#166 Very nice lunch at Hashtag Food, Bruges (4)

restaurant review #166 –  Hashtag Food is a restaurant at the edge of Bruges. It is not a vegan restaurant, but they have several vegan options standardly available.  Hashtag Food used to be in the city center, but in the Fall of 2017, the restaurant moved to a quieter area at the edge of the city, near the Scheepsdalebrug. We have visited Hashtag Food on several occasions throughout the years. Previous reviews of Hashtag Food are here. But this was our first visit to the new location at the Scheepsdalebrug. This review is from a visit at the beginning of this year. The new location is a nicely renovated place, with earth and wood like colours dominating the atmosphere. The old vinyl records as placemats have remained. I love the idea, but as a music lover, also have some heartache using vinyl this way! The menu options have changed somewhat. The only vegan appetizer is a tapas selection. Options to make combinations (eg potatoe wedges on the side) are gone, as it became too difficult to …

#135 Delicious lunch at Hashtag Food, Bruges (3)

restaurant review #135 – Hashtag Food is a bistro in Bruges, with vegan options standardly available. They are currently CLOSED and moving to the edge of the city, where they will reopen in november 2017. This review is from our last visit to the old location, in the city center.  We have visited Hashtag Food several times before, and you can read previous reviews here. This is what we had on our last visit: We loved the food! Everything is freshly prepared and the dishes are always beautifully presented. Very friendly service too. Total of our lunch for two was 91€, which we think is fair and good value for money. Very much looking forward to visiting the new Hashtag Food!   #Food or Hashtag Food, location OLD ADDRESS: Oude Burg 30 8000 Brugge / Bruges +32 (0)50 70 76 70 website: http://www.hashtagfood.be/ NEW ADDRESS, reopening November 2017: Scheepsdalelaan 37, 8000 Brugge. location View this post on Instagram In Bruges. #tandembike #multicycle #vegancyclist #bruges #visitbruges #cycling #belfry #canals #veniceofthenorth #brugestandem #tandembruges #multicycletandem #rozenhoedkaai #boattrip #inbruges A post shared by trudi_brugesvegan …

GIVEAWAY! 3 year blog anniversary and 100 resto reviews

Three years ago, at the end of 2013 between Christmas and New Year, I 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 of 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 about vegan products like vegan caviar or Danish pastry. It is rather a coincidence that the 3 year blog-anniversary coincides with the milestone of 100 restaurant reviews (number 100 is published after this post). That …

#66 Another great lunch at HashtagFood (2), Bruges ****

Restaurant review #66 – Just a couple of months ago, I already posted a review about Hashtag Food in Bruges. We were so excited about this place that, although it was not so long ago, we decided to go visit again, this time with family (omnis). Hashtag food or #Food is a more bistro-style restaurant. It is in the city center, about 5 minute walk from the main market square, close to the shopping street and just around the corner of Simon Stevinsquare. (update: new address since Dec 2017, see below) Since our last visit, the menu has changed (it changes every couple of months), and there was now also a vegan burger standardly available. Vegan dishes are clearly marked on the menu, and next to every meal there’s info about allergens. It’s funny to see that the names of the dishes refer to classic pop songs 🙂 This is what we ordered. As a starter, some con tomate (9,60€ – tomato salsa with garlic on toasted bread). I had a freshly squeezed orange juice (4,50€), which comes in a individual …

#57 Fabulous lunch at #HashtagFood in Bruges *****

Restaurant review #57 – Hashtag Food opened in 2014. It is in the city center, about 5 minute walk from the main market square, close to the shopping street and just around the corner of Simon Stevinsquare. (Update: see below, new address since end 2017, now at edge of city) It’s a bright and very spacious place (they could have easily cramped in another half a dozen or so tables, but luckily they didn’t. Now you can breathe!). It looks hip and trendy! The table place mats are old records, which immediately gives you something to talk about 🙂 As do the names of the dishes! The menu is more bistro style (note that it also closes at 8PM). There are several vegan items standardly available, and some dishes that can easily be veganised. You can see the menu (in English) here. The chef did tell us that the menu changes every once in a while, and there would be a vegan pasta available soon. Both the waiter and the chef were very friendly and knowledgeable about what vegans means, which gave us …
