How could I not eat at a place with the word “tram” in the name when I visit Brussels?
Les Super Filles du Tram is a busy restaurant near Place Flagey in Brussels. Their speciality is hamburgers. I’ve been twice (so far) and both times it was very good.
The staff are friendly and speak English well. They even seem to enjoy it when you try to speak French with them. I started my conversation trying to say “I don’t speak French”, the barman corrected my grammar, but said it did not matter since he spoke English!
I was in a hurry and the barman was super efficient at taking my order, bringing my food and bill. Very nice!
The food is quite good. Because I was in a hurry I ordered a simple burger cooked medium rare. I haven’t had a better hamburger in a long time. It was flavourful and loosely pressed (I hate really dense hamburgers). Nicely toasted bun with salad and tomato. The frites were also quite good, well cooked and crisp.
The beer selection is fine, but not great. I had a Chimay the first time and a La Chouffe last time. But, it’s a place to go for a good, fast and simple dinner, you can go elsewhere to enjoy an evening beer tasting.
My burger, frites and beer cost about 15 euros with a decent tip.
