Sample the flavours of France, Italy, Vietnam and the United States in one place.
Can you really eat a burger, risotto, a bo bun or a rotisserie chicken all in one place? You can at Brut Market, a multi-cuisine venue located near the Bourse. The idea is to bring together four different restaurants, Mamma (Italian food), Khay (a Vietnamese canteen), Monsieur Roger (a specialist in rotisserie chicken), and Burger Wood (evidently a burger joint) to make sure everyone gets a taste of what they like.
The spot is decked with a neon sign, suspended lightbulbs and thematic corners (a rustic cabin look for the burgers, exotic wallpaper for the Vietnamese spot, and red checks for the rotisserie stand). We found the Italian menu pretty good (ciabatta with tomato confit, gorgonzola and coppa and a tiramisu for dessert, priced at €11.90) but were disappointed by the hamburger and fries. The servings of the Vietnamese salad (beef with lemongrass, chicken satay, or marinated tofu with ginger, carrot, beansprouts, onion, coriander and sesame) and the coconut chicken curry and basmati rice were surprisingly meagre given they cost €9.50 when ordered without the complete menu.
But if you happen to be in the neighbourhood, Brut Market is a decent spot for a culinary world tour.
