Restaurant review #76 – Wild Project is a new vegetarian Bistro in the center of Antwerpen, close to the city hall and Het Steen (the castle at the river Scheldt). I went here for lunch a couple of weeks ago with a friend.
It’s a cosy little place, with a handful of seating places inside (I later discovered there is also room upstairs, but we didn’t see that). There’s also a sunny terrace in front.
This what we had for lunch: fresh made juice and a hot ginger drink (3€ each). A vegan burger sandwich (9,5€) and a tofu sandwich (7€).
Food was very nice. The burger didn’t really have a burger texture, but was more a patty of grains and vegs. 7,5€ and 9,5€ for the sandwich and burger is cheap for a main dish, but take into account they are not large portions (a lot of bread and not so much filling). This light lunch was more than enough for us, but If you have a big appetite though, I would suggest you maybe order two things.
Atmosphere was relaxed, it’s a nice bright space, but the wooden chairs don’t invite for long dining. Service was very friendly (not Dutch speaking however, but you’ll get there with English or Italian, the menu is also in English). There are several vegan options available, but they are not indicated on the menu, so you need to verify. Toilet was clean, very colourful and decorated with texts and murals, although very narrow and couldn’t dry my hands after washing.
There were also some good looking vegan pies for dessert at the counter. But we wanted to go to the docks to visit the Sea Shepherd ship (see pics here), and were planning to have some desserts at Greenway in the afternoon (see blog here).
In sum, we had a lovely light lunch at Wild Project. Would love to try some of the other options on the menu. Nice new addition in Antwerp!
