In some cities it can be hard to find many decent vegetarian restaurants, but Europe seems to finally be catching up with growing demand. We list the 10 best vegetarian and vegetarian-friendly restaurants in Antwerp where you can enjoy some great meat-free meals.
Any vegetarian knows that the local pizzeria can be a lifesaver when you just want a casual meal out. The pizza at Bar Italia, situated across the road from the Royal Museum for Fine Arts, offers a variety of at least five different vegetarian toppings, besides its daily suggestions, that go beyond the usual funghi (mushrooms) or quattro formaggi.

Set in Antwerp’s Jewish district, Beni Falafel has been serving up some of the freshest and tastiest falafel in the city since 1973. The small establishment offers an array of Jewish dishes and snacks, such as latke (grated potato pancake) and burekas (filo pastry filled with cheese, spinach and potatoes). A vegetarian’s snack heaven, Beni Falafel is of course best known for its falafel, served in pita bread slightly toasted with a hot iron and filled with hummus. It is open every day of the week except Saturday, respecting the Jewish day of rest.

Sweet and savory tarts are featured on their menu as well as great salads.
