#155 Vegan lunch at De Kleinkeuken, Kortrijk (2)

Restaurant review #155 – De Kleinkeuken is a vegetarian restaurant in the city center of Kortrijk (Courtrai). We were here previously about a year ago (see review) and had a nice lunch (although with some points to consider, e.g. the waitress not knowing whether the bread was vegan). A couple of weeks ago, we visited De KleinKeuken again for lunch. We combined our visit to the Kortrijk region with some shopping at vegan shop tAK in Marke, and dropped in at Zonder Meer, a new waiste reduction shop in Kortrijk. Afterwards, we picked up a order for vegan Danish Pastry at Bakkerij Filip in Kuurne. A Saturday morning well spent ๐Ÿ™‚ The lunch menu consists of a salad bar (salad which you can compose yourself) or some hot dishes (with a special suggestions mentionned on the chalk board). Vegan options are clearly noted on the menu. This is what we had for lunch: Soup (courgette soup, large bowl, without bread – we asked about the bread and the waiter did confirm the bread is vegan …

A look inside vegan shop tAK! Marke (Kortrijk)

Shop review#44 – tAK is a new vegan shop in Marke (just outside Kortrijk / Courtrai, half an hour drive from Bruges). We were here a couple of weeks ago, before going to lunch to De KleinKeuken, and visiting the waiste reduction shop Zonder Meer in Kortrijk (blogs will follow).ย  We also went to pick up an order of vegan Danish pastry at Bakkerij Filip. And tAK actually means “thank you’ in Danish ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yes, it was a small vegan excursion to the Kortrijk region! Update – see below The shop is a bit tucked away behind a garden screen and hedge, but there are some signs on the pavement to lead you to the shop. tAK is not really a big shop, but it has a nice selection of products that will especially interest vegans, like gluten powder, nutritional yeast, dried tofu,ย  vegan body and care products, … And also some nice self designed postal cards, candles, frames, toys, pottery and other items that make a perfect and original gift (or a treat to …

Lots of food, people and sunshine! Vegan Summerfest 3, Ghent

At the end of August we went to Vegan Summerfest in Ghent, organised by Belgian organisation BE Vegan.ย We were also at the previous editions in 2015 and 2016. The location was the same as last year, in the Artcube, at the edge of Ghent. The day started a bit cloudy, but afterwards there was glorious sunshine in the afternoon (even left me a bit sunburnt!). It was a lovely Summer day. I made a short clip for IG from inside and outside. This was when it was still very calm, around midday. In the afternoon, the outside square was filled with people and huge lines queuing at most stalls. Again, as previous years, a huge turn out!

Upon entering the hall, we immediately queued at Bakkerij Frimout, to buy about a dozen of Danish …

Interview with Trudi

A couple of months ago, Ned from The Way of the Squirrel Books posted a call to other bloggers to do an interview. I had seen such calls for interviews before on other blogs, but had never actually done one of them. I was contemplating on editing the ‘about’ section on my blog anyway, but then thought this was also a great way of introducing readers with the person behind the blog. A good opportunity to share some insights into why I started blogging, some general thoughts on veganism (keeping in mind it is also an opportunity to reach people who may have never heard of veganism) and just some more general personal stuff. Ned sent me some questions, which I replied to, and he then edited it. It was fun doing, and thanks again Ned, for the opportunity! ๐Ÿ™‚ The original post is up here on Ned’s blog, The Way of the Squirrel books, reposted here with permission. INTERVIEW: MEET AND GREET MONDAY โ€“ BLOGGER:ย BRUGESVEGAN Well, here we are again.ย  Another Monday and another …

GIVEAWAY! 3 year blog anniversary and 100 resto reviews

Threeย years ago, at the end of 2013 between Christmas and New Year, Iย started The Bruges Vegan Blog. I had already been blogging in Dutch on Graswortels (previously called Veggieleven), but decided to start an English blog to share restaurant reviews and other things vegan related with people from around the world. 3 YEAR BLOG OVERVIEW In those three years, I have published 231 posts on The Bruges Vegan. A lot ofย those posts are restaurant reviews. But there are also other posts about our garden, homemade meals in our kitchen, reviews from events like vegan festivals or lectures, and some posts about animal rights. The posts about Remembrance day (Armistice day, but not for the animals and The animal do not want our medals and statues) were shared more than thousands of times. I also posted some shop review (30 posts) and posts aboutย vegan products like vegan caviar or Danish pastry. It is rather a coincidence that the 3 year blog-anniversary coincides withย the milestone of 100 restaurant reviews (number 100 is published after this post). That …

Vegan ‘koffiekoeken’ and pie from Bakkerij Filip, Kuurne

Shop review #30 – Bakkerij Filip is a local bakeryย in Kuurne, which is a small town just next to Kortrijk (Courtrai) in the south of Flanders. I had already seen several posts on facebook and Instagram of their vegan pastry and cakes. Yeah! Vegan pastry is still a rarity in Belgian bakeries, and I have only been able to buy it on one ocasion before, at Bakkerij Frimout in Ghent (see blog here). So when we planned a trip to Kortrijk a couple of weeks ago, I definitely wanted to check out Bakkerij Filip! There is a selection of vegan items for sale at the bakery, among which some specialties that are not so easily found in regular shops in Belgium. Like this omelet mix (still need to try it). Iย also bought some cookies and other goodies (some very nice lemon cookies and veganaise). The wife of bakery Filip, Liraz – vegan herself, gave us a tour of the bakery downstairs, which still runs with some real antique machines (and more modern ones too of …
