World’s best vegetarian restaurants: Two Belgian establishments in top 10

We’re Smart – a Belgian organisation that highlights more ecological ways of shopping and eating out – has released this year’s Green Guide, which names the best vegetarian restaurants in the world. The top ten features two Belgian eateries.

The gastronomic guide created by Belgian chef Frank Fol lists the top 100 finest vegetarian restaurants in the world, with the most recent edition being unveiled at the Barcelona Gastronomy Forum on Tuesday.

While this year’s winner comes from the Netherlands (the Nieuwe Winkel in Nijmegen led by chef Emile van der Staak), Belgian cuisine had reason to celebrate as two restaurants from Ghent and Brussels came in fourth and tenth respectively.

Vrijmoed (by Michaal Vrijmoed) in Ghent ranked fourth, while Nicolas Decloedt’s Humus x Hortense was ranked tenth. Vrijmoed expressed his delight that “interest in vegetarian cuisine has grown considerably worldwide over the past ten years and that everyone is now convinced that it is a cuisine for the future.”

Furthermore, Amaranth located in the Flemish municipality of Merelbeke also received the Discovery Award for best newcomer, adding to the top ten finishes for Belgian restaurants.
