#77 – Lovely 3 course vegan menu at Mykene, Louvain (2) ****

Restaurant review #77 – Mykene is a classic restaurant in the city center of Louvain (about 15 minutes from Brussels). We already posted a review of Mykene in 2014. You can see that review here. There are several vegan dishes and also some vegan appetizers standardly available à la carte. Since our last visit, the menu has changed so we tried some new things. This is what we ordered: mushroom carpaccio, pecan cheese, merlot vinegar gel (11,50€) toast with wild mushrooms (15€) And these were our main dishes: jacked potato, stir fried vegetables, sundried tomatoes and almond parmezan (16€) seitan in coconut curry, lentils and basmatic rice (17,50€) The carpaccio of mushrooms was very nice and original.

We tried to eat as much as we could, but even with some …

#67 Lovely vegan dinner at Réliva, Bruges (4) *****

Restaurant review #67 – Restaurant Réliva is one of our favourite places to go dining out in Bruges. It is not an all vegan restaurant, but one of the few places in Bruges where there’s standardly a vegan menu available. We have been here several times over the years, which is quite often actually, since it only opened in 2012! I have already written three reviews of restaurant Réliva. You can find those reviews, with many more photos of the food, the interior, and also the terrace at the back here. This review is from a visit in February 2016, when we were there with friends. There is a 3 course vegan menu (35€) or you can choose from two vegan starters and three vegan main courses. We were glad to see the menu had changed since our last visits, and were eager to try out the new dishes! For drinks I had a fresh vegetable juice 6€. Tonic was 2,50€. Our friends had a bottle of bio-vegan rosé, Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo (25€). Good to see they have vegan labelled wine available, one …
