‘T Werftje – Zeebrugge 

Every single person in Belgium knows ‘t Werftje. This authentic bar is hidden in between the Harbour channels of Zeebrugge, a city among the Belgian coastline. Here they serve the most gorgious shrimp croquettes. People come from far just for these amazing local deliscious croquettes. This place has some history. The third generation is now in…

Babo’s burgers – Leuven

Burgerbars are popping up in Leuven. You just tried a new one, and there’s another one. Babo’s burger bar just opened so we gave it a try. The staff was very friendly, and we had a really nice evening. The place was full, but it feels like there was room to add more tables. Being…

Le Deuxième élément – Brussels

You know the Thai restaurants that serve the real stuff, the authentic Thai food? If so, you probably also know the Thai restaurants that create new Thai dishes. They use local flavors or experiment in many ways.  It’s not always easy to find the first ones, nor find a good one of the latter in…

Noordzee – Brussels

Fishbar Noordzee is one of our favorite places in Brussels.   This fish shop has a bar, some standing tables across and enthusiastic staff. They serve super fresh fish streetfood.Go there for lunch or dinner on sunny days. You’ll find some die-hards from the moment it stops freezing and it doesn’t rain. The food is too…

Divina Commedia – Leuven

After going to the market for grocery shopping, we got hungry. In the mood for good Italian food. So we tried Divina Commedia, an italian restaurant in the centre of Leuven. It’s not new, we just didn’t gave it a chance yet. And in the end it was clear we are not going to give…

Thelma – Leuven

On the way to one of my favorite shops in Leuven, another window made me stop. At first glance it looked like another shop, but the sign contradicted this. “Thelma, coffee and design” Two super sweet ladies behind the counter make you home baked food, coffee, juices and much more. The decor is Kinfolk-like, which…

BÚN – Antwerp

Their kitchen is open all day, but they only take reservations from 8PM onwards. So we jumped in at 7PM and got 2 places, at the bar. Our favourite place. We only got until 8PM, because our seats where booked, they told us. But we agreed. It was tight, but we enjoyed our meals until the…

Humphrey – Brussels

When the sous-chef of Noma (once the best restaurant in the world according to several ‘lists’) comes to your hometown and opens a restaurant ,you book the first table you can get. At least that’s what I did when I read the news. We went on a Monday evening in the 2nd or 3rd week…

Koffie en Staal – Leuven

Whoaw! How comfortable it is to have a coffee shop just around the corner. We jumped out of bed on Saturday morning. We showered, and locked the door behind us to have breakfast outside. Koffie en Staal is situated a little bit out of the center of Leuven, in the Mechelsestraat. This neighborhood didn’t yet…

Nanaban – Zaventem

In our, completely biased, opinion this is the best Ramen place outside of Japan… by far. It’s small, quiet, no fancy decor, cheap and boy oh boy the food is divine! A small menu (but that’s in most case a good sign) and all ramen cost 12 Euro or 13 Euro.  Whatever you take you…
