Saveurs Veget'Halles, Paris France

Location: 41 Rue des Bourdonnais, 75001 Paris, France

Last time we were in Paris we ate at Saveur Veget'Halles and it was delicious. I was very excited to try it again on this visit. The menu however was very different and they did not have as many delicious sounding foods. I was a little disappointed, but we were hungry so we ate. We decided to get two Formule Menus - one with appetizer and main, one with main and dessert as there weren't many things that screamed try me. We tried the vegetable beignets for the starter. There were zucchini and carrots covered in a light batter. The vegetables were still crispy, the carrots sweet and the zucchini was good as well. The batter itself was just eh. It came with raisin chutney which was really sweet with a hint of cinnamon. I wasn't a fan of the chutney. This was good, but nothing special.

Our first main was the soy chicken. This was served with the sides that seem to come with everything. I love this as then I get lots of small things instead of just one dish with no sides. The soy chicken was good - nice and chewy. It came with a shallot sauce which I was not a fan of. It had this raspberry flavor which was just not good. This came with mashed potatoes which were a little salty and chunky which I also enjoy. Very tasty. The black rice was also good and had a nice flavor (maybe cooked in vegetable broth?). The lentils were super good - maybe also cooked in vegetable broth. I loved the sides.

We also tried the dish of the day. This came with the same delicious sides as the soy chicken, but also some tofu (not much flavor), and some fresh veggies (carrots, cabbage, beets - good but hard to eat).

For dessert we tried the Chocolate Banana Cake. This had banana in it and was hot and pretty tasty. Not the most amazing cake ever, but good.

Overall - This was not as amazing as our first visit. I really liked the sides, but overall I wasn't blow away. I didn't hate it, but I also didn't think man I will have to come back here next time we visit.
