Finally (after more than a year I know), the first part of ELT’s Brussels city guide (si si si!) is out! I had the project in mind for several months now, but couldn’t find the time to actually go, test, taste and take pictures. As I realise time won’t ever be on my side I thought I could start small and slowly grow BIG. Objective is to build a map of Brussels areas, pointing to my favorite places (to be available soon here).
So a couple of weeks ago, my Converses on, my camera in hand and my mum as companion, we went for a little tour in the growing and ever-changing Dansaert neighborhood. First stops, rue du Marché au Charbon, Prive Joke one of my favorite clothes shop (with brands like Sessun or Ba&sh) and American Vintage.
After a a couple of credit card swipes, lunch break at C’est bon, C’est belge, a typical Belgian grocery and restaurant with only a few tables. Still can’t forget the delicious ‘poulet estragon’ we had. Other place I love for lunch or coffee is L’Arrière-Cuisine already mentioned on the blog here.
Now heading to rue Antoine Dansaert, for a little spending spree between Maje, Sandro, Zadig & Voltaire, Princesse tam.tam etc. Further on, stop at La Fabrika, a great design store that opened recently. I could refurbish my whole apartment with everything they have here, relatively expensive but amazing!
Now walk to rue de Flandre with his numerous restaurants and… Pimpinelle, the new kitchen accessories store. Kind of love the atmosphere there.
Finally end the day with a gigantic smoothie at APDM (note to myself: make sure to taste their famous bagels next time, the ones I saw passing by looked definitely tempting).
Have a nice week lovelies <3
