Henri is a cosy and trendy petite restaurant at the "Vlaamsesteenweg", the Flemish street. As the streetname already predicts this area is loved by most of the Flemish Brussels locals who hang out in these bits of town, namely the streets around the Dansaertstraat, Vlaamsesteenweg and the Brandhoutkaai.
Henri is run by the cheerful trio, the brothers Campens and David De Schepper who are old schoolmates.
If you want to try a real Brussels speciality, you should order “filet américan”. This local speciality is so loved by the Brussels locals that there is actually a fierce discussion alive in the streets on who makes the best “américan”. This is actually raw hatched meat, with egg yoak, musterd, oil, oignons, capers, worcester sauce, salt and lots of fresh pepper). Other local specialities that are not raw, are roasted chicken with fries, shrimp and cheese croquettes.
If you liked your first visit to Henri, you can easily return as the cooking trio changes their suggestion menu weekly. Maybe like the Flemish Brussels locals you will fall in love and come again, and again...
