Opened a few years ago, Mamma Roma is one of the meeting points for quick and healthy food in town for any time of the day. There are now 6 shops in Brussels: 4 are located near 4 of the main apero squares in town (Chatelain, Flagey, Jourdan and St Gilles Parvis), 1 (Bondael) in the university area and 1 right in the center next to St. Gery. They serve sliced pizza (pizza al taglio) in 10 or more different flavors.
You choose which one, you choose how much and there you are: your quick dinner is ready. It’s good, really, I’m Italian and I have some knowledge about pizza. It’s cheap too. The ‘lunch’ is 2 slices plus a drink, and it’s just € 8.90 and all day long you can have a dessert menu (2 slices, 1 dessert and a drink) for € 11.90. Of course it’s possible to take away, and if you get there 1 hour before closure, all pizzas are 50% the price!
The only downside… it’s always crowded. My favourite is the one in pl. Jourdan: it’s bigger and has a nice terrace for the summer.
PS: They’ve now opened one branch in Paris too!!
