Go veggie! - Eat vegetarian food in Ostend

Fortunately the time time when vegetarians had to be content with a few carrots and a lettuce leaf, is a thing of the past. Nowadays, vegetables play a prominent part in every menu and  having a weekly veggie meal became the culinary standard. This also applies to Ostend. So, let’s all become flexitarians!


Veggie fans with a love for Italian food know where to find Sassy’s. You will find vegetarian and vegan stone-baked pizzas, whole wheat spaghetti with tempeh sauce, pizza with chicory, tofu gyros and Brie cheese. Something different indeed. Meat lovers will find what they desire as well. Sassy’s has just what they need. The finishing touch on your menu? Healthy, homemade desserts. Ricotta cheesecake with blueberries, a vegan carrot cake with soy cream or a brownie cheesecake. Doubt no more… Must try! The spicy mushroom pasta, whole wheat penne, mushrooms in soy cream, lentils, broccoli and … chilli!

Whether you are a vegetarian or not, from the day’s dawn you will find the same flexible possibilities in the Passe-vite. Start your day with a soft-boiled egg and croutons or an egg sunny-side up with bacon. At lunch time, take quinoa with grilled maize, mango, tomatoes, avocado, fresh spices and feta cheese or a salad with smoked eel, pickled cauliflower, red beet and curry while your company chooses a Thai beef salad. Our advice is to come back and try everything at least once. Must try! The crispy fish sticks with homemade tartar sauce.
