restaurant review 354 – Otomat is a chain of restaurants in Belgium (half a dozen locations). We have been to various locations of Otomat before: the ones in Bruges, in Brussels, in Leuven, and also this one in Ghent.
restaurant review #353 – A couple of months ago we visited new vegan restaurant Soul Kitchen in Gent. It is located at the edge of the city center, near St Anna square.
restaurant review #338 – Yasai is a vegan catering business from Ghent. We had ordered a take away menu for Valentine’s day, and Yasai did the catering for a party my husband and I organised earlier this year. So Yasai also does catering on location outside of Ghent. Technically this is not a restaurant review, but I’m posting it in that category anyway 😉 The Valentine’s take away menu:
restaurant review #331 – Sin Sin is a new vegan restaurant in the city center of Ghent, at the Kouter. I visited in the beginning of October.
restaurant review #313 – Hey people, I am way behind on my restaurant reviews, life has been hectic the last couple of months :-). But I have a bunch of reviews coming up! Lots of yummie food and nice dining out experiences 🙂
restaurant review #291 – We already had the pleasure of tasting the dishes of plantbased chef Pieter-Jan Lint at a private party (see HERE) and it was delicious. So we were very happy to see the offer of a vegan gastronomic menu for Christmas and New Years eve (end of 2020).
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).
restaurant review #284 – Naturell is the ‘sister restaurant’ of ‘t Aards Paradijs in Nevele, which we have visited a couple of years ago (see restaurant review #156 here). In 2010, chef Lieven Lootens was awarded the title of best vegetable chef of the year (beste Groentekok). Our visit to ‘t Aards Paradijs was a great gastronomic experience, and we have been wanting to go to Naturell for quite a while. A couple of weeks ago it finally happened, as we went there to celebrate my 50th birthday. Yeah 🙂 This review is from a visit to Naturell in October 2020, before the second lockdown measures due to the COVID19 pandemic started.
restaurant review #262 – It’s been a while since I posted. And this review is from a restaurant visit a couple of months ago, just before the lockdown measures due to the COVID19 pandemic started. Epiphany’s kitchen opened at the end of 2018. The restaurant is situated in the city center, next to the medieval castle Gravensteen. We visited mid January 2020, on a Sunday, for lunch. We made a reservation, and that was absolutely necessary, as the place soon filled, and patrons had to be turned away. The interior at Epiphany’s kitchen is very nice. It’s and Instagram worthy decor 😉
restaurant review #257 – Restaurant BEO Versbar is a vegan restaurant in the city center of Ghent, near the Belfry (see update below). The restaurant is at the back of the BEO Versmarkt (an organic shop – selling organic produce – lots of stuff in bulk too). The shop BEO Versmarkt is not all vegan, but the restaurant BEO Versbar is (PS: ‘Vers’ means ‘fresh’, so using fresh produce). We were here a couple of weeks ago, at the end of Summer.
