If you’ve been following the blog or my Instagram for a while, you probably know all too well my excitement for all things Japanese, from the art and architecture to food and culture. And while I have not been in Japan yet, you’ll find me trying new restaurants or visiting Japanese gardens (including the largest Japanese garden in Europe!) every so often and dreaming about my future trip. Whether you share my love for all things Japanese or are just keen on the Japanese cuisine, I have a great spot in Brussels to share.
Kamo is actually the only Michelin-starred Japanese restaurant in Brussels and is guaranteed to blow you away. The interior is contemporary and unlike other restaurants of its caliber, it feels laid back. It’s also not too expensive (albeit not cheap either!) and is open for both lunch and dinner. One of the things I like the most here is how polite and unrushed the service is; you can really relax and enjoy your meal. Kamo is popular and although it’s always full, it never feels too noisy or crowded.
Have a sit at the counter or get one of the tables around it and observe the chefs work the magic. Everything is freshly prepared with the outmost love and attention to detail which is reflected in the quality of the dishes. On lunchtime, don’t miss the set menu which comes with soup and a few side dishes and is good value for money. My partner in crime and I also ordered a few dishes off the menu to get a bit more variety and were not disappointed. I’ve heard great things of the wine too but I am a faithful fan of sake!
Kamo is true to its reputation as one of the best Japanese restaurants in Brussels. Just make sure to reserve a table, especially for lunch, enjoy this little gem and maybe share a picture with me on Instagram with the #seemybrussels hashtag!
