Dear people of Brussels, grab your coats! Tonight, we are leaving on a trip.
A Japanese restaurant in Ixelles
The Izaka-ya in Ixelles is a small and typically Japanese canteen. This restaurant offers Japanese cuisine worthy of true country snacks : sushi, crunchy vegetables, fried chicken nuggets, breaded pork, green tea ice cream ... The Japanese community in Brussels is wanting more !
Stunning Italian cuisine in Uccle
The whole of Saint-Gilles mourns the Monticelli. Newly installed in Uccle, this family restaurant is the right choice for those Brussels trendsetters. Enter the restaurant to experience the most stunning traditional Italian cuisine of the capital. All at an affordable price, in a friendly and unfussy atmosphere. No table available at Monticelli ? Console yourself at Aglio e Olio, provided you aren’t scared of garlic!
Folk atmosphere of a Lebanese restaurant at the Bascule
There are several Lebanese restaurants in Brussels. But the food, hospitality and atmosphere of O Liban are probably making it one of the best. Try the feta cheese or minced meat manakeesh, the monajanat or mezza while enjoying the Eastern dancing show put on every weekend. The evening will be hot!
América Latina : Delicioso !
Sea bream grilled with butter and passion fruit accompanied by a small glass of house Caipirinha, anyone? At La Cantina, Maryangela prepares Brazilian specialties to die for. At noon, take your plate and serve yourself with anything that you like from the kitchen. The price is decided by weight. Another marvel of its kind is the Argentinean kitchen of Mi Tango in the European quarter. Fiorenzo prepares an Argentine steak like no one else.
Ethiopian cuisine at Toukoul
Have you ever tried Ethiopian food? Never? At Toukoul, you will discover a new way of eating. Forget knives and forks, you will eat with millet pancakes which serve both as plates and as edible utensils. And what matters most in Ethiopia is the sharing of the food! You will find under your nose one large dish in which the whole table will fish for rather delicious food!
Dreaming of snowy mountains at the edge of Lake Léman, of fondues, of raclettes and Grisons meat to digest by the fire? The Swiss restaurant R du temps offers a typical mountain meal. What better way to build strength to climb the highest peaks of Etterbeek…
Back under the sunlight of the tropics, you will smell the fragrant cuisine of coconut, ginger, sweet curry, pepper, vanilla, cinnamon... Madagasikara, the chef honors the national drink: rum! Come and taste the camarons (prawns) flambéed in Madagascar rum in a warm and exotic setting.
