#242 Vegan burgers at the beach, Jilles, Oostende

restaurant review #242Β  – Jilles Beer and Burgers is a Belgian chain with three restaurants: one in Bruges, Oostende and in Ghent. Since a couple of months, Jilles has a seperate vegan menu. Yeah! The menu lists four vegan burgers: all the same hazelnutburger, with different extras. We visited a couple of weeks ago, as we wanted to try the new vegan burger before going to a show in the neighbouring Kursaal. We sat on the terrace. And waited. And waited. And waited … It took about 25 minutes before a waiter came to simply give us a menu.

#232 Vegan carrot cake at The Gulliver Tree, Bruges

restaurant review #232 – The Gulliver Tree is not really a ‘restaurant’ but more a coffee / tea house. The Gulliver Tree also serves breakfast. and light lunch.

#230 Two vegan pizzas at Otomat, Brussels

restaurant review #230 – Otomat is part of a chain of restaurants in Belgium. We had already visited the Otomat in Bruges a couple of weeks before and liked it (see review here).

It is located at the Oude Graanmarkt, not far from De Beurs / La Bourse. There are two vegan pizzas standardly available: the dirty vegan (a new pizza) and Las Vega.
