What would be better in a new city than to be in a cozy little home which also happens to be a lovely restaurant run by a beautiful couple? We reached this beautiful city Bruges at around 10 am after a train journey from Brussels, and were feeling super hungry. There were of course lots of restaurants around offering different delicacies – but none of which suited my ovo-lacto vegetarian, gluten-free diet.
Found this lovely place called “Delicious Bruges” (aptly named) accidentally and asked them if they had eggs on the menu. They didn’t but before I could get disappointed, they told me they will make whatever I wanted. So voila, I had my scrumptious omelette with onions and mushrooms along with a cup of chocolate sprinkled coffee.
Their seating area was one floor up and it was so cozy there with lovely black and white photos of the city on the walls. We chose a table overlooking the narrow street with tourists going in horse-driven carriages or by foot.
In some time, one little girl in a pink dress came down from the floor above, obviously the owner’s daughter. A few minutes later another one came too. Then they both ran into the street with their dad (the owner of the restaurant) seemingly telling them to be careful.
It all seemed so normal except that it was in this beautiful touristy city.
