In the land of galettes and sausages, this vegetarian enclave with childish décor (school chairs, plastic platters, menthol-colored partitions) really makes you reconsider your carnivorous reflexes. Every day, sisters Flavie and Nathalie Durou write out their tasty propositions in Velleda marker on the tiled wall. For us, the day we went for lunch: a respectable okonomiyaki (a sort of Japanese pancake) striped with carrots, Chinese cabbage and roasted butternut squash, served with soba noodles; a serious wrap with crisp veggies and hummus – as part of the set menu with a soup (pumpkin, sweet potato…) or a juice (banana, pear, ginger…). And for all the gluttons out there, there are a few vegan desserts to choose from that are displayed in the window: a vegan chocolate pudding or a walnut-chocolate-sesame truffle. The house also sells extra produce, along with spicy The Grub Dealer sauces made by Devin Gibson, the house’s chef and barista. // A.Be.
