Tatar Brussels – Tartars in all forms and cocktails

Tatar was born with the intent to bring together a fine cuisine that mixes Mediterranean and Japanese tastes and mixology. Cocktails wise, I chose Osaka!

Being a great tartars lover, I couldn’t miss a visit to Tatar. Little did I know that getting a reservation was not a piece of cake. The lucky day came on a Wednesday evening in June, blessed by good weather. A simple but elegant décor, where wooden tables and bricks on the wall, paired with shiny green tiles, welcome you.

Tatar was born with the intent to bring together a fine cuisine that mixes Mediterranean and Japanese tastes, and mixology. Therefore, our cocktail was the first ‘dish’ we ordered. My choice fell on the Osaka: vodka, peppermint sake, oolong tea and cucumber. Let’s just say one of the best cocktails I had in Brussels. And it's definitely the right way to start the dinner.

I must admit: this was one of the most interesting menus I had ever had to navigate. Luckily, I brought with me the right company to share different plates. We ordered a starter to share, which included soft wagyu meat and oysters, and then we tried both a sea bream tartar and a beef tartar à la Coréen. Everything was just mind-blowing. Both fish and meat were accurately marinated and brought an explosion of taste that would be very hard to forget. The menu also tempted us with a fresh cheesecake with bay leaf, kumquat and pollen, to conclude the dinner. The overall experience was great and definitely made Tartar a new must-go address to keep in mind for upcoming special dinner plans.
