The first detail I discovered about the neighborhood I was going to live in: a step away I could find the best frites in the whole of Brussels.
Maison Antoine is widely known as one of the best places for French fries made from fresh potatoes, and although I can’t be the best judge on this typical Belgian food, I admit they are very good, just perfect when you add any of those dozen of sauces available. Do try them with one of the typical Belgian sauces: andalous or cocktail. Never with ketchup, please!
What I also find very attractive is the deal they made with the pubs around the square. If you see a “happy cone” on display in the windows of the pubs, you can be sure that they are happy to serve you a beer while you eat your “cone” of frites: very convenient!
