‘De bomma’ means ‘The grand-mother’ and even the interior is an ode to all the older mums our there. The name of the restaurant gives away the type of food you will eat here: Nothing fancy, nothing exotic, but good, real, simple food like all Belgians know it. Think of tomato soup, stew and rice pudding with a golden spoon.
The fun part of it all is that you can personalise your dish by combining ingredients and meals to your taste. So if you are with a larger group, everyone will find something they like, even the kids. They call it ‘Innovative tradition’ and I think that’s well put.
The service is good, helpful and friendly. If you have kids, they will get pencils to colour and draw the evening away, while you enjoy the classics with a touch of nostalgia in a nice atmosphere.
