I booked #food on the recommendation of @trudi_brugesvegan, who runs the excellent blog brugesvegan.com. The restaurant is located just outside the historic old town of Brugge/Bruges in a new venue with only eight or nine tables. This gives it a lovely, cosy feel and means the server is never too busy to attend to your needs. We were really impressed with the menu, all the starters and desserts were vegan, and the choice of vegan main courses was amazing. In a rare example of how much vegan food has come to the fore, there were several vegan main dishes on offer, but only one each of chicken, fish and beef. Hopefully the point of this is to give meat-eaters the same experience us vegans get in just about every other place we visit… We decided to share the Big Cheese tapas to start. This consisted of four vegan cheeses in different flavours and presentations. The chef brought the plate to our table and gave us a description of each item. My favourites were the cashew nut paste with liquid smoke and the blue cheese flavoured coconut, which tasted like actual blue cheese. We were very impressed already. For main course, we both went for Iron Sky, which was essentially a beetroot burger with salad. However, that description does the dish absolutely no justice at all. The plate arrived as what I can only describe it as a work of art - the burger and bun placed to the right of the plate, the salad and vegetables designed exquisitely around the lower half of the plate and a sky of sauces arranged on the top half. I hope the photo gives a little more insight into this wonderful presentation. It seemed a shame to eat this wonderful creation, and I’m pleased to say the taste matched the presentation. The burger was delicious and the variety of vegetables were an excellent accompaniment. For dessert, I chose the strawberry surprise and my wife went for the sweet potato pie. The strawberry surprise was three different strawberry flavoured desserts, a strawberry and blueberry mousse, a frozen ice lolly, and one in a panna cotta style. The sweet potato pie was vegan chocolate and caramel and both dishes were delicious. The cost of the meal, including drinks, was around €95, which we felt was good value considering the location, atmosphere and food. Overall we were really impressed with #food. The food presentation was amazing and the flavours were perfect. I would highly recommend this restaurant to any vegans visiting Brugge/Bruges, in fact anyone visiting, not just vegans.
