A fantastic area well worth a visit if you want to distance yourself from the more obvious parts of Brussels. It's only a short hop from the center, but it feels a million miles away. Wander its narrow crowded streets & treat yourself to a bit in one of the many African & Asian restaurants that populate the area.

|À la Mort Subite |
À la Mort Subite, or sudden death in English, is one of the traditional watering holes a bit off Grand Place. Inside, you'll find friendly service, decent prices (did I mention it was off Grand Place?), and the original 1928 Art Deco interior. Sample some of the numerous Belgian beers and don't forget the house brand: À la Mort Subite. I did - and I'm still alive.
|Manneken Pis |
Corner of Rues de l' Etuve & du Chêne
New York has the Statue of Liberty, Copenhagen has the Little Mermaid and Brussels has Manneken Pis. This statue of a little boy in a somewhat compromising position has been a major tourist attraction in the city for several centuries.
