Another great opening in Woluwé! After Coquum in March, Coin Coin recently just opened on the corner of rue Jules de Trooz, just off avenue de Tervuren. Here, it’s all about simplicity, or at least that’s how the two owners intended it. In our plates though, we can see the difference straight away. Coin Coin is not an Italian restaurant, it’s a bistro for pasta lovers, says Mathieu, one of the two business partners.

We decided to try Nénu the very first day they opened. For most restaurants, that could have been a serious mistake – and maybe even a bit of drama. We walked armed with patience and tolerance, and ready to forgive mistakes – big or small – that could come or way. None of that was necessary. Yet our expectations were quite high, to say the least. Between Ötap – you’ll recognize the style of the architect without a doubt -, Old Boy and even Chinese Tuxedo in New York, for those who may be familiar, Nénu had us wait for its opening like no other restaurant had so far in Brussels.

Before setting foot in Brussels almost 5 years ago, Loïc was living in Japan. First in Okinawa, then a bit all around the country. This Italian video-artist had long become Japanese at heart before opening Tokidoki, yet he was not exactly the person we were expecting to see when we heard Japanese spoken in the kitchen. To be honest, we didn’t really know who or what to expect. On the window, you can read “Aussi ouvert qu’un transat à la plage”, which roughly translates into – as open as a sunbathing chair on the beach. Finally. We had been waiting for that opening for a while, witnessing – too late every time – pop-up brunches and one-time dinners all over the place. It’s now official, Tokidoki now welcomes customers for lunch, brunch and dinner.

David’s loud voice echoes across the room as we enter his restaurant, an hour before the beginning of service. It should simmer long enough to become a thick sauce, he says, to one of his cooks. The chef, owner of the restaurant for over 12 years now, is just as charismatic as his restaurant. What we notice after, is the bright pink Jupiler neon sign, still hung above the bar, most probably a long kept treasure from its previous owners. Then comes the aquarium, standing proud and tall in the middle of the room, giving the place a bit of a seafood or even a Chinese restaurant look.
