Wagyu Carpaccio on the terrace of Grand Café Lamot in Mechelen

The Grand Café Lamot in the Beethovenstraat in Mechelen has a nice terrace with views on the Dijle. The Brassiere is located in the historic brewery of Lamot. On the ground floor you still see the original beer boiler. The Grand Café has a modern look with glass walls. The menu card shows quality products and ingredients. We didn’t want to eat too heavily so we selected the Carpaccio of Wagyu beef and the Spaghetti Bolognese. Both were very good so we can recommend this Brassiere. It was only a pity that the Wagyu was not freshly cut, such details could upgrade the Brassiere/Restaurant even more. By the way, did you know that Japanese Wagyu cows drink beer and receive massages?

Het Grand Café Lamot in de Beethovenstraat in Mechelen heeft een mooi terras met zicht op de Dijle. De Brasserie is gevestigd in de historische brouwerij van Lamot. Op de benedenverdieping vind je nog steeds de originele bierketel. Het Grand Café Lamot heeft een moderne uitstraling met glazen buitenmuren. De menu kaart biedt vele kwaliteitsproducten en ingrediënten aan. We wilden niet te zwaar eten en kozen voor de Carpaccio van Wagyu rundvlees en een Spaghetti Bolognese. Beide gerechten waren zeer goed dus kunnen we deze Brasserie zeker aanbevelen. Het was enkel spijtig dat de Wagyu niet vers gesneden was, zo’n details kunnen het Restaurant/Brasserie nog wat meer allure geven. Wist je trouwens dat de Japanse Wagyu runderen bier drinken en worden gemasseerd?.

  5. Beer and massage makes up the sumptuous taste of wagyu. They massage the cows they don't actually walk. This is to avoid cramps :)

  10. Lucky cows, drinking beer and being massaged is not bad for a short life before being slaughtered....
