#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 …

#123 Three course menu at La Divina Commedia, Louvain

Restaurant review #123 – La Divina Commedia is an Italian restaurant in the city center of Leuven (Louvain), just a step away from the city hall. It’s not an ordinary pasta and pizza place, but offers a more gastronomic and stylish dining experience. La Divina Commedia does not have a vegan menu standardly available. So unfortunately it’s not a place where you can just walk in and order a vegan menu. But I had seen it mentionned in a vegan facebook group as a restaurant where one can order a vegan menu, if requested in advance. I had tried to make a reservation on a previous visit to Louvain at La Divina Commedia, but when I phoned a couple of days in advance, I was told that that would not be possible, and that I should request it at least a week in advance (so they can go buy vegan products). So well before our next visit to Louvain, that’s what I did! This review is from our visit a few weeks ago (Spring 2017). …

#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 …
