Frequently dubbed as Europe’s capital, Brussels is home to a diversity of immigrant communities stemming from across the world. Unsurprisingly, the city’s truly cosmopolitan character is reflected in its range of international restaurants attracting visitors and locals alike. Here we review some of the most popular.
A particularly good option for vegetarians, Mo Mo offers healthy portions of nothing less than the best of Tibetan specialities. All of the organic food served here is prepared within customers’ view, in a well lit open kitchen adorned with colorful and modern, minimalist decor. Soups, vegetarian and meat stuffed dumplings, and lots of steamed vegetables cover most of the menu, taking out of the equation the oils and heavy spices one often associates with Asian food.

Behind a less than remarkable facade in the center of Brussels, Lotus Vert serves no-frills Vietnamese and Thai food at a more than reasonable price. This may not be the most ideal place for a romantic dinner or formal evening, but there is surely something for most tastes among its wide range of vegetarian, meat and seafood dishes, soups, and noodles. Popular with regulars is the all-you-can-eat option, offering very good value for money.
