I have found this local on a Brussels guide. Very good food and quality, informal, there's no place to sit, but the service is really quick. The prices are in the average, not that cheap as fast food and not that expansive. I suggest it...More

I stumbled upon this place by fluke. After seeing some of the dishes and how busy it was, I figured I must try it out! The gentlemen working were super pleasant, friendly, and helpful. Even though it was extremely busy they still took the time...More
