Bloggers dinner @ De Veranda (Berchem)


The Place & The Chef

De Veranda is one of the most famous ‘bistronomie‘ restaurants in Belgium. It is located in a former paint shop in Berchem, near Antwerp.

Bistronomie is an aggregation of ‘Bistro’ and ‘Gastronomy’ and refers to eating gastronomical food in a bistro setting. The bistronomie trend has known a big increase the past few years with restaurants like J.E.F., De Vitrine, La buvette, Lewis and Beurre Noisette in Belgium; St. John and Pollen Street in London and Septime en Saturne in Paris.


Davy Schellemans is the chef in De Veranda and founded the restaurant a few years ago. The restaurant has been fully booked since day 1 and guarantees a succesful gastronomical night out, combining pure & delicious food, great matching wines and beers, and an informal, cosy setting.


Our second visit to the Veranda was on the 29th of March 2013, together with 15 other Belgian bloggers. Indeed, in Belgium bloggers unite and enjoy the beauty of good restaurants together!

Many thanks to Kim (Cookanista) and Frank (Be-Gusto) for organizing the dinner, and to Thomas (Filet Pur) for the great pictures! If you’re looking for a nice hotel nearby, head over to the Radisson Astrid for a great night sleep.
