    Ma Folle de Soeur: My Crazy Sister

    by von.otter Written May 6, 2012

    “I left my carriage only once, at the first stage, and landed at half-past five in the afternoon at the Hotel de Flandres, in Brussels. It was the coldest day there had been this winter, and was growing colder the whole day. The ground was covered with one sheet of snow the whole way, though not anywhere three inches deep. The travelling in sledges would have been excellent.”
    — from a letter, dated 26.January.1815, John Quincy Adams wrote to Mrs. Adams

    Ma folle de soeur roughly translates from French to English as my crazy sister.

    Located near Place Stéphanie, Ma Folle de Soeur is a small restaurant with a large front window and a small front door. At lunch time, the restaurant is frequented by business people in a hurry and in the evening by couples and groups of friends. The menu, following the seasonal produce available in the market, is always being revised to reflect what is on hand. The food was a very good.

    Ma Folle de Soeur is located directly across the street from Hotel Stéphanie Manos, where we stopped for our seven-day stay in Bruxelles. We ate here on our last night in town. There is an outdoor space at the rear for dining; I would not call it a garden because it is completely concrete with only a few potted plants. It was pleasant to take our dinner there because the night was beautiful and the dining room was crowded.

    Ma Folle de Soeur is open Monday through Friday 12:00 to 14:30 and Monday to Saturday 18:30 to 20:30.

    Fin de Siecle: Real Belgian Food at Decent Prices.

    by Diane_Ash Written Jun 7, 2012

    When i was living in Brussels, this was absolutely my favorite restaurant. The menu offers only real belgian meals, the way my mother would make it.

    You can't make reservations and the place can get pretty crowded in the evening, though we never had to wait too long.

    Favorite Dish: My favourite dish was the 'stoemp': mashed potatoes with sausage and some sause i don't remember the name of.

    Beer Mania: A paradise for true beers

    by lichinga Updated Jun 10, 2012

    Light food is served as accompanying plates to the very core business, that is "Beers", with capital "B". Belgium is maybe a paradise for the incredible variety of beers and in Beer Mania there's also one extra label you won't find so easily around: Mea Culpa is brewed by the owner himself using 10 specialingredients to add flavours (not excessive!) to the traditional malt beer.

    Favorite Dish: Kriek...maybe not a "pure" beer, but I adore it.

    Restaurant District near Grand Place

    by Ewingjr98 Written Jan 16, 2005

    In the small back alleys around the Grand Place you will find dozens of restaurants packed in side-by-side. Most are somewhat touristy and are famous for their food on display in the street and the hawkers that will stand in front of each business trying to round up customers.

    Stuffed pheasant?

    by kylian74 Updated Jan 16, 2004

    It was a cold december afternoon..We were in Brussels just for nothing..I mean to see what's going on in the city, spotting tourist, check Manneke Pis if he's wearing a new attire and have some drinks, no alcohol for me and Kyle..It was hot chocolate and a coffee, For hubby was a glass of Duvel but
    I notice that they serve their own beer too that cant' find in the market.
    The Cafe was full, all tables was occupied, lucky to find one for us that time...it was a real cozy one.
    I apologize, I couldn't remember the cafe's name.

    Chez Pierre has the perfect atmosphere. The servers are attentive, but left us alone so we were able to eat our dinner without hurrying. They have a fabulous wine list!

    Favorite Dish: Waterzooi - the first time I ever ate this soup was at Chez Pierre

    Grand Café connected with the chic looking entrance of Hotel Metropole. Busy and big place, lovely old interior, arrogant service, high prices (2 euro 50 for a coffee).

    Next morning we found ourselves in the Beenhouwer straat again, on our way to the chocolate museum. I saw that deliveries to restaurants were simply left at the door: French bread, oysters, shrimp...
