I think my favourite night to actually go out is actually on a Sunday. It just feels a little bit naughty AND the bars and restaurants are far less busy. So it’s a win, win really.
I’d heard really good things about Cool Bun and wanted to see what was on the menu for vegetarians. When we arrived at their Stephanie branch, it was nearly empty, just as we like it.
We settled down with a glass of bubbles, some olives to nibble on and took a look over the menu.
It took a little while for our starters to arrive and as soon as they did we knew we should have just shared one. Although they looked impressive the onion rings were a little too greasy for my liking. Luckily the Goat Cheese Crostini more than made up for it, delicious creamy cheese on crunchy little pieces of toast, they came with a slightly sweet, slightly spicy, barbecue sauce. I polished off most of these.
After another little wait, the main attraction arrived. I hate to say this, but the falafel in my burger was just too dry, I only ate one of the three that were in my burger. This was made worse by the fact that it was covered in a Tahini sauce, which had sounded wonderful on the menu, but unfortunately didn’t work on the plate.
Luckily I was able to eat my bodyweight in fries (they weren’t the traditional Belgian frites) and Goat cheese which made up for it.
With so many other good burger places in Brussels at the moment, Cool Bun probably isn’t somewhere I would return to.
