Despite the current climate, Brussels' catering industry continues to be entrepreneurial. Sample these six new establishments at home.
Mine Madeh – 390 Chaussee de Wavre, 1040 Etterbeek
A crispy roll filled with grilled vegetables and a mix of beef and lamb mince, what more could you want? Mine Madeh, the youngest child of chef Georges Baghdi Sar (My Tannour and C'Chiccounou), stays true to the tradition of Syrian street food. Takeaway and home delivery.
Rambo – 7 Rue Washington, 1050 Ixelles
At Rambo there is only one item on the menu, but what an item it is: the smash burger. Available in three variations, with or without chips. This fast food concept is brought to you by five guys who already caused a stir at Old Boy, Chez Richard, Chez Franz and BOLD. Bon appetit.
GABRĪELLA – 666 Chaussee de Saint-Job, 1180 Uccle
Gabriella, little sister of CŎCĪNA and Bistro Nazionale, is a small Italian grocery shop with a wide selection of all kinds of top Italian products: foccacia, fine meats, pasta, lasagne, mozzarella di buffala...
Take away. Order at the shop or online.
L’Enfant Terrible – 666 Chausse de Saint-Job, 1180 Uccle
L'Enfant Terrible brings its unique atmosphere to you. The menu includes aperitif boards with charcuterie and croquettes to share, and a Spotify playlist to sing along with loudly as you do in the restaurant. Take away, and home delivery for Uccle and Ixelles.
Kroket – 14 Rue Eugène Cattoir, 1050 Ixelles
The name says it all really. This is the place to go for the best shrimp, fish and meat croquette. What do you think about the cheese croquette from Saint-Octave? Everything you need for a delicious Belgian evening.
Maison Lavoisier – 21 Rue Ferdinand Lenoir, 1090 Jette
Maison Lavoisier moved to Jette in early December 2020. Nothing else has changed, though and you can still come here for artisan chocolates and pastries. Don't forget to order.
