Shop review #11 – V|edge is an all vegan shop in Ghent. It is located at the edge of the city center, near Sint-Annasquare. The concept store in Ghent is only open in the weekend, but you can also order online and have your shopping delivered at home. V|edge also delivers your shopping to delivery points in several cities, among which Bruges. Check their website for details. UPDATE: see below
V|edge offers a variety of vegan products: vegan shoes, handbags, books, vegan cheeses, cookies, candy, energy bars, burgers, chocolate, and other goodies. It is a rather small shop, but they have many items that are otherwise no so easy to find in Belgium.
We are not really into ‘meat or fish substitutes’ (the vegan scampis or burgers type of things). But because we hadn’t tasted Tofurky nor the sausages from File Roast yet, we bought some of those (the jury is still out on those, more about them later). Also some products from Gardein.
We were very eager to try out the vegan cheese croquette’s from YASAI! V|edge’s homebrand though. Already tasted and much approved, yummie! (see our blogpost) Will definitely buy these again. Still need to taste the burgers from Miyamoto, and Alexander, also a homebrand from V|edge. The Jeezo cheese is also a very nice firm cheese, we like it more than the Wilmersburger varieties.
We also bought a T-shirt from the Church of seitan and a waffle mix to make vegan Liegeois waffels. You can see these items in our other blogposts about V|edge.
UPDATE: no longer a shop in Ghent, only webshop now
