restaurant review #314 – Het Slachthuis is a vegan restaurant in Leiden (the Netherlands). We were here for lunch with friends a couple of months ago.
‘Slachthuis’ is the Dutch word for slaughterhouse, so that’s a peculiar name for a vegan restaurant! It is located a little bit outside of the city center, in a former flower/wheat factory, and cohouses with a communal sewing atelier.
Had some appetizers (bitterballen etc). And then the Dutch weedburger (16), Caesar salad (13€) and Philly cheesesteak (10€).
Fries on the side are 2,75€.
Food was very good and service friendly and swift.
We bought some pastry to take with us (unfortunately after the bike ride it was no longer photo-presentable 😉 )
The only downside is that the restaurant room is rather noisy (bad accoustics) and not so comfortable seatings and as such not so relaxed. Toilets were a bit further in the hall, basic but clean, and nicely decorated with old religious statues and ornaments. That was special 😉
All in all: we had a nice lunch! Good value for money, but not so relaxed setting.
