When hungry one should go to the street known for its Turkish pizza restaurants for lunch or dinner. The Haachtsesteenweg, at Saint-Josse, near the Botanique, has a lot of Turkish run pizzeria’s.
The lights are bright, the staff is quick and the pizza’s are one of the best in the area.
Another good one is more in the middle with a retro Greek decoration. There is even a fountain surrounded by white tiles and a bench with cushions in the waiting room (Metin, Chaussée de Haecht 94). There is an open furnace and you can watch the cook prepare the orders in the open style kitchen.You can also opt for a lentils soup or salad as a starter.
The area is growing fast with new buildings rising like mushrooms and the advent of various cultural events taking place in St. Josse, and the pizza’s remain exquisite!
