Vegetarian eating

I will be visiting Brussels & various other towns in Belgium in a few weeks. Does anyone have any tips on places that serve decent vegetarian food - pizza/pasta places will be a bonus as I will have a 10 yr old (meat eater) with me. Also is it true that all the Belgische friets are cooked in animal fats? Thanks

There is one specific pizza place i know in Brussels.

It is called 'les alexiens'. They serve pizza, pastas, and they have also vegetarian meals.

It is on the 'Rue Haute', i forgot the streetnumber. but it is on a corner of a street.

It is just next to the bowling 'crosly'.

In the center there are a few other vegetarian places, but i don't know the exact adresses.

here you have a site of vegetarian restaurants in belgium and bxl:

One of our top vegetarian restaurants is the following:


Tél. : 02.649.89.81

Chaussée d'Ixelles 329


not directly in the center, but near Flagey.

They offer an open buffet, which can be quite interesting.

The internet sites does not to seem in English, such as following one: www.resto.be

"French fries" baken in animal fat (beef)? Yes, indeed, these are the best tasting ones ... unfortunately... but so good!

Have a look at the Happy Cow's Vegetarian Guide to Belgian vegetarian restaurants,


Brussels has six listed. It will be difficult in some restaurants to find anything non-meat as I discovered.
