Yen Ping Restaurant: Chinese food in Brussels

Yen Ping restaurant, established for several years, is still undiscovered by many Brussels folk.
One reason could be that it’s tucked away down a street near the Flemish Parliament and is, therefore, frequented by plenty of lunchtime office workers but maybe not so many others living in various parts of the city.

Indian Restaurants in Brussels

Subcontinental food is becoming popular in Belgium, if the increasing number of Indian restaurants in Brussels is anything to go by. There are now about 40 in Brussels alone.
Unfortunately French gastrofascism got its garlicky fingers into Belgian culinary tradition decades ago, and anything that is not in the Larousse Gastronomique is viewed with suspicion, if not outright fear.  I met a couple in Paris once who would not go to Chinese restaurants because there was no bread on the table!  Indian cuisine is therefore adapted to local palates, which is not always a bad thing. The lower the chilli factor, the more you can taste the subtle blends of spices.

Toukoul: Ethiopian restaurant in Brussels

ethiopian restaurant brusselsWhat does the name Ethiopia conjure up for you? Maybe long-distance running - if you can name one Ethiopian it will likely be Haile Gebreselassie, marathon man par excellence. You may also think of coffee (quite likely they invented it). Oldest Christian church in the world, anyone? And going even further back, Ethiopia can stake a valid claim to be the birthplace of civilization. If that proves to be the case, then we are all Ethiopians.
