Den Druiventros, the spot to go to if you’re looking for a nice, quiet place where you can have a delicious and honest diner. While you’re enjoying your (free!) bread and olives you can have a look at the small menu which offers a humble selection of real Flemish classic dishes such as ‘stoofvlees’ or ‘videe’. But please, do have a look at the chalkboard for the suggestions (you can also check them online on their website).
Whether I’m going there for lunch or dinner, I always pick something from the chalkboard. Every time they succeed in making the weirdest combinations taste delicious. Not into meat? The most delicious plates I’ve had there were vegetarian! If you’re having a drink before dinner, try Hugo, a beverage based on cava but with a touch of elderflower, topped off with some sparkling water and mint. Amazing! But be careful, it may taste like lemonade but once you’re outside you’ll feel the alcohol kick in.
The décor is really simple with a vintage touch. I especially like it when you can have a look into the kitchen, which is the case in this cute little restaurant. Den Druiventros is located in Borgerhout, just a few steps away from a lovely square and church, perfect for a little walk after a lovely dinner.
