#303 Traditional vegan dishes and dame blanche! Groenendijk Weert, Bornem

restaurant review #303 – Groenendijk Weert is a traditional restaurant/brasserie along the river Scheldt, in Weert/Bornem. There is a seperate vegan menu of the month with traditional vegan dishes like vegan vol au vent and vegan stew (stoverij). We had made a reservation this Summer on the Belgian national holiday (July 21) and that seemed really necessary. It was fully booked for lunch and several patrons were turned a way.

#286 Vegan pie and more at Karbon, Ghent

restaurant review #286 – This review is from a visit to Karbon in the beginning of October 2020, before the second lockdown measures due to the COVID19 pandemic were enforced. Karbon is a new place in Ghent, where you can order take away (big counter with options stalled out) or eat in the restaurant itself. It is in the city center, not far from the Belfry. We were here on the opening day (Oct 9), as we had seen a post from Chez Mariette delivering vegan pies to Karbon. They also offer several vegan lunch and dinner options, or you can ask to have your dish veganised. Vegan breakfast is also possible. Vegan options are not labeled on menu, so you need to ask. Vegetarian options can mostly be veganised (eg leave out feta).
