Citadellaan 47, Gent, Ghent, Belgium

Good atmosphere

07 Jul 2011

The daily dish I found to be tasty but a little bland. A mix of everything (salad, pasta, grains etc.), which unfortunately I don't think was vegan. It got really busy so I'd call ahead to make a reservation, as we had to share a table with another couple and we only got that table for coming in early. I was suprised they didn't make any soymilk based drinks. But it was reasonable and the staff were friendly.

Great food wrong location

22 Oct 2012

I ate here tonight and the food was great, they have a range of mock meats but also great vegetable dishes, I love it.

However they have moved to 15b Trang Thi, now called 'lean & green' my understanding is they have become part of another restaurant which does serve meat but the vegetarian menu is 70% would definitely recommend.

The service was good too.

As a vegan who loves raw foods there were a million options, all with generous serves, clearly marked as vegetarian, vegan, raw, etc and all really healthy. I'm still in awe of the fact they use local small businesses for suppliers and everything there is environmentally friendly (recycled serviettes, etc.).

There were so many amazing options. Good value and great tasting! I love the fact there were so many desserts available too. The staff were cheerful and friendly too! Great atmosphere and a lovely view.

You could drink oil instead

07 Jul 2011

My excitement upon seeing a vegan buffet since arriving in London quickly diminished once I arrived in this cafe.

Every dish was literally drowning in oil. they didn't even have white or brown rice available, almost everything was some sort of dried looking mock meat and essentially looked like it had sat there all day. From what I did try, I couldn't taste much but oil.

When I tried to salvage my meal by filling up on fruit salad (the only thing not drowning in oil), even that tasted terrible with cheap tinned pineapple and chalky apples.

Although it's cheap I wouldn't recommend you waste your money, the staff essentially ignored us once we got through the door.

Playing it safe

22 Oct 2012

You can get a lot more for your money and a better understanding of Vietnamese cuisine. The food is so so and a bit on the pricey side. But the service is very good. The decor is nice, true what others said reminds you of being back in the West. Not that many vegan options, but those are clearly marked.

Nederkouter 42, Gent, Ghent, Belgium

Best vegan burger!

07 Jul 2011

I recently stumbled upon this restaurant on in the street and was plesantly suprised. Nice decor and friendly (english speaking) staff who are only to happy to help. They also have an english menu and vegan options clearly marked. The food is inexpensive and very tasty! They have great to go options, I loved their sandwhich and vegan chocolate brownies!! But their carrot burger was amazing! Best vegan burger I have ever had! I will definitely be going back!

116 Ngo 166 Kim Ma, Ba Dinh, Hanoi, Vietnam

Extensive mock meat menu

22 Oct 2012

If you want mock meats then definitely give this place a try they've got every mock meat and mock egg under the sun.

Great immitations, but as a regular customer I wish they could do more with tofu or vegetable dishes.

However a good opportunity to try dishes such as bun cha which normally you can't as a veg*n.

Quite cheap and well worth the trek for, once you reach alley (ngo) 166 there will be signs say 'com chay'.

The staff are well used to foreigners.

192/4 Quan Thanh, Ba Dinh, Hanoi, Vietnam

Great fresh spring rolls

22 Oct 2012

The fresh spring rolls here are amazing!

However I found the rest of the food here so so, however it is cheap and all vegan and the service is very friendly so I would definitely go back to try it again.

Definitely closed on Sundays (evenings at least).

79 A Tran Hung Dao, Hoan Kiem, Hanoi, Vietnam

Amazing food

22 Oct 2012

Great menu, loads of choices and even vegan desserts ( delicious banana chocolate crepe). The staff are helpful and there are great set menus to pick from. As a hanoian I can tell you this is my favourite veggie place by far!

1 Hoogpoort, Gent, Ghent, Belgium

Tasty but pricey

07 Jul 2011

As a vegan there were only a select few choices you can pick from maybe about 30% or less were vegan food wise, however this is one of the few places you can find soymilk in Gent.

When I first got to the store I found the girl behind the desk could only vaguely speak English and had to ask the help of another customer to translate, as someone who has recently moved here, this was my first encounter with someone in a shop who couldn't speak enough English to communicate an order.

I ordered a burger and a milkshake, the burger was reasonably priced and good but the milkshake was actually a smoothie, whilst it tasted good it was quite a small serve, though maked as a medium and cost me the same amount as the burger.

It was good for a quick meal but I wouldn't go out of my way to go back there again. There are better vegan options in Gent.
