Gourmet Lille

If beautiful starred tables find all their place in Lille, it is surely because in this region of France the gastronomic tradition is important...

You can enjoy regional dishes, influenced by Flemish traditions...

Traditional estaminets and other good tables to taste a regional gourmet cuisine : Flemish carbonnade, potjevleesch, chicon au gratin or welsh among the most famous, all accompanied by a local beer, of course !

On the sweet side, the sugar tart and the unmistakable filled wafflesfrom Chez Meert (rue Esquermoise), a real institution. And a detour to the Merveilleux de chez Fred (rue de la Monnaie or Lille-Flandres train station), to taste these meringues coated with whipped cream... a lightness to die for !
