#66 Another great lunch at HashtagFood (2), Bruges ****

Restaurant review #66 – Just a couple of months ago, I already posted a review about Hashtag Food in Bruges. We were so excited about this place that, although it was not so long ago, we decided to go visit again, this time with family (omnis).
Hashtag food or #Food is a more bistro-style restaurant. It is in the city center, about 5 minute walk from the main market square, close to the shopping street and just around the corner of Simon Stevinsquare.

Since our last visit, the menu has changed (it changes every couple of months), and there was now also a vegan burger standardly available. Vegan dishes are clearly marked on the menu, and next to every meal there’s info about allergens. It’s funny to see that the names of the dishes refer to classic pop songs 🙂

This is what we ordered. As a starter, some con tomate (9,60€ – tomato salsa with garlic on toasted bread). I had a freshly squeezed orange juice (4,50€), which comes in a individual little bottle. Drinks comes with spicy popcorn. A bottle of sparkling water (50cl) was 4,50€.

For soup the dirty minds (pumpkin, sweet potato, carrot) and the little red corvette (tomato, grilled vegetables, basil), each 6,40€. The bread with the soup comes individually packed in sealed little paper bags. To replace the butter, we each got a tiny bottle of olive oil.

For the main dishes we had the vegan burger (Thriller, 16,50€) with potato wedges on the side (3,50€). And the ‘fade out lines’, a stew with zucchini, eggplant, tomato, carrot and sweet onion, but not with mashed potatoes but with quinoa (18,50€).

We were really too stuffed to eat any more, and had to pass for dessert! These are big portions, more than enough.
We really enjoyed our lunch. The burger could maybe use some finetuning to ‘beef it up’ as it were. I don’t think we would order the stew again. Despite the variety of ingredients, it was a bit monotonous in flavour. I think next time I would go for one of those amazing salads again! (see photos in the previous review).
We also like the atmosphere, and the interior is bright and spacious. Clean and tidy. Service was very friendly and they are knowledgeable about ingredients and what vegan means.
Only minor point was that we were a little bit cold (heating).

This place is buzzing and it was packed for lunch! So definitely make a reservation.
Also note that it closes early in the evening (8PM), so if you want to have dinner, be there early!

    Thanks to your recommendation we visited Hashtagfood yesterday and we loved it! We had the 2 different vegan burgers, both of them delicious masterpieces. Panna cotta as dessert was also fantastic as well as the Elsa salad our daughter ate (with Goji berries and pomegranate)
    They were really friendly and gave our kids an extra present at the end of our visit. We would definitly come again if we will be in Bruges
