Brussels is a multicultural city! And we are not just talking about the tourists from all over the world who come here, but especially about its inhabitants. There are for example Turkish, Polish, African districts in town and it’s our goal this year to explore these!
If you are into everything Asian, you simply have to go to Zwarte Lievevrouwstraat 2 – 4, 1000 Brussels.
Here you will find the biggest Asian supermarket of the Belgian capital, Kam Yuen Supermarket. Anything connected to oriental cooking can be found here: noodles, rice, curries, vegetables, drinks, frozen fish, seafood, duck, frog legs and so on. There is a separate department with everything you need to cook and serve an Asian meal.
Just a couple of words of warning. Some of the vegetables are not always fresh and it’s better to check the perishable date. Staff is efficient, but not very friendly. But don’t let this spoil your shopping experience!
In the streets in this neighborhood you will find more Asian supermarkets and stores, and restaurants as well. More about that tomorrow!
