Bitte ein Bit

Posted by spacemonkey99 on April 14, 2010

I am surprised at how few German restaurants there are in Brussels.  Actually, I know of only two, one in the Schuman area, and another in Wezembeek Oppem, which technically is no longer Brussels.  I frequent Maxburg,  located in the Schuman area.  The food is good, hearty, and well worth the price.  The main attraction is schnitzel, of which there are quite a few varieties including Wiener, Jaeger, Milanese, and with various other sauces (10-15 euros depending which style).  It comes with bratkartoffeln (fried potatoes with onion) and a good-sized bowl of salad.  They also have affordable daily specials which change each week (8-10 euros).  Maxburg also serves Bitburger, a well-known German beer hard to come by elsewhere in Brussels.  The restaurant is small, and includes a small bar seating area.  Sometimes, when the crowd gets rowdy, it can be a bit too small.  Generally you can get a table without a reservation.
