La Victoire Suprême du Coeur has gone vegan!  This is a big deal for Paris… now we have two vegan restaurants!

You used to have to request vegan versions of their dishes, but they have recently had an image makeover, new decor and a whole new menu that they call vege chic.

The new menu is a bit more chic: they have added tofoie gras to their repertoire for example. I hear they force feed a soy bean for weeks to make that: I will be avoiding it…

I had Transcouscous Goa (Tandoori seitan, tofu and couscous) : it was nice, but less filling than the main courses form the previous menu. I was also impressed by their Ravioles de légumes verts: the ravioli pasta had a real home-made look and taste. 

I have also recently visited their Sunday brunch buffet. Since it was a buffet, I checked in with the waiter to see if everything was vegan. He said yes. I asked “Even that big plate of croissants?” He said “Ah, la seule exception!” [they are brought in from a bakery.] After further discussion I learned that the kitchen is now totally animal-product-free [except honey that’s in one of the drinks on the menu.]

The buffet is about 20€, and had a tasty lasagne, plenty of salad and tapenades, soups, a mushroom loaf, a sliced raw vegetables dish, tofu, carrots, lentils etc. And a big table dedicated just to desserts. In fact, the buffet is probably 50% desserts: the chocolate tart is particularly worth trying.
