Kaiju Brussels – Casual Asian Dining

Kaiju are giant monsters featured in Japanese fantasy and science fiction films and television programs. Once I stepped into this place, it all made sense.

Lately, I have been obsessed with restaurants whose names are displayed on nice pop neon signs. Walking down Chaussée de Waterloo on a Sunday afternoon, I came across a sign saying “Kaiju”. I knew I had to google it to see what it was all about, and later I put it on my list of places to try.

The name says it all: Kaiju are giant monsters featured in Japanese fantasy and science fiction films and television programs. Once I stepped into the place, it all made sense. Kaiju welcomes you with dim lightning, and vibrant decor with pictures of Japanese comics, where you cannot help but notice a lot of Godzillas (who hasn’t watched the movie and had nightmares later?). Although the name comes from Japanese, the place offers a great selection of plates (most of which are great for sharing) from the main Asian cuisines. Be ready for Wonton Szechuan style, Baos, Fried Chicken, Nems, and a Pork belly in hoisin sauce that will just melt in your mouth. Drinks range from soft and Japanese bottled beers to signature cocktails with an Asian flavor twist. If you are hanging out with a group before a night out, or are just not sure which Asian cuisine will make your date fall in love with you, keep Kaiju on your list and you won’t be disappointed.
