Respond to Review of My Kitch'n
by Tiggy

Review: This was the first vegan place I went to in Paris. My partner and I ate lunch here the afternoon we arrived (21/09/13). After having a tiny bit of trouble finding it - partly because of being new to the city and partly because it's in a kind of indoor marketplace among a lot of other food stalls - and disturbingly/ironically/strangely directly opposite a butcher's. The setup is very simple, with cute kitsch decor, retro posters and children's desks and chairs, complete with paper and crayons, presumably to create a playful or family-friendly atmosphere. The woman serving us and running the place was very friendly and helpful. The menu is very earthy. I ordered a mixed juice and a vege burger with fries. The burger came on a bed of beet greens, rather than a bun, which surprised me. It was OK, but if you're expecting a conventional burger, you're not going to get one, and to be honest, not being that enchanted by raw food, I wouldn't be in the mood for a burger like that too often. The chips were fine but again, not conventionally brown and crispy. The juice was a bit watery. I ordered a coffee and then realised they didn't serve soy products there, so no soy milk for me. The price was a tiny but high for what it was, perhaps around 10 euro for the burger - which was not huge - if I remember correctly, but I like the idea of this place - healthy, vegan, raw food served with a personal touch - and support it in that sense. If raw food is your thing, give it a visit.

In the desks there are books about animals; everything from Bambi to Nils Holgerson's Travels to a Sea Shepherd whale hunting tale; for children and grown-ups alike. Children like reading the books while the parents are eating, and the stage is set for grown-ups to nostalgically remember the love they had for animals in their childhood, when these books were their favorites (and the vinyl covers [not posters, but actual covers] = all their favorite songs back in the day). The 'fries' are homemade oven baked potato wedges, on purpose not browned or too crisped. I don't want to rant about raw food since you are not in to that, but please be careful with overcooked foods! Specially some starchy foods, like potatoes, as they produce hazardous compounds when heated too much (specifically acrylamide = a known carcinogen, found in Pringels, McDo fries, hash browns etc). You can refer to the European Union funded study HEATOX for more info on the subject. No soy milk but almond milk, brazil nut milk, oat milk = all possible... ;)
