Kamoun Brussels – Levantine cuisine to share

The watermelon with baked halloumi and honey will make you wonder how come you didn’t put these two together before. Be prepared to stay long...

Everybody was talking about how difficult was to get a reservation at the brand new Middle Eastern restaurant in Brussels, Kamoun, Arabic for Cumin. When a friend asked me to organize a dinner before everybody left for their summer leave, I had no doubt.

Walking in, the typical scent of Middle Eastern food welcomes you. Taking a quick look around, you will notice one thing: at each table, everybody shares everything. No plates (only on request): dishes are served on baking paper from which you can take a bite of your favorite food. Let’s start with the basics: their hummus, with a unique lemony aftertaste, makes it one of the best I have ever had in Brussels. Up for a change? The watermelon with baked halloumi and honey will make you wonder how come you didn’t put these two together before. Meat and seafood options are available and ready to satisfy all different tastes at the table. All dishes are accompanied by freshly baked Challah, typical Israeli bread, so soft to even just dip it in olive oil: you won’t get enough of it. To accompany your meal, the house offers a great selection of signature cocktails, including a Middle Eastern Spritz and wines.

Just be prepared to stay long: when dinner service is coming to an end, shots (on the house) will be offered to share a toast with the whole restaurant. More of an early bird? Then do not miss out on their Brunch on weekends. Yalla!

Chou Sando – Sandwiches Japanese style

Sando is a nice nickname Japanese use for sandwiches. I love it! Sandwiches have a sauce more or less spicy and are filled with veggies and/or meat or tofu.
