With all due respect to Belgian cuisine, if you – like me – ever lived in Montreal or New York, sometimes, you just need a taste of the East Coast. What a rejoice when Elbow joined the Brussels food scene, in one of my favorite hoods and street (St-Boniface/Rue de la Paix).
The experience is authentic; we are talking about an American deli counter, with the tastiest Philly cheese steaks, Italian BLT, pastrami sandwich (whyyyyy is it only served on Saturdays thought?), filter coffee refills, basic seats (take the counter ones for the ultimate experience) and an especially tasty lemonade. Total deli vibes and decor. It’s a bit of a heart-attack situation, but totally worth it.
