#30 Di Coylde, Beernem ***

Restaurant review #30 – Di Coylde is a more upstyle restaurant in Beernem, with a traditional cuisine (meat and fish menus). Beernem is about 13km from Bruges. In 2013, we asked whether a vegan menu is possible for two persons, but got a negative reply. Hence, restaurant Di Coylde is not included in our list of restos outside Bruges where vegans are welcome.

A couple of weeks ago, we had a brainstorm day at work, with lunch for all of us planned at restaurant Di Coylde. The organisers listed everyone’s preferences for lunch (fish, meat, vegetarian or vegan – that’s for me, since I’m the only vegan at work 😉 ) and forwarded this list to the restaurant.

This is the vegan menu that I got at Di Coylde:

  • tomato and courgette crisp
  • green herb soup (unspecified)
  • butternut soup with fennel and mushrooms
  • couscous with grilled vegetables
  • lemon sorbet with mandarines, nuts, raisins and apricots

The food was nice, but it was no gastronomical masterpiece. It started promising, with the appetizer and the soup, although these were very small portions. The waitress didn’t specifify what the green soup was. The main dish was rather uninspirational (grilled vegetables). Nice, but it gave me a ‘eaten that a thousand times before’ impression.
The vegan menu was 35€, without drinks, same price as the menus of my colleagues (meat, fish or vegetarian menu), which I thought was pretty steep.
I appreciate the chef made an effort though 😉
