De Noordzee / La Mer du Nord
Three fish bars rich and currently expanding due to popular demand, Noordzee is one of Brussels’ most beloved seafood concepts: no nonsense, just the best the North Sea has to offer. The original fishmonger’s counter at Sainte-Catherine was opened by Wouter and Véronique over twenty years ago and it wasn’t long before locals started lining up to guzzle oysters, shrimp croquettes and steaming fish soup in the streets over lunch. Quick, relaxed and bursting with flavor, De Noordzee has grown to include a branch on the Rue de Luxembourg and a brand-new one in the old Marolles neighbourhood. At each one, your gourmet fast food is cooked on the spot and are paired with selected white wines.
