Bodrum Palace Antwerp – Turkish food at Sint-Jansplein

restaurants
Restaurants

"Bodrum Palace" is the only real Turkish restaurant in Antwerp's streets and definitely the best. Turks and I agree: the food is extremely tasty and fresh.

Although there are many Turkish eating houses or snack bars in Antwerp's streets, Bodrum Palace is the only real Turkish restaurant. The food is extremely tasty and fresh and there is a variety of dishes on the menu. The interior is really cosy and typically Anatolian. The lights are dimmed, which always creates an intimate atmosphere. Bodrum Palace is located at the corner of Van Maerlantstraat and Sint-Jansplein and is well known for its deconstructed Kapsalon. 

The staff is very friendly and fast. Usually, I order take-out at this restaurant and while I'm waiting I'm always served Turkish tea, which is very sweet, very hot and just right to prepare my taste buds for the delicious meal. Personally, I find that Bodrum Palace serves the best Turkish food in Antwerp and I know for a fact that locals with Turkish roots also find this to be the best place for Turkish food.

Domestic – Pastries on a different level

The pastries are homemade and have that extra edge, like, for example, extra egg yolk on top of the chocolate bread that makes it that much more yummier.

"De Muze" is just around the corner of my place in Antwerp, and I do consider myself very lucky for the fact. This café has kept its atmosphere since 1964.

Beestenbos – A musical awakening in the morning

Beestenbos is an ideal pub. It has great drinks and food, on a square in the city centre yet suprisingly quiet, has live music and organises brunches.
