Beef, a Burger, and Beer at Belgian Les Brassins

Posted by Pi on April 25, 2010

Although we mentioned Les Brassins before, recently we had a chance to follow up with some photos of the things we liked there: onion soup (~5 euros), Tripel Karmeliet beer, sweet Faro Lindemans beer, lunch menu onglet beef steak (~13 euros) with stoemp and salad, the Brassins Burger with chunky fries (~13 euros), and a dame noir (~6 euros).  Nice little place.  The beer sauces are pretty good on the rabbit and beef dishes.  My worst experience is having my cut of onglet steak smell funny, but overall the food is still great, and the atmosphere is even better.

Cozy and Belgian

Posted by Pi on September 8, 2009

Three huge boulettes, or meatballs in tomato sauce, lay on my plate, accompanied by a side salad and metal bowl full of frites (9 euros).  The other foreigners around me were eating stoemp, carbonnade, and plates of mixed greens and shrimp, along with their golden beers, as the multilingual waitresses brought out the comfort food with ease and a smile.  The setting was small and cozy.  The brick walls were lined with local decor, and the inviting lighting reminded me of home.  How Belgian!  What an appropriate place for dinner during the last fading warm days of summer in Brussels.
