#170 Paninis at vegan lunch bar Mie Vie, Ghent

restaurant review #170 – Mie Vie is a vegan lunch and coffee bar in the city center of Ghent. It is located just next to the Vrijdagsmarkt, on the north side of town. I was here for lunch a couple of weeks ago with a friend. Afterwards we visited Cat Café Dreamcathers which is just 2 minutes away, where we had vegan brownie (review will follow). The website mentions MieVie is a place for “brunch, lunch and sweet hunge”. The menu mentions several sandwiches, paninis, salads, and muffins. One orders at the counter, the food is brough to the table, and when one leaves, pays at the counter. We both had a juice with apple & mango  (2,40€). And for lunch we had paninis: one with mushrooms and tofu, the other with ‘mozarella’ (each 8€).

The restaurant itself is with …

#129 Nice gastronomic dinner at Foodstorms, Ghent

restaurant review #129 – Foodstorms is the catering business of chef Kevin Storms. He hosts a popup restaurant on various locations throughout the year (for example also during the Gentse Feesten, festivities all over the city of Ghent in the Summer). In the Spring of 2017, Foodstorms held a popup restaurant in the city center of Ghent for a couple of weeks, where they also organised gastronomical dinners on selected dates. We went to one of the last gastronomical events on that location, in the St Jacobsnieuwstraat. The popup restaurant was in a place where there used to be cooking workshops. It was now set up with a large communal table in the middle, with barstools, and also a handful of tables for 2 or 4 people on the side. The gastronomic dinner was 50€ for a 5 course menu, prepaid when making the online reservation. This was the menu (see photo) beech muchrooms, avocado, tomato salad ravioli of portobello mushrooms, asparagus, cashews kohlrabi, roasted garlic, garden herbs carrots, blond lentils, fregola, spinach and burnt …
