Brussels: Inzia restaurant (Congolese)

When visiting Brussels, it’s easy to think that your culinary experience should consist only of waffles, fries and chocolate. Unhealthy, but oh-so-justified, considering it is the city’s cultural emblem around the world. And, let’s not forget – it tastes reallyy good.

But dig deeper into Belgian culture and you will see the diversity of its streets, sections of the city dedicated to one cuisine: from Latin American to Moroccan and Nigerian, the list goes on. One place in particular, Inzia, a trendy but warm Congolese restaurant in the heart of my favourite places to stay (Ixelles) stayed with me long after my trip.

What I really appreciated about Inzia, was it’s atmosphere and design. In the UK, often visiting African restaurants can be a bit of an underwhelming experience, as they tend to be small with not much visual stimulation. This places offers a bar, live African music on Saturdays (usually Congolese), and is adorned with precious details like books about Congo and art from local African artists (this changes monthly).
