Little Tokyo is the makes the place Saint-Boniface look so much brighter. Located in the old photo store Chez Campion, the place is perfect for a restaurant : it’s big and filled with light, which we’d never have guessed just a few months before.

A nice logo, a pretty storefront, and a cool project : to bring together in one spas a tea-room and a quality florist. And it’s perfect.

The place is small and cosy, located on the ground floor of an old Belgian house. Sara and Nicolas, both trained as florist, decided to join flowers and good food in a place that felt just like home, perfect for tea, lunch or brunch on sundays.

It was two weeks ago, it was already too long ago. We’d been invited at The Hotel for the weekend, to try out their new Detox Pack. Think detox, think spa, massage and lying around doing pretty much nothing. Perfect program. And as the hotel was only a few streets away from both our houses, we thought we might as much do this seriously, and bring our whole house with us : running shoes, computers, swimsuits, photo equipment : all we needed for a relaxation weekend while working on Brussel’s Kitchen. Best plan ever.

Being a huge fan of Dim Sum ever since the four years I lived in China, Yauatcha was on my must-try list when we stopped in London for a short weekend.
I’d already told you about my experience in the Dim Sum palace Maxim’s in Hong-Kong here.
