After a long day in Lille we were ready for dinner. I had wished to try the restaurant Bloempot, but as they were fully booked…even for months ahead I did some more research and found an organic restaurant that seemed to be nice, Pulp Kitchen! No indications on the website with recommendation to make a table reservation, so when we arrived around 19h30 they told us all tables were reserved that evening. Dissapointed we left, but then we thought of why not asking if we could eat on the bar counter ? We had been looking forward their cuisine after all….and luckily they accepted. Pourquoi pas?
As starter I had a “hoummous de lentilles à l’indienne et son tartare de pomme et chou aux noix de Brésil” topped with some sprouts. What a taste sensation…it was so delicious that I hope to find the recipe..or maybe I should e-mail them? I love lentilles…. As maindish I opted for a vegetarian plate with tempura de légumes sur riz acidulé sauce au yaourt, crème gingembre citronelle et légumes de saison. Healthy, delicious and organic….what more can you ask for?
After all the sweets I had that day in Lille I wasn’t so sure if I should finish with a dessert, but when the waitress explained their speciality is the no-cheesecake I couldn’t resist. Its a “cheesecake” without cheese…but taste like it..or even better! What its made of? Cashewnuts ;-) Creamy and so yummie..have to make this at home.
As you can see, I got loads of inspiration at Pulp Kitchen. They also offer evening courses in how to cook without lactose and gluten. unfortunately, doens’t fit with my workinghours otherwise I would have gladly attended. But for all of you visiting Lille and are looking for eating well, with food made of seasonal fresh, organic vegetables and ingredients, I highly recommend Pulp Kitchen. A bonus is that everything here is gluten-free and lactose-free. Can’t get any better. Just make sure to make a reservation in advance.
Full and delighted after our dinner we left the restaurant around 21:05 and ran to the train station to catch our train (the LAST train) to Paris..and we made it, two minutes after we got into our wagon the train started to move..in direction towards Paris.
