Boulettes, a meatball speciality shop. Delicious, creative, quality, affordable, nice and cosy !!!
Meatballs (except home-made ones) make me think of strange meats (or other unknown left overs) mashed up together… Let’s change mind…

Don’t forget the dessert !!!
==> ” !!! ” We were so full… But we have to taste the desserts…I ask the chef his recommendation before jumping on chocolate… And …. He suggests the pear tart…. HUUUM….
Pear tarts are usually what I don’t go for… Heavy, too sweet, with inconsistant pears…
Kevin Austruy your pear tart is a DELIGHT !!! It is exquisite. The pears are cut very thinly, delicately perfumed with vanilla and rum. They have a nice texture. The almond cream is perfect. Just sweet as it should be. The tart sweet crust is very good too.
Who couldn’t imagine eating such a pastry chef type of dessert in a meatball street-food hip place? <3
Cosy, hip, design
The service is great. Passionate, concerned, efficient…
You can order at the counter but also on their website to take-out and soon for a delivery service.
You can go with vegetarian friends !!!
To discover those kind of quality places… I am testing a lot of awful disappointing places…
But it worth it for that kind of restaurant, passionate chef creations, and work!
I really had a DELICIOUS lunch and a HAPPY TIME.
