Le Pas-Sage Obligé

This is what became of the Victoire Suprême du Coeur. Some of the team are the same as at the old vegetarian restaurant, and even a little bit of the food is the same.

Other parts of the team and recipes seem to be going strong at Saveurs Végét'halles, another location that the Victoire used to have. The Paris vegetarian scene is a little incestuous.

The big difference is that le Pas-Sagé Obligé also serves meat. On the plus side, you'll be able to eat here with dining partners reluctant to eat a meal without animals, on the downside, there's foie gras on the menu.


Pictured badly above is the main reason I like to eat at the Pas-Sage Obligé: the killer veggie burger. Atop half a muffin sit a big daub of home-made tapenade (mind the stones), a whacking great slab of really gorgeous seitan, and a hash brown. 

There are other vegan options too, but for me this is the finest veggie burger patty in Paris. If you're feeling really indulgent, start with the gorgeous, greasy onion bhajis too.

A word of warning: there's currently a tagine on the menu which is marked as vegan but also listed as containing honey...
