Bite Me, Brussels.

Reviewing food for the foreigners, without all the fluff.

No black peppers in this Thai

Posted by rachelinbxl on April 17, 2011

This post has been chilling in my draft section for a very long time. I fell behind on posts recently, what with winter and work. We tried this thai restaurant in 2010. I’ve always wanted to go and eat there since a wine tasting held by the excellent wine shop Mig’s World Wines 2 doors up made use of the Thai restaurant and they had free snacks on offer that were very tasty. I finally made it 2 years later.
The staff were very welcoming – we were the first customers to arrive that evening, since we were waiting for it to open. They seated us at the back next to the balcony where a black pepper plant was growing. These peppers are so hot I don’t think you can eat them – it was funny to see it growing outside in Belgium. We were 5 people and we ordered a variety of food. The problem with not posting this earlier is that I don’t remember the names of what we ordered. What I can say is that I tested all the dishes and, whilst not as spicy as I am sure it would be in Thailand, the blend of spices was very good and the result was really excellent. We all had enough to eat and enjoyed the atmosphere. The wine was also pleasant! Sorry not to be able to give more details, but let this serve to whet your appetite. There are plenty of good Thai places near the Bourse, but this one at Stephanie is worth it if you are in the area. Definitely 20 times better than either the Wasabi sushi place or the new ‘Sushis’ takeaway further up Chaussee de Charleroi that both serve very mediocre sushi.
