L'amour fou

Great hamburger and brunch place in Ixelles, right by the town-hall. I happened to be there for what must have been a menu photoshoot since dozens of delicious dishes disappeared as swiftly as they were presented to the photographer on call.
Cheeseburger with bacon and extra cheese sounds sinful but is Jason's very favorite dish there.

Also look up when visiting Brussels

Near the Palace of Justice and across the street from the Church Notre Dame du Sablon in Brussels, the small park at the Petit Salon/ Kleine Zavel is surrounded by columns with bronze statues representing the guilds and craftsmen in appropriate attire and carrying their tools. 
A little jewel.

The pains of waiting in line at the town hall alleviated by the pleasures of social media.
