Bite Me, Brussels.

Reviewing food for the foreigners, without all the fluff.

Les super filles du tram

Posted by rachelinbxl on July 29, 2011

So after all that ‘chic’ eating during the Resto Days, it was about time to go Back to Basics. I realise that burgers are not the most basic food item, especially in Brussels, but fries are included in this meal!!
Les super filles du tram near Place Flagey is by no means like McDonalds, but it is a burger joint.  I’m not sure where the name comes from, but the walls are decorated with super-hero images, on the Brussels landscape. It’s kind of funky, but not the comfiest of seats, and the tables are fairly tightly packed. I had heard the service was slow, but we had a very swift experience at 7pm on a Friday! The restaurant was fairly empty.

Big Joe

Big Joe

They do have things on the menu that are NOT burgers, and they do have vegetarian options (the veggie burger sounded really good), but we stuck to traditional and had a burger each. Next time I might have to try one of the fish burgers… I had Big Joe, because it had bacon as well as the burger, and cheese! It was a good burger (well cooked, but not overdone – the ‘medium’ that I asked for really). The bacon was not as good as in the UK, but one cannot expect that. There wasn’t a lot of salad, and they had not overdone the sauce (ketchup and mayo are available). I was especially impressed with the fries – which were really really good (and the level is high in Belgium!). I liked the flower pot method of serving them too!

Mushrooms

Mushrooms

My friend had the Mushroom Burger, which is not vegetarian but also the 100% beef patty, but with LOTS of mushroom sauce – almost too much really! They also have Chouffe on tap – which is a bonus! So beer, fries and a burger. Total of 16 euros each, which is more than McDonalds of course, but fair for how full I felt and the quality of the food. Of course a meal for two for less than 30 euros would also be good and that’s the reason this doesn’t get an A-rating.
We didn’t stay for dessert as there are good ice creams nearby, and Cafe Belga for mint tea etc….
Maybe another time. The salads on the table next to us looked tasty too, so perhaps another visit is on the cards.
