THE BELGIAN GOURMET CORNER : 25 RESTAURANTS TO RETURN TO IN BRUSSELS
The centre of Brussels is not known for its great restaurants, which are mainly designed to cater to naive tourists or undemanding late-nighters. This small oriental restaurant is an exception. Everything here is organic, cooked with great care and original. Halal, of course, though this isn’t advertised. Its subtlety enables it to win over Western palates with premium Moroccan food. The wine list is a treasure trove: very short but all natural wines from top French winemakers. The service is full of care and smiles. A great place either for a group (not too many, please) or aromantic evening.
