Restaurant Terborght is located in Huizingen, near Brussels. You can find the restaurant in a historic building dating from 1617, which was renovated in 2004. The building is constructed in a classical Flemish style and has a certain medieval charm around it.
Lesley De Vlieger is waving the gastronomic flag in restaurant Terborght and is accompanied by Marijke de Ron, who is responsible for the service. Lesly is relative young chef (32 years old in 2011) and servers traditional French-Belgian dishes with a contemporary twist.
We had the opportunity to sample the menu “Jong Keukengeweld”, which had several appetizers, 4 courses and coffee with sweets for only 45 euro per person, wines and water included. A bargain indeed! Please find more information on this promotion here.
Our menu was originally proposed with accompanying beers, but we asked for accompanying wines and got them for a small extra. They were of good quality, but not memorable.
The “Belgian Taste Buds” Experience
The menu was good, but not very surprising. Dishes were presented in an original matter but weren’t really memorable in terms of taste, originality and product choice. All dishes were of a more than average level, but could not intrigue us that much. We are however very curious about the development of restaurant Terborght in the future, as the team clearly demonstrates the passion for culinary art and the potential to offer great gastronomic experiences.
