Travelling Sophie: Leuven part 4!

A few days ago, I went to one of my favorite cities called Leuven. About 1 year ago, I posted 3 traveling Sophie posts about Leuven. I will give you the links below my post! 😉  The city lies in the Flemish speaking part of Flanders, In Brabant & is the capital city of Brabant. Is is about 35 min by train from where I live. Leuven is very well-known for its international Catholic University, In Dutch:  ( KUL )= Katholieke Universiteit Leuven! It is one of the oldest Universities of the Low-Lands. Leuven is also famous for their brewerie, Stella Artois!! Leuven is also a great foodies destination for me & has many cool foodie restaurants, foodie shops & places where also vegetarian eating is possible. You just have to find them! I also like the variety of many tiny, some larger & cool clothing, flower shops, etc!

Here you can find SHAVT!

I went there to go to my favorite all vegan shop called SHAVT. Shavt stands for Simply Healthy And Vegan Things! You can find it on the smaller side street of the Tiensestraat. It is located in the Charles Deberiotstraat 2, 3000 Leuven. Open? Monday till Saturday from 12-18.30 h. It looks from the outside like this:


It is a smaller all vegan shop. All the things they sell here or edible & even non-edible like vegan shampoo, vegan soaps, vegan toothpastes, vegan deodorants, etc. I prefer the edible part, way more! They sell many different vegan edibles like vegan chocolates, vegan cereals, vegan burgers, based on seitan or on tofu, vegan sausages, vegan sliced sausages to put on vegan pizzas or on your sandwiches, vegan cheeses of 4 to 6 different brands like Valio, Wilmersburger, Vantastic foods’s vegan Parmesan, etc & the owner, Kobe, also makes his own cashew based spreadable cheeses. He also sells vegan food bars of the brand Naked! Just see it all for yourself!

Yummy vegan burgers, sausages, seitan steaks etc!
