Delicious breakfast but room for improvement with regards to service: Salon de Thé Claude (29. July 2018)

More randomly than anything else we stumbled upon the Salon de Thé Claude – mostly because there were a lot of people visibly enjoying their breakfast. So, I decided to do the same and ordered the “Claude’s Breakfast (glass of Cava, freshly squeezed orange juice, croissant, butter, jam, bread, soft boiled egg, yoghurt, ham/cheese, smoked […]

Surprisingly delicious burgers: Restaurant Five Guys (28. July 2018)

I heard a lot about ‘Five Guys’ and have seen the place a couple of times in Dubai but never actually managed to get there and try their burgers. Finally, it was the time to try. The “bacon cheeseburger” (EUR 11.00) is nothing but a pure sin. And a delicious one. The cheese could melt […]

Lovely service but not so great atmosphere: Restaurant Bianconero (27. July 2018)

Lovely service but not so great atmosphere: Restaurant Bianconero (27. July 2018)

The “bruschetta” was offered by the restaurant as a starter which was definitely better than I had expected as the tomatoes were quite aromatic and flavourful. The “mellanzane con burrata y pesto” (EUR 14.00) didn’t look too appealing at first but it was actually surprisingly rich and aromatic. A bit thick due to the molten […]

True Belgian dinner experience with service improvement potential: Restaurant Stirwen (19. December 2016)

From an overall perspective, dining at the Stirwen is something I can definitely recommend. However, there are a couple of things where the restaurant has room for improvement. I had booked a table just shortly before showing up and it was not a problem getting one (probably, the fact that it was a Monday evening […]

Lovely Italian wine bar with great lunch offering: Restaurant Winehouse Osteria (19. December 2016)

I am usually not going to Italian restaurants unless I’m in Italy (or maybe in my hometown) but given I didn’t have breakfast, had done a walking tour in the cold, and last but not least was hungry as hell, I decided to go to the closest good place (according to TripAdvisor, #4 in Brussels) […]

Below average Belgian food: Restaurant L’Esprit de Sel Brasserie (18. December 2016)

Below average Belgian food: Restaurant L’Esprit de Sel Brasserie (18. December 2016)

The restaurant was recommended to me so I decided to give it a try – but frankly speaking, it was quite a disappointment. I went for the “monthly menu” (EUR 34.00) which started with a “lobster bisque with Irish whiskey”. The bisque was too watery and tasted like sea much more than actual lobster. At […]

28. June 2015: Friterie Chez Georgette

If you are starving and are incredibly thirsty, the “Friterie Chez Georgette” is definitely the place to go. I went for the “French Fries” (EUR 4.50) with “Ketchup” (EUR 0.60) and “Sauce Tartare” (EUR 1.00). The French fries are super crispy and good in tasty – as simple as it is, as good the fries […]

27. June 2015: Restaurant L’Autre Grain

I kind of randomly encountered this restaurant looking for a place which was close to the hotel I stayed at and through randomly google mapping I found “L’Autre Grain”. When you find the place make sure to not walk by – as the entrance is not as visible as it could and should be. However, […]
