French and gluten-free

In Strasbourg, there is this restaurant called “La Pause Quinoa” which offers gluten-free dishes. But then they did notice that lots of vegetarian people liked coming there so they decided to extend their menu with veggie options.

I went there and asked for vegan items and I treated myself with a crispy pizza with tapenade and onions. I also chose a creamy dessert with red fruits and pears. Amazing!

Lasagna verde

I was very pleased to have lunch at Le Potager du Marais in Paris – it was raining and I gratefully sat in this very cosy restaurant. The menu is 100% vegan and, I have to say, very tempting… so I went for the lasagna with spinach, which was the comforting food I really needed after 3 hours walking in the cold. It was tasty, warm and delicious. The salad was fresh with a perfect dressing.

The waiter was very friendly and I felt very welcomed. I’ll definitely come back!

 

All about love

I went for the weekend in Paris – I used to live there but I still enjoy visiting this wonderful city, full of lights and dirt. I went to “Le Pont des Arts”, always amazed by this amount of padlocks. Beautiful scenery but as you may know, this very old bridge is falling apart because of the weight.

Going to Paris means, to me, having a meal at Loving Hut in the 11th arrondissement. I love the place, the people and of course, the homemade and fresh vegan food. I was also pleased to see how packed it was on a saturday evening. Next time, I better book a table.

strasbourg break

Back to France for the weekend! It’s only a 2 hours journey by train so I met lots of German with bikes and backpacks ready to invade France for 2 days with me.

Strasbourg is definitely one those towns half-german and half-french – I visited the area called “La Petite France” just near the train station – lovely spot. Enjoy the pictures!
