If you like vegetarian food but would like to stay away from overpriced raw salads and bland tofus, Aquarius is the place to go. It is a very homey and cosy restaurant in the heart of the 14th district. The food is 100% homemade and organic, the prices are more than affordable and the service is pretty great!
Tonight we took our friends Naima, Henri and Thibaut to Aquarius for the first time. Thibaut later admitted that he was scared to not have his meat for dinner. But I think they ended up really liking the place. As usual, I stuffed myself silly but couldn’t resist their delicious desserts….
We started by spliting 2 starters: the hummus and the eggplant dip. Sooo good. Especially the eggplant one. The husband who doesn’t like sharing, had the seaweed salad. With our starters, we enjoyed our Kir Royal à la Rose (Champagne with rose water): incredible!
By the time our main dishes arrived, I had totally forgotten about picture taking… I only remembered when I was almost done with my veggie lasagna with Seitan. They were very yummy and filling.
Then desserts…. the ultimate temptation…. Aquarius’ desserts are just too good and I had to have one. Luckily the husband accepted to share one because I was already stuffed.
We had the date bread pudding. My new favorite. I have to try to replicate it at home.
Accross the table, Naima had the Tiramisu. My old favorite. Yummy too…
Sorry about the bad photos!
