Respond to Review of CLOSED: Slurps
Review: It is not easy here, in meat-driven Brussels, to find a vegetarian resto, but what a challenge to find a good one! Too bad, SLURPS has failed on every level! My husband (who is vegetarian-unfriendly) and I ( a raw vegan) went to this resto to celebrate my Birthday - and what a disappointment it was!! Firstly, the menu was so complicated that it was difficult to make a choice; once choice was made, the waitress said they do not have ingredients, so they will modify the dish. OK....but It took 40 minutes to prepare our 2-ingridients entrees (14 euros each!)!!! We ordered different things- a cold and a hot one but they turned out to be almost identical! They were small and disappointing taste-wise. Then, it took again 30 minutes for our main courses. The service was so slow, I had to go and ask if the kitchen works, indeed! We waited so long that we were about to leave without a service when our meals (18 euros each) finally arrived!...- and what a surprise!- they were barely warm! The presentation was good, but food was scarce. My meal was overdressed with balsamic vinegar and side-dish rice was cold, dry and undercooked (making me think it was a yesterday's leftover). My husband's dish looked more promising, but it was all about presentation - it wasn't good at all- he barely touched it... Besides that, the waiter had dirty clothes, splashed generously with water or something else - I just couldn't believe he dares serve us in such! The bill was 86 euros - way too much for a scarce food and poor service - a total waste of time and money. Perhaps the worst was not all of the above or my ruined Birthday, but my husband's reaction: "...why you tortured me with this???- I told you -VEGETERIAN FOOD CAN NOT BE GOOD!" So, if you have extra money for such experiments and nerves made of steel, you may try this place by yourself, but I will never go back, I'd rather celebrate my B-Day at Exki!...

I'm sure you know it, but I would highly recommend taking your husband to Soul (listed here). I am visiting Brussels and ate there again last night. Absolutely stunning food, nice decor and very friendly service.
