Yaki Restaurant, Brussels

On Sunday, we decided we wanted something spicy and Asian for lunch. At the time we were near the Winter Market at St. Catherine's, which is close to a cluster of Chinese and Asian restaurants. We looked around, read several menus, dithered for a while and then opted for Yaki, a Thai-Vietnamese restaurant on Visverkopersstraat.

It's a small restaurant with an open kitchen or cooking area where you can watch the chefs at work. The aroma in the air was delicious and the menu offered plenty of choices, at good prices. We went for a mixed dim sum starter and Tom Kha soup - both of which turned out to be generously portioned and very warming on a cold winter day.

Mains were beef stir-fried with Thai basil and spicy sauce, which came served with a fried egg on top. Mixing the yolk into the stir-fry resulted in a lovely experience. Our other main of duck in red curry was also fragrant and tasty.

Yaki was an excellent find, with tasty food at good prices. Well recommended.
