In the gastronomic and commercial desert around the South Station of Brussels, a bright and tasty oasis has recently opened to satisfy the needs of commuters, travellers and local office workers. The new ‘mammouth’ is actually a cosy place, which has been decorated in the concrete and pale wood palette we associate with Scandinavia.
This place was set up by two sisters after a crowdfunding campaign and caters mainly to the city’s lunch crowd. It offers a changing menu of soups, salads, quiches and baked goods that reflect the best and freshest ingredients of each season. The food is homemade, interesting and very reasonably priced.
If you’re not able to pop in for lunch, or just not that hungry, you can always sit for a coffee or tea and one of their delicious cakes and muffins. Last time I went in I had an excellent Tarte aux Noix that I hope to find again.
