#72 Vegan icecream (and more) at Bar Italiano, Ghent ***

Restaurant review #72 – After our lovely lunch at saladbar Zukini in Ghent (see my review here), we went to Bar Italiano for a vegan icecream. It is only a 5 minute walk from the Overpoortstraat. This was a bit of a trip down memory lane too, as this was the neighbourhood where we lived a couple of years as students! There were three vegan ice-cream flavours: chocolate, speculoos and mint.

Vegan chocolates with mint filling: Bendicks Bittermints

A great find at British store Stonemanor in Everberg (in between Brussels & Leuven). Dark chocolates with mint filling! It has been ages since I’ve eaten after eights, and these come pretty close!

The ingredients list does not mention any animal ingredients, and Bendicks list these Bittermints as suitable for vegans.
