Flamingo

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on July 11, 2012 in City Centre, Drink, Eat, Sunday

Flamingo is the city’s newest and largest bar. It’s a creation by the famous bar guru Frederic Nicolay, and is a whopping 400 square metres big. It’s located at the very end of Rue de Laeken, but you won’t regret the trip ‘all the way’ there.

Garam Masala

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on July 1, 2012 in Eat, Ixelles

I love Indian food. Rogan Josh, pakoras, garlic nan bread, delicious. As I love cooking as well, I prefer to stir up my own curry rather than to get a take-away. Garam Masala is the perfect corner shop to get all the Indian ingredients.

Mexigo

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on June 7, 2012 in Eat, Ixelles

While writing this, I’m also eating some Apple Jacks. So sweet, but very more-ish. I found this box at Mexigo, a Mexican-American supermarket/deli in Ixelles.

Cook & Book

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on May 29, 2012 in Drink, Eat, Homeware, Sunday, Woluwé-St-Lambert

Named by Flavorwire as one of the twenty most beautiful book shops in the world, Cook & Book is a must visit when you’re in Woluwe. Not only for its books, but also for its café/restaurant with a huge terrace outside.

Greenwich

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on May 26, 2012 in City Centre, Drink, Eat

As a student, I spent many moments sipping coffee and reading at Greenwich. It was before the smoking ban, when white fumes circled around the many chess players in the bar. After thorough renovation works, Greenwich is back in business.

Freezy Yog

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on May 19, 2012 in City Centre, Eat

With Freezy Yog, Brussels has got its very own frozen yoghurt parlour. Topped with a fruity sauce or sprinkles, it’s a great treat on sunny days.

St Anny Food

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on May 14, 2012 in City Centre, Eat

I must have walked passed St Anny Food a thousand times, but never noticed the sign that said Chinese tearoom. Tearoom means cakes and sweet buns, so in the shop I went to please my sweet tooth.

Greenhouse

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on May 7, 2012 in Coffee, Drink, Eat, Saint-Gilles

Even though I have my favourite places to grab a coffee in the area surrounding Avenue Louise, I ended up somewhere different last week: at Greenhouse, a tea-room/eatery tucked away between the many shops on the street.

Claire Fontaine

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on May 4, 2012 in City Centre, Drink, Eat, Sunday

This old, little shop near Grand Sablon is one you’ll want to come back to. Packed with all things tasty: spices, jars with sweet and savoury contents, and a counter bulking with fresh and home-made food.

La Grande Epicerie

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on April 23, 2012 in Drink, Eat, Uccle

This luxury supermarket is located in Fort-Jaco (Uccle), an area that doesn’t feel like Brussels at all. With plenty of upscale boutiques in the area, food shopping at La Grand Epicerie feels rather fancy too.
