Bistro Bis Revisit (Tongeren)
For more information about the restaurant and the chef, please consult our first review.
After our first visit in September 2013, we were glad to be able to visit Bistro Bis again to discover their new first menu of 2014. Together with the girlfriends and the colleagues from Be-gusto we decided to have a walk through chef’s Johan Haverlains menu and opted for the Bis-off! Menu.
Warm sourdough bread is served in a white linen basket.
Ham, crisps, salsify
Celeriac – lentils – onions
Oyster – cabbage – sushi
Cheese – kohlrabi – mustard seed
Chervil Root – autumn greetings
Hake – pumpkin – sesame
Pheasant – artichoke – chicory
Aged parmesan – blood orange
Black Forest – chocolate – cherry
Coffee & tea, with rice pudding & madeleine
Once again we enjoyed a remarkable selection of beautiful natural wines and beers and interesting regional drinks. Bistro Bis proves itself as a perfect restaurant to discover natural drinks that match the dishes perfectly.
