Belgium – Geraardsbergen/Grammont : Patisserie Confiserie De Clercq

Posted in Eating out, Tourism on April 13th, 2008 by Nicolas

declerq Geraardsbergen (Grammont in french) is a very interesting city in Belgium. Located not far from Brussels (40 minutes car ride), it is the host of one of the most famous Belgian history statues: Manneken Pis.

Of course; you’ll say that the Manneken Pis is located near the Grand Place of Brussels and you’d be right on this remark but there is also a statue in Geraardsbergen. This is the oldest one known in Belgium and is located in a much more quiet place in Belgium where you can enjoy the nice city “ambiance”.

While you visit the city, you might want to go into the De Clerq bakery! The place is charming and well decorated, the food is great and there are some tables on which you can accommodate in order to quietly enjoy the afternoon.

Brussels – Uccle: Le Ventre Saint Gris

Posted in Eating out, Tourism on August 20th, 2007 by Nicolas

A nice little restaurant in Uccle (Brussels).

Located in a quiet section of the Uccle “commune”, just next to the Kauwberg which is one of the most important “green space reservoir” of Brussels in which you can enjoy a great after meal “promenade”.

The Ventre Saint Gris’ experience was excellent overall, having booked in advance made it easy for the owner to accommodate our 20 persons group. The timing was good, the waiting time between ordering and being served was really amazingly fast while the quality of the servings as well as the quantity was great.

A very nice experience where you can’t be disapointed, the menu is very dynamic so be sure to check their website where you’ll find all the details.

Toulouse: Piazza Papa

Posted in Eating out, Tourism on August 20th, 2007 by Nicolas

If you’re looking for a nice little Italian restaurant in southern France, the Piazza Papa is certainly a good choice.

Located in the center of Toulouse, the chain has two other places in Montpellier and Aix en Provence. I only know the Toulouse’s place. Apart from a calid ambiance, the waiters are always very nice and let you take your time. The food is great!

I specially recommend the salmone calzone as a starter followed by the salmone pizza, but that’s just because I love salmon on a pizza! Be sure to try the Café Liégois for desert, it’s one of the best Café Liégois that I’ve ever tasted!
