Vegan brownie at Cat Cafรฉ Dreamcathers, Ghent

Dreamcathers is a cat cafe in between the city hall and the Vrijdagmarkt, in a small alley. It is not far from vegan lunch bar Mie Vie. There are a couple of resident cats who are up for adoption. Dreamcathers work together with the organisations Dierenasiel Gent (shelter Ghent) and Kat Zoekt thuis (Cat looking for a home). Dreamcathers has vegan cakes and brownies and also offers drinks to enjoy while being among the cats (I think all the cakes are vegan, but not quite sure). Cats and vegan cake: a great combination! ๐Ÿ™‚ I was here a couple of weeks ago with a friend, after our lunch at vegan cafe Mie Vie. Dreamcatchers works with timeslots. It is advised to make a reservation, but you can always try to inquire on the day itself to check availability. So I did (telephoned beforehand) and it was no problem to come over. The entrance fee is 3 euro per person (if you become a member, which is 10 euro, the entrance fee is reduced to 1,5โ‚ฌ). …

#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 Cafรฉ 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 & mangoย  (2,40โ‚ฌ). And for lunch we had paninis: one with mushrooms and tofu, the other with ‘mozarella’ (each 8โ‚ฌ). I didn’t visit the toilets at Mie Vie, so have no photo to include here, and don’t know whether it’s accessible (Why do I otherwise include a pic of the toilet? Read about it HEREย ). The restaurant itself is with …

#95 Seitan stew and portobello burger at Mosquito Coast, Ghent

Restaurant review #95 – Mosquito Coast is a travel restaurant in the city center of Ghent (in between the Korenmarkt andย Vrijdagmarkt โ€“ close to the city hall). It is actually very close to Japanese restaurant Amatsu, which we also visited recently (see review here). I had seen it mentionned several times in some of the Belgian vegan facebookgroups, as a place where vegans also can have a meal. I wanted to go there with a friend and phoned to inquire. The guy at the telephone said they have one vegan dish standardly available (the seitan stew with croquettes) and several vegetarian dishes (turns out some of them can easlily be veganised). I had the seitan stew (17,75โ‚ฌ). My friend had the portobello burger (13,75โ‚ฌ) . We checked with the kitchen staff to know whether the bun of the portobello burger was vegan too (whether it didn’t contain dairy or eggs). Staff seemed to be taken by surprise by this question. Afterย a while, one of the kitchen staff returned to say it was, that it ‘didn’t …

#93 Nice vegan dinner at Japanese restaurant Amatsu, Ghent

Restaurant review #93 – Amatsu is a Japanese restaurant in the city of center of Ghent (in between the Korenmarkt andย Vrijdagmarkt – close to the city hall). I had seen restaurant Amatsu mentioned on one of the Belgian vegan facebook groups. Amatsu has a vegetarian menu standardly available, which can easily be veganised. A vegan friend telephonedย and Amatsu said vegan was no problem, and so she made the reservation for the four of us (all vegans). It was a beautiful Summer evening and we sat on the terrace at the back of the restaurant (very spacious!). It was a Saturday evening and the terraceย soon filled (so I definitely recommend making a reservation). Overview of our menu: (29โ‚ฌ): The food was very nice. Lovely combinations, and some vegetables that are rather rare! I don’t have any photos from theย interior of the restaurant, but walking through it on our way and out, it transpired a nice relaxing feeling. Toilet was clean. Nice tile colours too and a beautifull decorated sink (with flower print). We had a very …
