There are only a few restaurants in Antwerp that offer Tibetan food, but Kunthun 2 must be one of my favorites. It’s tucked away in a residential neighborhood, on a busy shopping street, so you might want to look up the directions before going there. Oh and make a reservation, because everyone wants to eat their world-famous momos now.
A mowhat? Momo is a dumpling with a spoonful of stuffing wrapped in dough. You can order them steamed or fried. The first being the healthier option, and the latter tastes like heaven. You can go for chicken, pork, shrimp, or veggie. Another amazing starter are the steamed buns with pork filling. Finger licking good! Don’t forget to leave some room for the amazing main courses. My favorites are the spicy chicken (order some plain rice to make digestion a little easier * wink *), the stir-fried minced pork with sauerkraut, and the spicy ravioli soup.
The interior is a bit what you might expect of an Asian restaurant, and I don’t mean that in a bad way. The best restaurants in town have simple yet colorful decorations with the TV on. If you are lucky enough, you might get a glimpse of the chef who steers the pots. He looks like a warrior straight out of an action movie. And he kind of is. He used to cook for monks in a cloister. This must be the reason why everything tastes so good, right?!
