#138 Vegan lasagne at Lasagnerie Löven, Louvain

Restaurant review #138 – Lasagnerie Löven is a relatively new place in Louvain, with only one dish on the menu. Going by the name of the place, you might have already guessed it: they serve lasagne! In all possible variations, and there is also a vegan version standardly available. Lasagnerie Löven is in the city center, in the Parijsstraat (parallel to the Old Market).
