Far Eastern Promise 2: Delicious!

After my amazing yoga class, we treated ourselves!


Finding amazing vegetarian food in The Netherlands used to be difficult. But now it’s not so bad.

I wanted to write about the vegetarian places in our locality because this blog is a record for me as well as others.

Leaf restaurant has something really unusual. Though they specialise in meat substitute style food, which I wouldn’t necessarily enjoy they do it with a modern twist.

The food is very flavourful. The Buddhist angle means they don’t use onions or garlic but the food is so delicious you don’t notice.

We had particularly tasty Vietnamese style raw salad based spring rolls with sesame seeds and dipping sauce. They were rich with coriander and citrus flavour.

The duck pancakes with house sauce are crispy and juicy.

And that’s just the entrée!

Greed has taken over. The main course defeated us.

The crispy pork also has sesame seeds and goes well with fried rice and the prawns with broccoli and Thai basil.


No space for dessert!

We went home stiff, but happy.

    Here in England, whether you can find a vegetarian restaurant depends much on where you live.

    I’ve updating the Loose and Leafy Tree Followers list

    to give an idea of the geography of where our trees are. At present, I have simply said ‘Netherlands’ for you. Is that ok or do you want to be more precise? (For trees in England I’m putting counties too.)

      We are in Zuid Holland. Near The Hague. The climate is much like England.

    I’ve looked and looked but nowhere can I find a recipe to tell me what to do with all my black kale. Not fried chips. But a major meal using a lot of kale. Please!

      Oh that’s tricky. How about blanching it and freezing in batches, or maybe in place of spinach in a pie or feta tart. I’ll have to think about it.
