#280 Nice setting, food mixed feelings, Mary’s Irish Pub, Kortrijk

restaurant review #280 – A couple of weeks ago, we had dinner at Mary’s Irish Pub in Kortrijk. We originally wanted to go to vegan restaurant BK6 just around the corner, but that was fully booked for the evening. Note: this is from a visit just before the current lockdown measures due to the COVID19 pandemic started (closure of all pubs and restaurants mid October 2020).

#278 Light snack in relaxed atmosphere, The Rabbit Hole, Bruges

restaurant review #278 – The Rabbit Hole is a new place in town where you can get a vegan snack! It is tucked away in a bike shop and located at the edge of town, near the Damse Vaart (next to music shop Metronoom). Once you enter the alley leading to the shop, you discover a large sunny terrace. There are also some seating places/benches inside the shop too. A handful of lunch/snack options, toast avocado and toast with vegan cheeze as vegan options.

#276 Chocolatemousse and a piece of cake at Het Strand (2), Leuven

restaurant review #276 – Het Strand (‘the beach’) is a vegetarian restaurant in the city center of Leuven (Louvain, near Brussels). We have already visited Het Strand in Leuven before (review here). We visited again in July 2020, this time not for dinner, but simply for an afternoon drink. Had a fresh juice, coffee, and the two available desserts: chocolate mousse with speculoos crumble (4,5€) and mokka chocolate pie (4€). Both were nice, although a bit heavy (would not be able to eat this immediately after having lunch or dinner, too much!).

#269 Fresh and healthy lunch bowl, Ohana Pokebowls, Oostende

restaurant review #269 – This review is from a restaurant visit to Ohana Pokébowls in the beginning of 2020, just before the lockdown measures due to the COVID19 pandemic started. Ohana Pokébowls is a new place in the city center (Groentenmarkt). We were here for lunch on a Thursday (market day). We wanted to go in at 11.30, but were told it was still closed (a bit strange on a market day, when there are so many visitors for the market around).

#266 Delicious vegan pizza, Otomat Leuven

restaurant review #266 – Otomat is a chain of restaurants in Belgium (5 locations). We have been to various locations of Otomat before: the ones in Bruges and Brussels. The menu is the same in all locations (at least for the vegan pizzas). This was our first visit to the Otomat in Leuven, a couple of weeks ago. There are 3 vegan pizzas standardly available (and they have been the same for quite a while now, some change would be nice ;-). The Dirty Vegan, The Mega Vega and the Las Vega. We had the Dirty Vegan (with cabbage and seitan, 14,9€) and the Las Vega (with spinach and espuma of soy yoghurt espuma and coconut flakes, 13,9€). Which were again great. Crispy crust and enough topping.
