Vegetable fans and vegan friends, we have found a new and small canteen, very-well hidden, but worth it.
Plan D (D like in Dwich, diminutive of “sandwich”) has just come to rue des Vinaigriers in Paris 10th arrondissement, by the Canal Saint-Martin.
Plan D concept is simple: cooked street food serving only two 100% vegetable sandwiches, as well as a vegan sundae, of course. Each sandwich is named after a color, currently the “Vert” and the “Jaune”. Recipes change regularly and are based on seasonal vegetables and the color lending its name to the sandwich.
Behind Plan D stands Alice Tuyet – Food Patate podcast host – and her companion Christian Stori. They hired chef Joris Lebigot who worked with Stéphanie Le Quellec and Eric Frechon.
At Plan D, everything is homemade. Sandwiches are based on cooked vegetables (pickled, marinated, fried, cooked…), vegetables in all shapes and sizes. Each snack – always served warm because toasted to order, even in the summer – also holds 3 homemade dressings: vegan mayonnaise, vegetable cream, and smoke vegetable jus. Therefore, your sandwich will never be dry. Sandwiches made with bread from MOF baker Frédéric Lalos, ciabatta-style bread, with sourdough and olive oil.
Therefore, in the “Jaune” sandwich, the corn-flake coated cauliflower particularly feels like breaded fish. It is served with banh-mi style marinated carrots. A gourmet and original mix. As for the “Vert” sandwich, spicier, it is based on breadcrumb-coated zucchini and grilled broccoli.
To pair these sandwiches, Plan D only serves homemade fries called “pommes paille”: potatoes very thinly cut, crunchy, served with or without sauce, it is up to you.
The ice cream of the moment is inspired by the famous Snickers fingers. It mixes peanut, chocolate, caramel, and flaky salt. It is delicious. Sandwiches are hearty, but you really want to keep some room left for dessert.
Moving on to drinks, Plan D serves craft beers from Bapbap, natural wines, as well as iced tea from La Boissonerie, a Paris-based company making juices and iced teas.
Plan D is also a location: close to the Canal Saint-Martin, in a hidden street. The restaurant enjoys a few seats at the counter, but more on the terrace, in front of the restaurant and on the sidewalk across. It enables you to admire the very big street art piece. But if crowded, you can still take your sandwich away and enjoy it by the canal. It is very pleasant as well.
