Opened in 2004, chef Nico Schuermans turned his many years of culinary adventures into one of the most successful restaurants in town. Opened daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner, their waffles are just the tip of the iceberg.

Located by Stadium Chinatown station, Chambar’s dining room mix of exposed brick and wood, with high ceilings and elegant, modern lighting. The main room has a beautifully decorated bar, a comfortable waiting area, a few high tables, and the dining room. There are also private rooms for larger parties and special occasions.

Along with a very interesting cocktail list, their extensive selection of Belgium beers is incredible. These people are not messing around! Also, their cellar is run by not one, but three women. How cool is that?

Their menu is packed with quality and creativity, there isn’t really anything I don’t recommend. But, since the point here is to tell you my opinion, I’ll go ahead and suggest the lamb shank tajine with figs and couscous (tajine d’aziz à l’agneau). There’s so much flavor in there, it’s splendid, unlike anything you’ve tasted before. The mussels too are excellent, you can’t go wrong.

Come back the next day for breakfast and order waffles. I’m a caramel fan (caramel bacon? Yes please!) but try the white chocolate pistachio rosewater topping as well, it one of combinations that are meant to be.
