Tien Hiang is a vegan and vegetarian restaurant situated in the heart of the 10e arrondissement of Paris, close to the Parisian favourite hotspot of Canal-Saint-Martin. Constantly busy (the food is just that good), you may have to wait a quarter of an hour to be seated- even on week nights.
As a vegetarian in Paris, it can sometimes find it difficult to find restaurants with one vegetarian options, let alone a couple!
As a result, I’m always pleasantly surprised when I can eat absolutely everything on the menu (as I could at the vegetarian restaurant in Paris of Tien Hiang). An added bonus, of Tien Hiang is that almost everything is vegan- with the exception of one dish which contains cheese. This means that even if you’re vegan, there are still dozens of options on the menu available to you. All of the ‘meat‘ on the menu (duck, ham) is derived from soya and vegetable products.
Now normally I’m a slow eater. So slow, in fact, that people often leave the table before I’m even done eating! So, you’ll have to believe me when I say that the food was sooo good that I ended up being the first person to finish my meal!
For starters, I had the ‘prawn’ rolls which were 4.50 for four and for my main course, I had the stir fried noodles with ‘ham’ and tofu pieces. It can often be difficult to cook tofu and meat substitutes well. They are often too soggy or too damp and not flavoursome enough. However, the ‘ham’ pieces in my noodles were some of the best meat subtitles I’ve ever eaten.
