Whathello's good restaurants in Bruxelles

I saw threads about good restaurants in Paris but didn't see much for Bruxelles.
So here are my top ones, regardless of money spent. I'll add some recs on my best quality price ratio if people are interested.

Anderlecht Appelboom Anderlecht
outside touristy areas, need a car. Very Belgian.
Bruxelles Brouette Anderlecht
Excellent, refined.
Bruxelles Chalet de la foret Bruxelles
a one start Michelin, excellent
Bruxelles Bonbon Bruxelles
a two stars michelin (one of the top 3 restaurants in Belgium ? ) good but ....
Bruxelles Vincent Bruxelles
an institution. not expensive by Bruxelles standards and 100 meters from the Grand-Place.
Wemmel Dolce Vita Wemmel
very nice italian, outside touristy zones too.
Anderlecht New Maranello proche canal
a hole in the wall - greatest qulaity price ratio ever, in a run down area.
Bruxelles Truffe blanche Bruxelles
again a michelin - 1 star, the one I preferred.

How much does one tip at these places?

any specializing in Bruxelles Sprouts?

Best patates frites in Bruxelles?

Whathello Sep 6th, 2017 07:18 AM

You know at least one answer.
I did nt like bxl sprouts and I don't eat fries that often.
The best fries have to be ordered from a frietkot- basically a caravan.

Hiya, I googled the Dolce Vita as I didn't know where Wemmel was, and found it is closed now:

Sounds like a shame! But I will follow up some of your other recommendations next time I visit BXL. :)

- Ellis Gourmet Burger
- Be Burger
- Vismet (fish restaurant)
- Noordzee (fish shop, but you can eat here on Saturday and Sunday)
- Skievelat (cheap belgian food aimed at locals)
- Botega della pizza (reservation required)
- Kiekenkot (rotisserie chicken)
