#175 Pasta lunch at Petit Paris, Kortrijk

restaurant review #175 – Petit Paris is a restaurant in the city center of Kortrijk / Courtrai, near the central market place. We were in Kortrijk a couple of weeks ago, when we visited waste free shop Zonder Meer, to try some of the vegan cheeses that were available to taste that day. Restaurant Petit Paris is just across the street from Zonder Meer, and Johan from Zonder Meer said that they are always willing to prepare something vegan. So we went to try it!

Good thing, because by about half past 12, the place was packed and several visitors had to be turned away. Petit Paris is not really a ‘restaurant’ for elaborate wining and …

#16 Restaurant De Bron, Bruges ***

Restaurant review #16 – De Bron is the only vegetarian restaurant in Bruges. It is locatedΒ in the south of the city center, near the Beguinage and the Minnewaterpark . It is only open during weekdays for lunch, and offers a soup of the day and aΒ plat du jour, which can be ordered in different sizes: baby, mini, medium and super size.

Most of what’s served in De Bron is organic. They also offer take-away lunch (orders must be placed before 11.30). Lunch We have been to the Bron several times over the last couple of years. On our last visit in March 2014, we had the soup of the day (2€), which happened to be vegan that day (carrot and chard). I went for theΒ mini-size plat du jour (10,5€), my partner had the medium size dish (11€), which is already a fairly big portion. The plat du jour mostly consists of grains andΒ a selection …

#11 Salade Folle, Bruges ***

Restaurant review #11Salade Folle is located near the Beguinage (Begijnhof) and the brewery De Halve Maan. We had already inquired via e-mail whether we could get a vegan menu at Salade Folle (specifying what we do and don’t eat) and got an affirmative reply: ‘we can prepare something to meet everyone’s wishes‘. When we made the reservation, I asked again about the possibility of a vegan menu, and it was no problem, we could go the same evening. We were there on a Thursday evening and it was pretty quiet. Salade Folle is a spacious place, with high ceilings and seating upstairs as well. It is more a bistro-style type of place, with pastas, quiches and salades (obviously) on offer. Our waiter was very friendly and knowledgable about animal ingredients in certain dishes. He also did not have a problem to go double check for animal ingredients for some items, which gave us a reassuring feeling. All in all, our menu options were quite limited, but at least we each could get a different main …
