Get a slice of Flanders in an Estaminet
Walking into an estaminet is like entering an old-fashioned traditional café and finding the warm and friendly atmosphere of Flemish culture.
Here, conversations are heard in a festive hullabaloo, everyone has their point of view, there’s chatting and a lot of laughter. All of this against a backdrop that is oh so Flemish, overly decorated and warm, where the food is authentic and copious. Feast your taste buds and your eyes on that of the ‘T Kasteel Hof at top of Mont Cassel, our local “Everest”, at the foot of the windmill.
It’s worth it for the view as much as for the regional culinary marvels including our famous, fragrant carbonnade (Flemish beef stew), savoury and slightly sweet.
And before you leave, you should know that there is an adjoining shop where you can buy excellent local products.
