Whatever your budget, there are restaurants in Brussels to suit every pocket and palate. Just off the densely populated Avenue Louise, De la Vigne à l'Assiette is a favorite for its tasty cuisine with a price that won't put a hole in your pocket. Enjoy signature dishes like salmon on a bed of angel hair pasta. Because most featured wines aren't expensive in markup, it is easy to accompany your meal with a suitable glass. This no-frills restaurant may not have chandeliers and crystal wine glasses, but the food is guaranteed to tickle your taste buds.
Brasserie Mérode is the perfect place to stop by after a stroll through the leafy Etterbeek district of Brussels. Don't be surprised if you see a local reading a book, while sipping on delicious dark chocolate and whipped cream, while his dog lounges around by the comfortable chairs. Traditional Belgian specialties are prepared with a slight twist and announced daily on a conventional blackboard menu in chalk. The open air terrace with its built-in heating attracts a large number of regulars especially during winter, when they can take in the views without being confined indoors.
It's hard to think of a Brussels eatery that is more traditional Belgian than the La Grande Porte in the down-at-the-heels Marolles district. Dark-wood furnishings, paper lanterns, marionettes hanging from the ceiling, old posters, and fashionably shabby walls, suffused with the sounds of canned French cabaret, combine to create a cozy, convivial dining space. The mostly regional main courses are served in bountiful portions. Low prices, great food, lively atmosphere -- what else could you ask for from these cheap Brussels restaurants?
