The Black Sheep

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on November 3, 2014 in Burgers, Drink, Eat, Ixelles, Sunday

When choosing a bar for a night out, the same issue always pops up: the girls want a place where they have decent wine and cocktails, and the boys need an extensive beer menu. The Black Sheep behind Place Flagey has got both, and serves a mean burger to boot.

Now here’s a restaurant nearly everybody’s talking about. With good reason: Japanese ramen bar Kokuban is every bit as good as you’d expect.

Knees to Chin

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on September 8, 2014 in Coffee, Eat, Ixelles

Lunch on a work day usually equals a quick cheese sandwich on the go. Boring, but it does the trick. On my (rare) days off, I’d love to discover something new. And the rice paper rolls at Knees to Chin were the perfect change from my routine.

Le Typographe

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on December 23, 2013 in Homeware, Ixelles

Christmas is the time of the year we all send each other greeting cards. Some of them are ugly, some delicate, some kitsch … If you’ve had enough of that, Le Typographe sells a great alternative: quality paper ones with a simple print, handmade in Brussels.

Gazzetta

This small Italian deli is tucked away behind Avenue Louise, but well worth looking for. Coffee, Italian pastry, wine and simple food .. molto bene!

L’Amour Fou

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on November 27, 2013 in Burgers, Drink, Eat, Ixelles, Sunday

I met Luigi at L’Amour Fou and I really liked him … errrr, it. Luigi is one of the many burgers on the menu (with spinach, feta cheese and nuts). It came with sweet potato chips and crunchy coleslaw.

Garage à Manger is a new eatery, located in the old Mazda garage in Ixelles. It’s connected to second-hand book shop Pêle-Mêle on Chaussée de Waterloo as well. Books and healthy food, what’s not to like?

Kis Mad

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on October 15, 2013 in Eat, Ixelles, Saint-Gilles, Sunday

I’m not the best cook in the world. But I love to spend time in the kitchen, browse the web and books for recipes and visit shops for unusual ingredients. Kis Mad was on my radar for a while, and now I finally visited the shop.
