Gone are the days when vegetarians did without. From Michelin-starred vegetarian restaurants to chefs who simply adore cooking with vegetables, diners – regardless of predilection – can delight their palates at any of these three.


Le Potager du Marais

The French penchant for foie gras, oysters, and saucisson means that travellers to the world’s most visited 
city may find that perfect vegetarian menu somewhat elusive. Take a bow, Le Potager, in the lively Marais district of central Paris. The menu focuses on classic, French country fare that may include celeriac bisque or a mashed-mushroom stack over a saffron crème with pine-nut pesto, while the cosy and informal atmosphere at this vegetarian, organic, and vegan spot completes this surprising, bijou package.

Owned by a former Buddhist monk whose life’s work has been to chronicle and share temple cuisine, Sanchon in the South Korean capital of Seoul is among the best vegetarian restaurants in Asia. Meaning ‘mountain village’, Sanchon focuses on green vegetables across more than 20 set menus, all underpinned by a harmony and balance of flavours. Dishes are served in traditional wooden surroundings on low-slung tables with cushions. Try typical dishes including wild sesame and rice porridge, tofu made with pure seawater, and seven mountain vegetable kimchi.

Pied à Terre

Opt for the 10-course vegetarian tasting menu at this Michelin-starred venue in London’s Fitzrovia, and they’ll take you on an idyllic journey. With a deep respect for vegetarian ingredients paired with the technique and creativity to make the most of them to surprising and sublime effect, this classy space plays host to dishes such as chestnut and juniper gnocchi with chanterelles, chestnut and truffle velouté; and avocado crème fraîche with compressed cucumber, samphire, grated horseradish, and breakfast radishes.
