On January 1st 2021 Cigkoftepoint Tilburg opened up. This take-away and delivery restaurant sells a vegan version of the Turkish Cigköfte. Cigköfte is normally a meat dish but Cigkoftepoint Tilburg sells a vegan version. They have three different sizes of vegan Cigkofte platters and they also sell vegan cigkofte durum. Besides the vegan Cigköfte dishes, they also sell vegan sushi. You can order separate rolls of your choice, or go for the box with all varieties.
De Kraan is a new restaurant that opened up on January 28 2021 in Club Smederij. They offer Mexican street-food for take-away and delivery. They’ve got great tacos and burritos. My tip: try the corn on the cob with cheese, it’s delicious! And I always order some nachos to go with my dinner.
Tasty Saigon is a Vietnamese restaurant that is located at the Lieve Vrouweplein. It’s a take-out and delivery restaurant that serves all kinds of dishes from Vietnam. Like the famous Bahn Mi baguette, springrolls, pho and noodles. They’re open for lunch and dinner on every day except Tuesday.
On March 1 Broodega opened up its door in the city center of Tilburg. You can find them next to Intermezzo on the Heuvelring. They sell artisan bread, sandwiches and panini’s. And delicious smoothies to go with it.
Not really a restaurant, but a great new food initiative in Tilburg. Delicious Foodboxx delivers breakfast boxes in Tilburg. You can choose between a box for 1 or for 2 people. You can send Delicious Foodboxx a DM on their Instagram account to order it. The boxes can be picked up as well, or delivered between 10am and 1pm.
Mon-O Fastfood is a new vegan fastfood restaurant in Tilburg. They opened up in March 2021 for delivery. They’re a pop-up kitchen that’ll be here for at least 5 months, but hopefully longer! They deliver mouth-watering vegan dishes like vegan burgers, vegan kapsalon and sweet potato fries.

(named after the Gend&Loos company that used to be located there) at the Ringbaan West side of the Spoorpark. It’s surrounded by the beach volley fields. So you can relax with a cold beer after playing a game of beach volley.
Softys opened up in an empty part of restaurant De Wagon in 2020. But in 2021 they’ll open up a second store in the city center of Tilburg. You’ll be able to find them on the corner of the Oude Markt and Heuvel. They open on April 2 2021.

Besides Tasty Saigon, another new Vietnamese food spot opened up in Tilburg in 2021. No. 16 is a Vietnamese catering and delivery restaurant. No. 16 used to have a pop-up restaurant in the Klasse Theater in Tilburg East in 2018, and now they’re back. They’ve got all kinds of dishes from Vietnam like spring rolls, banh mi sandwiches and Pho. They deliver in Tilburg (the Reeshof is included) on Thursdays and in Hilvarenbeek, Goirle, Berkel Enschot and Oisterwijk on Fridays.
After their success in Breda, the Carpaccio Club is coming to Tilburg in 2021. They’ll open up on the Korte Heuvel, where Ribs Factory used to be. You’ll be able to get all kinds of carpaccio’s at the Carpaccio Club Tilburg. Not only the classic carpaccio, but also variations with fish or vegetables.
The American burger chain Wayback Burgers opened up in Tilburg on April 19 2021. They already have a restaurant in Breda and Tilburg is the second city in the Netherlands where they’ve opened up. On the menu are burgers (of course) but also vegetarian burgers, fries, chicken wings and milkshakes. They’re located at the Schouwburgring and are open for delivery as well.
Green Bakery will make vegan frozen foods that you can pick up for at home. You can save the foods from Green Bakery in your freezer at home and warm up in the oven when you want to enjoy them. They’ll focus on vegan pizzas at the start.
Dadawan already has several restaurants in the Netherlands in cities like Eindhoven. They’ll open up a restaurant in Tilburg in 2021. They’ll open up in the former Midi cinema building on the Heuvelring. And the restaurant will be very unique as there will be robots as waiters!
Restaurant ZJUU will open up in the Leijpark, on the place where Restaurant Etenstijd used to be. It’ll be open for brunch and ‘borrel’ (drinks). ZJUU is a concept from Tuinhuis Culinair that you can find in Tilburg West. ZJUU hopes to open up in the summer of 2021.
Gourmet Market Central Station
Unfortunately Restaurant Eve closed down in 2020, but the good news is that in 2021 a food hall will open up on that location. The food court will be named Gourmet Market Central Station, as it’s located right next to (you’ve guessed it) the Central Station. It’s inspired by the Downtown Gourmet Market in Eindhoven. The big hall in the Spoorzone will have around 17 food stalls with different chefs. There’ll be room for 500 guests. They hope to open up in the summer of 2021.
In the former Harmoniegebouw in de Stationsstraat a new cafe/lunchroom will open up. It’ll be run by Lucas Smits, whom you might know as The Wasted Chef. Besides being a chef that you can book for a dinner at home, Lucas has a lot of experience in several restaurants in Tilburg.
