Respond to Review of de Broers van Julienne
Review: I'm willing to spend money on great meal. Happily. But dining at de Broers van Julienne wasn't worth the cost or the effort of traveling to Antwerp. I had the spring strudel (goat cheese, green asparagus, courgette, carrot, tomato, potato encased in phyllo, served in a mint-pea sauce). The veggies had been stewed into oblivion (e.g. the asparagus was stringy mush) but it was the sauce that was most inedible. My sister had the corn-pasta with sweet potato, red pepper, Mexi-flavoured tomato sauce, which was a little tastier than my strudel but also very mushy. My boyfriend said his fish lasagna with pumpkin, tomato and courgette was bland. I tend to give veg-friendly restaurants the benefit of the doubt - maybe they simply had an off day? Maybe I should've ordered the quiche? But once we got the bill and saw that we were charged 7 EUR for a 1 L bottle of still water, it killed any remaining desire to return. This type of ridiculous markup is tacky profiteering and disrespectful to restaurant patrons.
