restaurant review #275 – Alfalfa is a vegetarian restaurant in the city center of Leuven, not far from the central train station. We were here a couple of weeks ago, and had a light lunch.
Vegan options are clearly labeled on the menu (the menu is in very small print though, some larger letters would be helpful 😉
The mushroom pesto dish was not available that day, pity, because it sounds good!
We had the falafel sandwich (10€) and the falafel dish (12€) (falafels with baba ganoush).
Both the falafel sandwich and the falafel dish were nice.
The sandwich came wrapped in oven paper. When unpacking, it was a bit unhandy to eat though.
Both were large portions, and the falafel dish came with bread on the side. But 10€ for the sandwich was perhaps somewhat overpriced.
Falafels were nice, although a bit on the dry side.
For drinks we had lemonades (ginger lemon 3€ and lime mint 3,5€), which were lovely! (and no plastic straw!)
Alfalfa is a nice, bright place. There is some outdoor seating as well. Chairs are hard wooden chairs though, not so comfy.
Toilets are small, but clean. Some soft paper tissues to dry one’s hands.
Only part of the inside of the restaurant is accessible, one room is elevated (step of about 1 foot). No accessible toilet.
All in all: we had a nice light lunch. Definitely worth a try!
