#35 Our most recent visits to restaurant Réliva (3), Bruges *****

Restaurant review #35 – Restaurant Réliva is one of the few restaurants in Bruges with vegan dishes standardly available. It is not a vegan restaurant, but there’s always a choice of two vegan main dishes and one whole vegan menu (35€ without drinks).

We had these juices from isis, bitter lemon and apple sparkle, 2,50€ each. As we had both eaten sandwiches on our previous visit to Vegaverso, we wanted to try the burgers. We had a de luxe burger soft (8€) and a smokey burger (8,90€) with a bowl of salad on the side (don’t remember the price of that). The ‘bacon’ in the smokey burger tasted creepingly real! Or as real as we both could remember what bacon actually tastes like (being nearly 20 years ago that we both had eaten any).
