Last week, we shared some foodie hotspots with you. Have you managed to visit one of these places? Let us know how it was! This week we have even better news, because we have some more tips for you! Are you ready to discover tasteful and gastronomic Antwerp?
- Divin: master sommelier Sepideh Sedaghatnia has Iranian roots. She’s been living in Belgium since she was 17. She was elected “Sommelier of the Year” in 2013 and is the author of the book 69 things you’ve always wanted to know about wine. Only a few months ago, “Sepi” opened her own restaurant at ‘t Zuid in Antwerp. Divin is a trendy wine bistro, where people come to enjoy the atmosphere, the music, the wine, the fingerfood, the tapas and the daily specials. Come have a seat at one of the big tables or at the counter, and experience what Divin tastes like! Verschansingstraat 5-7, Antwerpen, www.divinbysepi.be
- Plateau Royal: Philippe Hawinkel has always been into seafood. He once had a seafood wholesale store, was a cook on a private yacht and sold oysters on Antwerp markets. In June 2015, he opened his River Café & Seafood Restaurant Plateau Royal, located on the first floor of the Noorderterras, with a magnificent view on the river Scheldt. On the menu you can find a so-called “seafood plateau royal” with either 1, 2 or 3 layers. But you can order a simple fish dish as well. In short, this is the place to be for “fishie foodies”! Jordaenskaai 27, 2000 Antwerpen, plateauroyal.be
- Món means “world” in Catalan. A big oxhead sculpture, a glass-walled kitchen in the middle and a Josper charcoil oven are eyecatchers in this bistro. The Món chefs use their very own charcoil, which gives a delicate and particular taste to their homegrown meat from a farm in Stabroek (near Antwerp). Try one of their homemade sausages! Sint-Aldegondiskaai 30, 2000 Antwerpen, www.monantwerp.com
Have a great weekend! And if you happen to visit one of these place, keep us posted on your experiences :-)
