Hertog Jan, Bruges

Recommended Posts

Went to this place a few weeks ago and was stunned by how good it was. Nothing was below very good, and some courses were outright amazing. Some of the stronger courses of the night featured regional seafood, and a beautiful Lamb, which was prepared absolutely perfectly with tons of flavour and a great textural contrast between the meltingly tender meat, creamy fat, and thin crackling.

All in all, the food was very pretty, natural, and clean. Execution was faultless too, and service was polite, young, motivated, smiling and warm. The only weak point was the wine list, which needs a little more time I suppose. For the moment it features stuff from all over the world, which per se isn't a bad thing, but a lot is not yet mature.

I can only say that this was a real discovery, which I will revisit as quickly as possible.
