Sophisticated restaurant

Posted on 11 / 02 / 2014

I had lunch at Umami because of its good location directly across from the train station. The restaurant is very sophisticated and the interior looks so posh and perfect that I felt a bit shabby in my traveller's outfit!
I chose the Chuka Wakame (seaweed salad) and Buddha Mix (mushrooms), which were a combination lunch deal. Both dishes tasted very good and fresh, but I must admit that they were so small that after having finished I still felt very hungry, and that rarely happens to me! So I recommend that you order a combination of all dishes, as described in the first review below.

Pros: Delicious and unusual dishes, Convenient location, Great and modern interior
Cons: Very small dishes

Creative veggie fusion food in a non-veg place

Posted on 12 / 31 / 2013

When we planned our day trip to Maastricht we had some difficulties to find a vegan-friendly place for lunch - which is quite astonishing for a city which is famous for its number, quality and variety of restaurants.

"Umami" was not listed on Happy Cow yet. Eventually we found a vegan blog with a positive review of "Umami" and we decided to give it a try - also because of its convenient location right across the central station.

We arrived at noon and were the only guests at that time, maybe because having warm lunch in a restaurant is not so much a Dutch tradition.

The first pleasant surprise: the friendly waitress was a vegan!

The lunch card is not big but has 4 vegan dishes: "Chuka Wakame" (Japanese seaweed salad with cucumber), "Tropical Beetroot" (beetroot salad with tropical fruit), "Buddha Mix" (three kinds of mushrooms with celery) and "Spicy Monk" (zucchini served with tofu in a spicy tomato sauce).

The dishes are small and are supposed to be combined and shared. A combination of the four vegan dishes including white rice costs EUR 14.95 which is really not expensive.

The food was of the kind I often miss in our veggie restaurants: delicious, creative, fresh, colorful, with surprising combinations, nicely arranged in little bowels.

We did not try the dinner card, but for sure "Umami" is a good alternative when no veggie places are around - or when you just want to try something new.

Pros: delicious + creative food, friendly service
Cons: serves meat, wish they had more veg options
