Humus x Hortense is a creative dining and drinking experience located in the heart of Brussels.
On weekdays and on Saturday, we serve lunch and dinner in our restaurant x cocktail bar.
During the warm summer months, we will also offer an escape to the beautiful countryside of
Pajottenland (Gooik) where 'Humus in the Fields' will set up an exclusive table for maximum 20 guests.
Along with the restaurant, 'Summer apéros' is a project of two young students of the master program
'Food and Design'. Under supervision of chef Nicolas Decloedt they will create
free no-waste-fingerfoods in combination with refreshing cocktails.
From Tuesday till Saturday, only between 17h and 19h.
At Humus x Hortense, our menu is based on organic and seasonal foods.
Not only the herbs are coming from our own urban garden, but we also collaborate with small producers and professional foragers who are located near the city.
Together with our wine experts, we have made a nice selection of natural wines
and crazy beers from Belgian micro breweries.
Our menu is a tribute to the rich culinary Belgian tradition.
However we twist it in a contemporary and light way by making use of the latest cuisine techniques.
The land of our producers dictate the rythm.
