First Review by LisaKersbergen

nice atmosphere - Edit

We made a reservation and were told on the phone, also upon arrival that there'd be limited time for us. Staff was rather socializing with some people at the bar.. ;) so we only had time for one course because of that and it wasnt that special nor enough for going a night out afterwards. It was a nice place though and everyone was friendly.

Great food, creative and tastful - Edit

Had dinner with a good friend at Broei 2wks ago. Pleasantly surprised by the fact good plant-based food can be enjoyed in a place with a good vibe and atmosphere. Main dish with egg-plant and bulgar (if I recall correct), really tasteful. Desert was a choc. mousse with earth pear. I think I never had that before, but what an awesome taste and structure! I always created my own (non-vegan) chocolate mousse and never found any better recipe. Hated to give that dish up with going vegan, though this version lighted up my day, knowing a solid plant based alternative is actually at hand :-)

So far BROEI is the best vegan place I've been to in NL, combining a 'regular' good atmosphere with creative dishes, good timing of the menu delivery, thoughtful service and nice juices to come along. Yes I will definitely return!

Pros: Creative, tasteful plant based dishes, Nice buzz, nice venue, Garage park is 1 min walk

Cons: Location Centre Utrecht (for me that is), Opening hrs till 22u (23u would be better)

Food has gotten so good! - Edit

I live close to Broei but somehow I had never been super impressed by them. Sure, they have a lovely and cosy interior and serve vegetarian food, but up until now their vegan selection has been pretty meager, to the point where one waiter even seemed annoyed when I asked if a soup they served that day was vegan.

Things have changed for the better, however! As one other reviewer mentioned, their kimchi-tempeh sandwich (on the menu in summer 2017) is simply amazing. I've also been there for dinner and was very happy with the spicy cauliflower steak.

In addition, they have a nice selection of sodas (try the cucumber one!) and serve a decent coffee, even with oat milk. (Have to say though that for truly epic coffee you'll have to go across the street to Brauhaus.. you could even pack lunch from Broei to eat at Brauhaus.. just an idea).

Overall, Broei is now a restaurant I happily go to since they have upgraded their vegan options. That kimchi-tempeh sandwich is a dream.

Pros: some great vegan options, nice drinks, good workspace!

Cons: more vegan options would be nice, no vegan cakes?

Who needs options? - Edit

Who needs more vegan options when the kim chi tempeh sandwich is the best damn sandwich ever?

Not me.

Go and eat it.

Great location and vibe too.

Great tempeh sandwich! - Edit

We came here around 14:30 and it was nicely crowded, but still with enough place to sit. Very lovely interior design.
There is a vegan sandwich option a vegan salad option. We both went for the tempeh sandwich with kimchi and chilisojanaise. It took a bit of time before it arrived but it was all worth waiting! It tasted delicious.
I do find it a pity that there was no vegan cake or sweet treat.

Pros: Great taste and flavor of vegan sandwich, Cool interior

Cons: no vegan cake or sweet treat

Cozy place but not enough vegan choices - Edit

This is a very nice place for a drink or a full menu, but vegan options are not very elaborated yet.
I hesitate to come back a second time cause I'll have to eat the same thing again.

Pros: nice location, cozy place, cool drinks

Cons: not enough vegan options

Favorite spot for vegan food - Edit

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Utrecht. On the menu you'll find healthy vegetarian and vegan dishes with surprising taste combinations. They also have a nice wine selection. I think especially for vegan food this is about the highest quality you can find in Utrecht. Personnel is always friendly. The atmosphere is informal and the interior style I would describe as 70's retro.

Pros: - Multiple vegan options - High quality food - Nic

Cons: - Quite busy around dinner time

tasty sandwiches - Edit

There is plenty if room with all kind of seats. The vegan items are labeled on the menu and the ones that can be made vegan too.
We had a very tasty sandwich with sweet potato, coco and peanut. And a nice one with sauerkraut, mostard and mushrooms. This one was made vegan by changing the mayonaise to cashew cream. A strong and special taste. I liked it but my friend disliked the taste of the mostard or vinegar.

Pros: tasty sandwiches, vegan items are labeled

They try - Edit

Nice place with good vibe. The people are nice, but not very professional at waiting tables. After trying to get their attention for half an hour, just walked up to them.

When ordering a bottle of wine, they do not let you taste it/poor the glasses for you/ or even open it up. Unfortunately the wines where not very good either, one of them had a lot of gunk in it. When asked they said it was because it was biological, which was according to the bottle not true.

My food arrived with an egg on top, painfull mistake if some says multiple times they want the vegan option. Luckily someone else at my table did feel like eating the egg, so it was not completely waisted. But yeah my appetite was a bit gone by then. The rest of the dish I did really like though, however they made another mistake with the order so forgot one of dishes. Luckily they were very quick at making another plate. Quality of the plates differed dramatically, the same dish was for one of us prepared just nice, but on an other plate way to salty.

After that we kind of lost hope. Too bad though, cause it has potential.

Pros: vegan options available, nice atmosphere

Cons: a lot of mistakes were made, you have to leave the building before 22.00, just not good enough
