poor relations). I had a watercress soup, which tasted even better than my own soups, even though I've been called "The Queen of Soups" by (non veggie)friends. Served with the best bread I've tasted in Paris.Then I had a mushroom and sweet potato quiche, which was served with a lovely, imaginative salad.By then I was full, so I took the apple tart as a take-away for later. The whole lot came to € 17. At the moment, they're only open from 9h30 till 18.00 Tues-Sun. since they've got a young child. But check with them before you go, since they are planning to extend opening hours. Another thing I am very pleased with is that they don't use microwaves.
