The Hague: A good place for for vegetarians
Posted on 08 / 14 / 2012
This restaurant is quite popular among local vegetarians and their friends (yes, it does attract also omnivores!).
It is situated on the edge of the city center at a canal. During summer time it is really nice to sit outside on the terrace (in the backyard).
As already mentioned above, the menu is built around a daily special. So there is ONE daily menu with starter, main course and dessert.
Here is the downside for vegans: the food is pretty much ovo-lacto. It is possible to have a vegan version on request, but that usually means that you get exactly the same food in exactly the same quantities as the vegetarians minus the non-vegan components. So, If the main attraction of a main course is a vegetarian croquette, the vegan version of the dish is the same as the vegetarian one, just no croquette. And if the standard dessert is strawberries with cream you get exactly the same quantity of strawberries as anybody else, just no cream. So there is some room for improvement.
Conclusion: a good place for vegetarians - not so much for vegans, alas.
good value, nice location
lack of vegan options
