Food - Paradise City 2018

Food

We believe that good music tastes even better when accompanied by good food! Our food trucks serve delicious food with minimum impact on the environment. Ingredients are seasonal and biological, served in compostable tablewear. The menus are mostly vegetarian, but there is also room for sustainably caught fish. What’s more, all these various food trucks are joining forces to source their ingredients locally.

Moreover, this year SAN will curate the menu at the Restaurant of Paradise City. Here is a little teaser…


SAN Restaurant

This year SAN will curate the menu at the Restaurant of Paradise City. The gastronomic headliner will be Sang Hoon Degeimbre, who will apply his SAN restaurant’ s concept to the pop up restaurant of the festival. Like last year this restaurant will be located on a breathtaking spot on the castle peninsula, between the castle and the Orangery with a stunning view on the water and the main stage. Sang Hoon Degeimbre has always strived to offer a sustainable gastronomy, which is in perfect harmony with the values of the festival. So we were really thrilled when they accepted to host the restaurant this year with SAN.
SAN present a very refined cuisine in bowls instead of plates and as only cutlery a big spoon. The menu proposed for Paradise City will be offered for the price of 99 euros and will be composed of a cocktail with amuse bouche as well as three courses.

Sustainable gastronomy at its best. 75% of all spots are already booked, so be quick and book the last chairs!

Veggie Balls & Glory

Nothing is better than an old fashioned, handmade Flemish meatball? Yes there is: handmade vegetarian balls! These balls are anything but common; Wim Ballieu has even won awards with these balls filled with love and everything he likes himself. Balls & Glory will serve you the world’s best vegetarian an vegan balls of an honest origin on Paradise City festival. Can’t miss this on earth!


Dutch Weed Burger

The Dutch Weed Burger is one of the healthiest burgers on the planet, with seaweed as the key flavour maker. The juicy patty is made of briny soy shreds and Royal Kombu, a tasty and healthy winter weed, sustainably cultivated in the Dutch region of Zeeland. The crispy O-mega bun colours bright green, due to the superfood chlorella, a microalgae packed with nutritious proteins and Omega acids. The finishing taste touch is done by their Sea Sauce, enriched with Sea Lettuce, a fresh summer weed that brings a nice freshness to this healthy snack. The burger is vegetarian, vegan, kosher and halal.


Jean sur Mer

Jean Sur Mer is one of the pioneers on the Belgian Food Truck scene. The love of the sea, its salt air and all the good that comes out of it he harbored from an early age. Think about Fish and chips or tasty brandade of smoked mackerel, soft cooked egg and grey shrimps. They serve only seasonal fish, sustainably caught and really fresh! As they say: “Don’t go to Jean Sur Mer if you’re looking for a weekday caterer. In fact, the only grey at Jean’s foodtruck are the fresh peeled shrimps!”


Spoon

“Fast and healthy makes happy” is what they think at Spoon. Out of a real ambulance they serve soups, wraps and quiches. The founders worked in the corporate world for years and there it became clear how rarely you can find a truly good and healthy lunch. That should be different! Nowadays they cook delicious and healthy food with fresh ingredients. And it is super local: with their roots in Steenokkerzeel, the festival is literally their back garden! For our citizens they created the “Sweet Paradise fries”: sweet potatoe fries with lime mayo.


Yalla Yalla

The Lebanese sisters Mona and Dalilah have been touring the festivals together with their friend Hanne, since 2015. No nonsense authentic Lebanese streetfood at democratic prices is what they serve from behind their upcycled truck (once an old taco-trailer). These delicious traditional dishes - such as falafel, hummus, or za'ater flatbread - are vegan, veggie, and even gluten-free.


Table d’Ho

Korean at it’s Belgian best. The Korean kitchen is surprising, healthy and o so good, but however unknown to many of us. Based on authentic Korean flavors, San-Ho Park of table d’Ho creates original dishes in a refined and accessible way. For this edition of Paradise City San-Ho made a vegetarian selection such as Kimbap (Korean sushi with vegetables) or tempura.


Bavet

Bavet’s B.A. foodtruck is there to bring the spaghetti madness out of the restaurant. Bavet is made for friends and that’s what they try to achieve with their truck as well. To reach out to the customers all over the festival meadow. Bavet buys their products locally and make a strong statement against food waste. Discover the best veggie & vegan spaghetti at Paradise City!


Bugzz

BUGZZ is introducing the western world to eating insects with ‘Insecuisine’, using only locally farmed HACCP certified insects combined with locally grown seasonal products.
They strive to be ‘Julie-Proof’, a term coined due to their last amazing intern, Julie, who made sure every stage of our operation were to be ecologically friendly. So minimal waste, waste separation, sustainable energy and material sources, local seasonal products. You name it. Julie would even ask our suppliers: ‘Sir, where is your compost? I can’t seem to find it.’ BUGZZ is making the unsexy sexy with humour, quality products, and a lot of fun interaction. Come and taste their Paradise City signature dish “Hopping through Paradise”, you’ll be surprised!


Never Trust a Skinny Chef

For Laurence, living in Zemst, Paradise City is almost her back garden. So all the ingredients of her Wonderwaffles are off course very fresh and local. For Paradise City Laurence even created a signature dish called “My Bird of Paradise”. Come and taste this sweet Wonderwaffle with fruits and chocolate! Or do you prefer a salty Wonderwaffle with egg and vegetables? Surprisingly delicious and veggie.


Fritez

In Rotterdam Fritez became very popular with their concept ‘Haute Friture’: a new way of making French fries in which craftsmanship and freshness are the two most important pillars. Every bio-potato gets freshly cut and gets baked just enough to become the most perfect, gold-brown French fries you have ever tasted. Choose your kind of mayonnaise from the mayo-menu, for instance the truffle flavored one, and there it is: Haute friture. Who says French fries can’t be healthy?


The Himalaya Club

The Himalaya Club is about to take you on a culinary journey to the mountain tops of far away Tibet, the Buddhist origin of our spiritual leader Dalai Lama. Let them offer you a combination of authentic Tibetan recipes, passed along since many generations. Get surprised by the authentic Tibetan chefs, turning crispy finger food, juicy noodles, and superbly fresh veggies into the swirling sensations of Tibetan street food. Cooked and baked with surprising ease, lots of love and a touch of magic. They’ll get you completely Zen!"
