Restaurant Etterbeek


Meals of the world

In line with the internationalization of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the restaurant at Etterbeek campus will be serving a special 'international meal' once or twice a week as of August 2009. Traditional dishes will be served on the national days of specific countries. Most of the countries that will be celebrated are the home countries of students that are here on an Erasmus Lifelong Learning, Erasmus Mundus or scholarship programs.

The goal of this initiative is to familiarize Belgian students and staff with the cultures of the VUB's international students, and offer the international students a little taste of home on their national days. Check the calendar to see when a 'national meal' is being served during the coming weeks.

Students are invited to propose ideas for recipes from their home country or their favourite holiday destination, by emailing the restaurant on the following address:
