Il Gelato

People in Uccle are spoilt for choice when it comes to ice cream flavours. And down Rue Vanderkindere, Glacier Zizi and Il Gelato are stiff competitors. When one day, the queue at Zizi really was way too long, I joined the shorter queue at Il Gelato.


B & S

B & S or Brother & Sister is a healthy eatery in Uccle. I’m not too keen on their baby blue interior, but their menu is delicious and I entirely agree with their tag line ‘All you feed is love’.

This huge book store is just perfect. Books, magazines, newspapers, notebooks, art, gifts, a food and coffee corner… you could easily spend hours at Filigranes. Browsing and reading at its best.

Rue Vanderkindere has seen the opening of many new businesses lately. Tea shop Thé-Rapy for instance, florist Thierry Boutemy’s new boutique, there’s a caviar shop too, and very recently, a new deli opened its doors as well. It’s called Heyndrickx ‘the way to good life’.

Freshlab in Uccle is a niche perfume and cosmetic shop. Owners Melanie and Daniel try to offer products without nasty chemicals, but only on the condition they truly work.

You know those late evenings when it’s too late to get a proper meal and a frozen pizza seems to tick the right box? On my way to get one of those, I bumped into a pizzeria, still open at 22.00. Lucky me, as the pizza was one of the best I’ve had this year.


Hotel Surplus Discount

We’ve recently moved house and I’m looking everywhere to find inspiration for the new home. On a stroll through Uccle, I couldn’t resist a quick pop-in in Hotel Surplus Discount, a furniture shop selling new and second hand hotel items.

There’s a new tea shop near the Churchill roundabout, called Thé-rapy. On the windows, you can see Sigmund Freud sip from a pink cup of tea. There are plenty of flavours to choose from, to suit your every mood.

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!

Stockline is one of those shops where you can find almost everything. Mirrors, arts & crafts material, sunscreen, curtains, a dishwasher, … And the best news of all: everything is priced cheaper than elsewhere.
