Dinky croques, clean bogs and a friendly welcome at the B de la G in Brussels.
Standard food with the worst waiter of the year so far.
This was an excellent experience but not one that my credit card could handle too many times in a season. However, to have come into a womb of sophisticated Frenchness after having spent an evening watching the most turgid Europa League match since the last one in a noisy brauhaus was a most welcome thing. And this on the back of an excellent morning in Cologne's fine art museum where they had an extraordinary exhibition of Tintoretto. After that it was back to sausageland, the latex girls, Kölsch and a man with a very annoying drill in a terrible hotel bar.
A schnitzel and beer, welcome to Germany.
En route to Cologne we had a pause for lunch in Brussels. We didn’t want to wander too far so La T du M was ideal. While Bazza the Gooner made friends with the locals we took a look at the menu. A cheese sandwich at 3 euros seemed unfeasibly cheap but I ordered it…
If it wasn't for the tv this would have been an 8.
For about 12 quid for food and beer Yori offers good value if you don't want to spend too much but feel like going somewheret superior to a chain place for lunch.
