At a nearby table, a couple was waxing seraphic about the chicken salad sandwiches ($6.95) — "the best in the world" — as they ordered a quart of the filling. Needless to say, we had to get one to go. My bite was, in fact, delicious, heavy on the mayonnaise, as I like it. But Johnnie got to eat the rest of it. However, I quickly brightened at the first bite of my Breugel sandwich ($6.95). Who knew that Belgians love prosciutto? It was terrific, salty-savory, and nicely complemented by that boursin. I also took home some of the Vlasmarkt chili ($4.50/$6.95), prepared according to the recipe at the late Cokabera Café in Ghent. It was nicely seasoned, given a kick from jalapeno peppers, and contained more ground beef than beans.
You'll like the place. And don't just take my word — check out the thankful bathroom postcards, from Boston to Berlin, the Bahamas to Bruxelles.
