I’m passing through Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport on my way to Boston. Last year, when I was in Antwerp, I made much use of a Belgian chain called Exki. They specialise in natural foods and have lots of vegan options. Imagine my joy therefore, to discover a new branch in Terminal 2E.
Now, I’m feeling a little paranoid. I did not see any reference to my special meal request on my boarding card. So, I’ve bought a couple of items (to go with the hummous sandwich and fruit salad bought at EAT at Turnhouse) – a rice salad with stir fried veg and tofu, and a wakame salad. Both contain a substance called Légumaise, which I am assured does not contain egg.
Air France came up trumps, and the food they provided was spectacular. I haven’t eaten the stuff from Exki yet, so consider this a placeholder. The US Customs were happy to let it in, so I’ll be having it for breakfast.
