“• Matonge - Little Zaire / Little Africa As the capital of Europe, Brussels is naturally a melting pot of different cultures from all over the world. If you're into multiculturalism and also like to try something new from a culinary point of view, drop by in Klein Zaire. Officially called the Brussels trendy quarter Matonge and lies south-southwest of the quarter Europèen between the Parc du Cinquantenaire and the Parc du Bruxelle. The most prominent metro station is the Porte de Namur, where lines 2 and 6 stop. There are African specialties such as crocodile meat and national dishes from all corners of the continent. Arrange a rendez-vous at Saint-Boniface Church The beautiful square with the church all lit up in the evening and the buzzing restaurants around make for a great rendez-vous point. If you feel like a relaxed after-work drink, check out the neighborhood’s favorite L’Ultime Atome — a classic Belgian brasserie with an easy-going atmosphere and a clever name, which makes it all the more charming. Or you can grab dinner at one of the many restaurants offering everything from traditional Belgian to Asian cuisine. Go to Le Clan des Belges for a vintage feel and Belgian specialties, or get the best moules-frites at Au Vieux Bruxelles. You can indulge in Japanese specialties in Little Tokyo or Hana, burgers at Le Comptoir.”
