      Le Perroquet: A tasty and affordable treat in Brussels!

      27th June 2024

      Located a stone's throw from Place du Sablon, Le Perroquet is a true haven of peace for foodies. This restaurant, with a warm and relaxed atmosphere, offers a wide variety of pitas filled with fresh, quality products.

      I had the opportunity to test their vegetarian pita, and II can tell you that it was a real delight! The vegetables were perfectly cooked, the sauce was flavorful and the pita was nicely crispy. The portions are also very generous, which is a significant plus.

      Price-wise, it is more than reasonable, making it an ideal address for a quick and economical meal. Too bad the default dish is missing fries…

      The service is fast and efficient, and the staff is always smiling and welcoming.
