Not enough vegan options. - Edit

Saw 3 Exki restaurants at the airport

- smaller one at entrance of the departure hall (in front of the check in rows)
- a larger one in the departure hall (left of the check in rows)
- a smaller one at the start of terminal B

Was expecting to at least find a vegan sandwich at the larger one in the departure hall, but helas :-/ So we had some falafels and salads.

Did find a vegan labelled sandwich at the smaller one at the beginning of terminal B (at the gates).

The food was nice. But it would also be nice if EXKI pays more attention to waiste reduction. So much plastic ...

Wanted to take some photos of the food options in the fridge, but was stopped by an Exki employee and prohibited from taking any further photos. I asked whether it was bc of airport security (but I don't see how taking photos of salads would jeopardize that in any way). But the answer was that it is a general rule in ALL EXKI restaurants that no photos are allowed. WUT? :-O

Pros: at least we found something vegan

Cons: not enough vegan options , no photos allowed of all EXKI? , too much waiste

Airport restaurant with some vegan options - Edit

It is definitely not my preferred restaurant, now in an airport, especially after security (there are also 2 before security slightly bigger), you have to take what you get.

From that point of view, the vegan options they propose, should be a must have in all airport restaurants, now that is not the case.

Therefor this is really a great start, I hope it gains some popularity with these vegan options, will extend it and will inspire other airport restaurants as well.

Everything that is vegan, is well indicated, and labels also the ingredients.

Pros: Good vegan food for airport, Great initiative

Cons: It stays close to a traditional airport restaurant

not too many options and not good ones - Edit

It always saddens me when all this places try and appeal to vegans in the worst possible way, there is a lot more to vegan food than salads... all the baguettes have meat or fish (there is a hummus baguette with tuna)
They do a falafel wrap for close to ten euros, so as always healthy food is taxed more than anything that's gross and bad for you
So it's going to be a crust of bread and a soup, will not be trying this chain again

Very few vegan options - Edit

This small chain of "bio/natural" foods stores offers a selection of baked sweets, sandwiches, soups and salads. Also offers tea/coffee (cow or soy milk options). The food items are colour coded to help easily ID gluten free, lactose free, bio, vegie or vegan. There's a plentiful selection of non veg and veg items but the only vegan items I saw were a couple of small side salads such as tabule. Happy to see a place like this available in an airport but I'd hardly recommend it for vegans (hence my 2 star rating).

Pros: Nice to see conscious food concept at airport

Cons: Not enough vegan options
