With the huge percentage of expats in Brussels (over 60%), it’s easy to find great international food in the city, especially from other European Countries. Spain is well represented here, with a variety of great Spanish restaurants and tapas bars. One of my favourites is Tapas Y Mas.
This restaurant is always bustling and with a wide variety of great tasting tapas and delicious cocktails, it’s easy to see why.
The table was heaving with tapas-goodness when our party of four visited. Favourites like Patatas Bravas and Tortilla were dished up beside chicken, calamari and shrimp dishes. We even had one non-Spanish twist – poutine. As Canadians we couldn’t resist, but were curious how it ended up on the menu. After a conversation with the French-Canadian-Spanish staff members... we figured it out.
Tapas Y Mas makes a great getaway from traditional Belgian food and offers a taste of the friendly South.
