Les Mauvaises Herbes is a newly opened vegan, organic restaurant in Lyon with many gluten free and raw options on the menu.

Their approach to vegetarian food is creative, contemporary, colourful and so tasty!

Located close to the lovely Sathonay square, not far from the l’Hôtel de Ville, the chef Virginie, along with her associate partners François and Thibault, expresses her talent on a daily basis to imagine new combinations of flavours and ingredients.

Her passion for raw food is clearly displayed in her beautiful dishes.

Whether it is raw or cooked at very low temperatures, Virginie takes care to preserve the maximum of benefits and precious properties from the food she cherishes and proposes at her restaurant.

Virginie is a self-taught chef and I am amazed at her incredible talent: each vegetable is perfectly cut, seasoned and disposed on the plate, she masters each technique beautifully!

She is also very kind in person, and it is such a pleasure to talk and to exchange with her.

So today I am back to Les Mauvaises Herbes with my friends Sophie from the blog www.wellnessbysophie.com and Adriana from www.couleurbienetre.com.

During the week they propose a few dishes for lunch, so we opted for the raw lasagne – so good!- and the raw dessert with vanilla cashew cream, no added sugars, no dates (great news for me … not a big fun of dates…:).

I can tell you that this dessert was divine!

Virginie is great at raw food and that’s a must food to try if you come here 🙂

During the afternoon Les Mauvaises Herbes becomes a tea room and in the evening a wine bar with a great selection of organic and biodynamic brands.

Tapas are served no stop along with salads and other dishes.

Artisanal gluten free bread is available as well.

Voilà, here it comes a restaurant that I am literally fallen in love with!
