restaurant review #238 – Jardin is a cosy little place in the center of Goes (Zeeland, NL), just near the market. It opened in the Spring of 2019. There are three vegan options: the sandwich with hummus, a vegan salad, and a vegan bowl. We took the sandwich and the bowl. The hummus is homemade, and was very nice. The bowl came with white sticky rice, and vegetables / sprouts (and some avocado too).
restaurant review #237 – Pele Surf Shack is an all vegan beach place. It opened in the Spring of 2019. From the parking area, it’s about a 5-10 minute walk to the beach. Then at the end, Pele Surf Shack is on your left. We were here for lunch in May. Pele Surf Shack is a nice spacious place, with tropical vibes. It also has a large outdoor terrace, looking at the beach and the sea. It was still a bit too chilly to sit outdoors (and windy), so we sat inside.
restaurant review #236 – Bistro Denderend Lekker is located in Aalst, just a 5 minute walk from the central market square. We were here for lunch on a weekday, and sat on the spacious terrace in front of the restaurant. Vegan options are clearly noted on the menu as such. There are some vegan appetizers like vegan cheeezeballs, spring rolls, dumplings… The main dishes include wrap, cheezecroquettes, chili sin carne, vegan vol-au-vent, …
restaurant review #233 – Gelato Queen is not really a ‘restaurant’, but a ice cream and coffee house in the center of Oostkamp (just outside of Bruges). We were here a couple of weeks ago, after we had lunch at vegetarian restaurant Pasta Puur, just around the corner.

restaurant review #230 – Otomat is part of a chain of restaurants in Belgium. We had already visited the Otomat in Bruges a couple of weeks before and liked it (see review here).

It is located at the Oude Graanmarkt, not far from De Beurs / La Bourse. There are two vegan pizzas standardly available: the dirty vegan (a new pizza) and Las Vega.

We were here before two years ago, and really enjoyed our visit (see review). We saw there was still place for lunch when we were in London last October (after VegfestUK), and we decided to make an online booking for lunch.
