Bite Me, Brussels.

Reviewing food for the foreigners, without all the fluff.

Mamma mia!

Posted by spacemonkey99 on March 4, 2009

Its a Brussels classic. And if you have been here longer than a few months and don’t know it, you’re either a hermit or don’t like pizza (the latter not being possible so must be the former)! Mamma Roma’s was originally only off of Place Flagey but they have been successful enough to have expanded to Place Chatelain and Place Jourdan as well. They have by-far the best Roman pizza in all of Brussels, and for cheap too. I eat a lot, and I never end up spending more than 7-10 euros. They have variety too and you order by the square (not the slice) so its easy to try different pizzas. Some of my favorites include the white pizza with potato and truffle sauce, the tomato and basil without cheese but oh-so much flavor, and the fresh mozzarella and cherry tomato which is juicy and delicious.

    Agree! The potato truffle pizza is definitely one of the best!

    As for locations, I would recommend the one on Place Jourdan – it’s the biggest (and newest) one with the largest selection of pizzas. The ones off Chatelain and Flagey are probably more popular because they were there first and people go there more for the people-watching and coolness factor, but if you want to get the best food and have enough room to eat, then go for Place Jourdan.
