Nearly every French person I know is raving about Picard, a French frozen food chain store. They opened their first shop in Woluwe a while ago, a bit out of the way … but two weeks ago, they opened in the Bascule area too. So I took my freezer bag out for a walk!


Wine in the City

It’s a myth that wine shops only sell expensive bottles. With more and more specialised shops opening up, both good wine and good advice have become very accessible.

Finum is a little shop in the commune of Jette, selling all sorts of treats: chocolates, tea, whiskey, biscuits and more. It’s been there for more than 20 years, and I don’t think it’s changed much over time. Very charming.

This is a bit of a weird one, as I like and dislike it at the same time. I walked into this shop years ago, and seem to pop in every time I’m in the area. Most of the times I leave empty-handed, but on good days, there are quite some bargains to be scored.

Nice and affordable furniture is hard to find, unless you don’t mind going to Ikea and live in the same interior as everybody else. I do mind, so in my quest for chairs to go with our dining table, I ended up at Momentum.
