Le Conteur Brussels – Middle-Eastern Flavors

In Brussels, you can enjoy some of the best Middle Eastern food you will ever try. However, with time, it might get hard to try something new and special. When a colleague suggested having dinner at “le Conteur”, little did I know I would have discovered one of my new favorite places for Middle-Eastern cuisine.

Le Conteur is located in the city center of Brussels, just a few steps away from the renowned Grand Place. The elegant interiors that welcome you with a bar counter and an open-plan kitchen, will make you feel like you have just left Brussels and are about to enjoy your dinner in a far land. The concept is to share different plates and celebrate life: who does not like a plan like this? Dishes come with bold and rich flavors, which blend different cultures and cuisines. Our choices fell on some mezze, including a tasty paprika hummus accompanied by freshly baked bread, Octopus Mashawsha, and Chicken Mussakhan. The real star of the menu was the Chou Grillé, which came with mouth-watering feta cream and tahini: It made me rethink my hatred for greens.

The cocktails are also excellent (and on Mondays the first one is on the house). About life’s celebration: during the service, cooks and waiters join the restaurant hall to dance and make a toast (L’chaim as they say in Hebrew!) to life with a round of shots.  The perfect place to spice up your dinner plans and taste great food. To life!

Le Chat streetart – Huge cartoon wall painting

Le Chat is one of the most famous cartoons in Belgium for being cynical and very on point (and I think it perfectly embodies the Belgian way of life).

Viva Lasagna – Mouthwatering lasagna

I especially love their chicken lasagna because it takes away a little bit from the heavy pasta dish but still fulfills all of your carb cravings...

"Fritland" makes Brussels French fries (ironic, I know), but I really recommend you skip them and try a mitraillette - theirs is the best in town...
