Fruit smoothie better than fish sauce

A nice glass of freshly squeezed kiwi and orange juice can be found right down Anspach at El Metteko.  Visit it on a weekend afternoon when the place is empty and quieter, so you can either relax or get some work done.

The smoothie was better than this whitefish dish (~10 euros).  The fish itself was flaky and tender, with a great taste, but that sauce was much too salty.

Go for the smoothie and peaceful view of the street.  At night the place is a bar and must be reviewed in another entry…

Take a book.

Posted by spacemonkey99 on February 16, 2009

Have you been looking for that little, cozy cafe where you can take your laptop/newspaper/book to relax with a hot cuppa or a light snack such as a yummy bagel?  I haven’t been paid to write this, I just enjoyed Cafe Modele, close to the Compte de Flandre metro stop, immensely.  There is a pleasant view of the canal and not only were there others with their laptops/newspapers/books relaxing (free wifi by the way) but the place is 100% non-smoking and their prices are great. Salad bowls piled high (4.10-8.50 euros) and sandwiches and bagels (3.50-5.50 euros) are serviced until 17.00 and warm dishes such as couscous and lasagne until 22.00.  Good coffee (1.70-2.70 euros) and freshly squeezed juices (2.30-3.30 euros) makes this place great for a lazy Sunday afternoon. The cafe is across the street from the bar Walvis, and apparently owned by the same person as well.

This smoothie juice box product is available in multiple gas stations around Europe.   What’s the verdict?  Brucru says: Apparently, it’s: Eh. 

Not bad, but not as good as the packaging might make you think.
