I have requested many times vegan/vegetarian meals. Normally they are pretty well organized and you won't have to ask for the meal. My strategy is just to wait and if I am given the normal food, then I politely remind them I have a special arrangement. In hundred of flights, this has only happened maybe 1 or 2 times.

I request a vegetarian meal for every flight and I highly recommend to make the request by phone. This seems to be the most effective method of ensuring you will actually get a vegetarian meal. When ordering the meal on the airline website, it has happened to me before that my order got lost and I did not get my meal. Simply look up the customer service ...

According to La Fourchette, which is a website where you can find all the restaurants in France, the only Vegan restaurant in the 5th arrondissement of Paris is "Le Puits de L├ęgumes". I leave it to you to use La Fourchette to find others! Around the 5th, you have the 6th, the 4th and the 13th arrondissements.
