I had a great lunch at 42 Degrés, an all vegan/raw/organic restaurant not far from Gare du Nord Station.
It’s a small, modern place with an elegant raw kitchen and a welcoming atmosphere. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and skilled English speakers. The first thing they did was ask if we understood the concept and were ready to explain it all.
It was quite busy when we got there but we were able to get a table and leaf through the appetizing menu, which is small but they have specials and I wanted to get everything!
In the end, we went for:
- the special of the day which was a Mexican layered salad with tomatoes, guacamole, delicious nut cheese and fresh corn, topped with greens
- caesar salad with spiced cauliflower and raw ‘crumezzan’ sprinkles
- cheese and wine plate which was rich with subtle flavors and great texture
- a refreshing glass of home-made kombucha
As well as being delicious, the food was very satisfying leaving no room for dessert, much to my chagrin as I had been eyeing the banoffee pie.
Their lunch combos are 14 -18€ and individual dishes are around 14€, which is similar to what you pay at most of the non-casual vegan places in town.
All in all, it was a great experience and it’s walking distance from the Eurostar if you’re coming over from London!
