Opened a few years ago, Mamma Roma is one of the meeting points for quick 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 not the typical Italian sliced pizza, and the tastes are adapted to an international crowd, but it’s good and a change from a sandwich or a kebab. 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 closing, all pizzas are 50% off 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: There are a few branches in Paris too!!
