Back in Mechelen I’ve eaten an amazing burger with grilled vegies, a tomato tapenade and a coleslaw side-dish.
HALLELUJA TO ALL VEGGIEBURGERS, PLEASE?
And I’m already daydreaming about that burger while writing this. Yes, you get that right, it was that good!
Funfact about ‘Il Cardinale’ : the ‘holy’-theme goes as far as their toilets!
They play actual church music in the restroom, when I went there was the sound of a man choir singing. They bring a visit to the toilet to a whole other level!
Waiting in line
It’s not possible to reserve on advance so when we arrived we asked for a table for four. The lady kindly told that the waiting time was 30 min.
But since I had seen so much of their delicious burgers on Instagram I had to taste it!
So we took place at the bar and we ordered a drink.
My mother and sister ordered water with fruit and I had the ‘Judas’. Which was a combination of cava, elderflower juice, lime and mint.
Thank God for burgers
After 30 minutes, we were invited to take a seat and we ordered our burgers. I had the vegetarian burger with grilled vegetables and the coleslaw as a side dish. It was worth the wait!
You can find ‘Il Cardinale‘ at: Sint-Romboutskerkhof 1, 2800 Mechelen (Belgium)
Enjoy thou burgers and love thy neighbour.
Go forth children and spread the word!
