This is the closest to serving Belgian homemade meals that a restaurant can get. From simple sandwiches to moules-frites and stoofvlees in big portions, Domus‘ menu is like a homage to the homely side of Belgian cuisine. The interior feels very Flemish as well, with its dark furniture and heavy, wooden beams. The decorations on the outside walls just add to its charm. Plus, this restaurant has its own brewery.

This place serves hot dogs, but not the kind you’d expect. Würst was created with ‘haute hot dogs’ in mind. This was obviously a success – the Würst dogs are fantastic. With their unusual ingredients, like mimosa, guacamole or witlof, they are a bit pricier than your average hot dog, but the taste experience is above and beyond. Würst also has gluten-free or vegetarian options.
