Thoi Lai Quan (99% vegan)
Thoi Lai Quan is a Vietnamese restaurant. All is vegan except the condensed milk for the coffee and honey. We started with two fresh summer rolls filled with soy meat, rice noodles, iceberg lettuce, and mint. Also, two fried springs rolls filled with vegetables and soy meat (4.50 euros for four spring rolls). The sweet and salty peanut sauce was delicious.
We also had “Green garden” (7.50 euros). It came with tofu, soy meat, many vegetables roasted in soy sauce, onions, and fresh cilantro.
And we shared “Coconut Paradise” (7.90 euros). It came with tofu, sweet potatoes, curry, peanuts, fried onions, and fresh coriander. What a great and delicious combination! There is a buffet offered from Tuesday to Saturday from 12:00-16:00 for 6.90 euros.
Maharani is an elegant Indian restaurant that has many vegan options. The chefs are from northern India and have a lot of experience in creating unique Indian dishes. We started with a chutney platter: tamarin, mango, chili, and cilantro. It was served with papadam bread seasoned with caraway that is vegan and gluten-free (rice and lentil flour).
The presentation is very charming and the atmosphere is comfortable. The inside is decorated with many Indian items and comfortable sitting throughout the restaurant. We had Bindi Masala with unique flavoured okra and peppers in a ginger, tomato, curry, and onion sauce with grated coconut (14.50 euros). The Vegetable Jalfraisi had many vegetables: cauliflower, zucchini, peas, beans, carrot, and ginger (12 euros). All dishes are served with basmati rice that is seasoned with caraway and parsley. The flavour can be regulated to mild, medium, or hot. I loved that our dishes were decorated with star carrots, rose tomatoes and pomegranate.
