Spirit in Rotterdam, 10th of August 2013
Posted on 02 / 01 / 2014
We were going to celebrate my sister's birthday at her apartment in Rotterdam, which was a great excuse to go shopping in Rotterdam city centre and visit a restaurant. We always go to the same place: Spirit.
Spirit serves biological and vegetarian/vegan food in buffet style and you only pay for the weight of your plate. This is fair to big and small eaters and creates less waste.
We went there by train, but you can also get there by tram, bus or metro.
It's hard to say what we got exactly, because we tried basically everything there was. We only chose from the vegan options, which were about 20 dishes. Every dish is 100% described on the cards and they are marked as "vegan" and/or "gluten free". They don't have to mark vegetarian dishes, since everything is at least vegetarian.
Everything we had tasted absolutely great, I can't name one bad dish. For starters I had a big cold plate (16 EUR), which pretty much filled me up completely. For the second course I had a small hot plate (7 EUR). Although I was already stuffed, I had to eat everything I had on my plate because of the great taste (and or course because of the calories and protein!). So my stomach was extremely full on 100% biological, vegan food and that for only 23 EUR. Water is free from the tap, or you can get something else. Of course also the drinks are completely biological.
The place looks very nice, calm and relaxing. What we did notice, was that there was no music. We kinda missed that.
Decor: 9/10 (no music)
Bodybuilder-friendly: 10/10 (a lot of high protein options!)
