Young, ambitious and adventurous… Jim Ophorst (or “Jimmy”, as most Asian people like to say) is a name to remember, as we expect this talented chef to achieve great things in the future. He has made the Thai island of Phuket a must visit stopover for foodies, establishing a truly unique dining concept, that just got awarded its first Michelin star. Chef Jim Ophorst is also one of the selected chefs for the 2019 The Best Chef Awards, so we paid him a visit to discover his cuisine and philosophy.
Chef Soenil Bahadoer definitely knows how to surprise and amaze the gastronomic world with his cultural melting pot of the classical French cuisine and spicy, exotic cooking. Although both styles might sound contradictory, the result is balanced and extremely tasty. But there’s one important condition to enjoy Soenil’s culinary art to the fullest: at his restaurant De Lindehof you need to open your mind and senses to experience something new and different. Soenil surely knows how to tickle the taste buds with his unique way of combining elements from Suriname, Asia and Europe in his dishes. Dining at restaurant De Lindehof is a truly fantastic journey around the culinary world, all put together in a harmonious gastronomic experience.
L’Air du Temps is situated in the middle of the fields, at a stone’s throw from Namur and Leuven in an environment that seems pretty much the epitome of ultimate tranquillity.

Here, it is not just about good food, top products and an über-professional service. The location and cuisine of Chef Sang-Hoon Degeimbre guarantee an exquisite experience.

Yes! Sunshine, balmy air and more longer days. Summer is back and we can wipe the dust off our BBQ. While the meat is absorbing the marinade and when the salads are ready, it’s time for a light snack or a starter. We choose smoked scallops with mushrooms and miso.
We decided last minute to grab the late-night movie of 10pm today, which meant that we quickly had to find a place to have a nice meal before. Fong Mei is located in the Antwerp Chinatown, close to the movie theater. They have the best dim sum in the city, which is the most important reason to go there of course.
