Respond to Review of Frituur Veggie Eetboetiek Royal
Review: We went there on our first day in Bruges, only to discover it was closed from 2pm to 5pm. Even though this was rather discouraging, as it is quite far from the city center (15min walk?), we came back the day after. The owner did not seem to like the fact that we wanted to think about what we were picking. It took us a while, but that was not our fault, as the menu was huge and rather unorganized. Eventually we had a large portion of chips (it took us a while to find the price...), spring rolls, a tofu-seitan burger, some seasonal burger based on peas and hot veganaise (normal was out). For all this we payed around 12 euros, which isn't all that much, but I felt ripped of by their burger policy a little. The burger itself is 3 euros and for another 50 cents you get a bun, some salad and some ketchup. 3.50 for a burger with bun is fine, but 3 euros for only the burger is rather pricey. We asked if we could stay, but were told that we could only stay if we would buy something to drink :-/ (even though the place was empty). We decided to take it with us and eat it outside. The spring rolls tasted pretty nice, especially with the veganaise that was unlike others we had before and very tasty. I liked the burgers okay, my girlfriend found them tasteless. We both agreed on the fact that the ketchup dominated the whole burger. The chips were okay, but rather cold already. Overall nothing great about the food. It was pretty fatty, but I guess you shouldn't expect anything else when getting food at a snack bar. The owner seemed rather grumpy, and somehow you had the feeling you weren't really welcome. It was especially weird that the name contains the word "veggie", while they sell a large variety of meat and seriously promote it inside.
