On Saturday the sun came back in Paris after a very rainy week and I decided to take a walk and headed to the beautiful park of Les Buttes Chaumont.
Before getting to the park I made a stop at a restaurant nearby, Hobbes, for a vegetarian gluten free lunch.
Actually I have read that at Hobbes there are always some options free of gluten on the menu so I wanted to check it out and taste them.
At Hobbes everything is organic, vegetarian and cooked fresh everyday using the best ingredients. Most of them are locally sourced and everything is seasonal.
I opted for a very nice quinoa salad with poached egg and raw vegetables.
I also tried the gluten free falafel with chickpeas and a delicate soya, parsley sauce. Needless to say that I enjoyed them both!
For dessert I went straight for the Hobbes, the house specialty.
It consisted in a vegan gluten free cheese cake made of cashew, dried nuts, honey and fresh fruit. It was yummy!
I also had a chai latte with rice milk.
The place looked very comfy and laid-back to me: I relaxed, chit-chat with the staff, and got myself lost looking at the people passing by in the street.
After, well, of course I made it to the park 😉
Les Buttes Chaumont is just a few blocks aways and it is one place to go here in Paris: with small hills, you go up and you go down, then up again… it’s fun!
