Wow. Time flies. We’ve posted 50 blogposts on The Bruges Vegan already! So decided it was time for a new profile pic. It’s the back of a T-shirt, from this shop: Freeandwild. I bought it at the vegan music festival Ieperfest (15€) some weeks ago, see our blog. I hope I still will get a chance…

restaurant De lachende Javaan, Haarlem (NL)

De lachende Javaan translates as ‘the laughing Javanese’, and is – obviously – an Indonesian restaurant in the city center of Haarlem (close to Amsterdam, the Netherlands).

Restaurant Bali, Wommelgem

Bali is an Indonesian restaurant (obviously) in Wommelgem (about 7 km east of Antwerp). It had been on our ‘to visit list’ for many years (we love Indonesian food!), but for many reasons we never managed to get there before. One of those reasons being the restaurant not being open for lunch (usually the time we…
