Homey comfort food
Posted on 09 / 21 / 2012
It's my last day in Paris and I was happy there is a veggie place just around the corner where I am staying. I actually thought if it comes to vegetarian/ vegan places, they'd be far off (e.g. Place de la Bastille has many around but it's a 38minute ride on the métro), so I was glad to discover Joy in Food on Montmartre.
I got the plat du jour, which was vegan, and very yummy. It consisted of different grains, rice, a small raw carrot salad, a potato-patty, a little ratatouille and a few other cooked vegetables.
It wasn't special, yet very filling and overall comforting. I liked that it was organic and seasonal, so I can't complain.
In fact, I wish we had such places in Berlin. Where you can get comfy homecooked food, we either have fancy (vegan) restaurants or fast food places, but if you want something easy, it's not there.
So, I'm glad these places exist in Paris as, narrowing it down, their dishes would be what I would make myself (or similar). It's good to know that you can continue your cruel-free and healthy diet even when you're staying in Paris, so all is good.
Although the dish was a little bland and I missed more possibilities of seasoning than gomasio, salt and pepper, it was all in all a good lunch.
healthy , organic, comforting homemade-style
few vegan options, a little bland
