for vegan dining Good-ness in Provence
What an unexpected discovery! In randomly looking up restaurants around cours Julien, the new hip & trendy "quartier " in Marseille we came across this place, La Baie du Dragon. Recommended for its delicious Vietnamese food in general we were extremely and pleasantly surprised to discover that the owner is vegan!
And with 2 entire (!) pages of vegan dishes, not just options!
This kind gentleman is fully committed to veganism but as with all converts has to deal with meat issues as to not alienate his customers which is unfortunate and breaks his own heart
He advised us on his lovely food offerings, on his locally made tofu, on his locally made fruit juice, et voilà served us some amazing starters and main dishes!
There is a lunchtime "branch" next door =, L'Usyne, run by his vegan daughter who also makes vegan patisserie so watch this space for a other review next time in visit Marseille!

Marion, the owner and chef of this small restaurant, is very passionate about her food and makes sure that there are no animal ingredients in her fried vegetable (so yum), the tapenade, the salads she serves as a side dish
this vegan burger is absolutely delicious with grilled aubergines, black olive tapenade (without anchovies) and basil pesto (without cheese)
Make sure to mention "sans frites" (without French fries), and you will get the most beautiful and colorful plate with all kinds of beautifully prepared vegetables items which will make the omnivores wish they had ordered the same!
