humus: a black mass of partially decomposed organic matter in the soil. It improves the fertility and water retention of the soil and is therefore important for plant growth.
Humus Botanical Gastronomy is a creative urban dining experience located in the heart of Brussels. Situated in a warm and charming house from the 1930’s, Humus serves true food. We serve lunch, cook a refined brunch, food to share in the evenings and twice a week, we provide a table d’hôte-style menu limited to a few people. While dining at our table, all five senses are stimulated.
At Humus, an exceptional menu based on organic and sustainably grown food is created. Utilizing not only our own urban garden, but also other small producers located near the city. The kitchen adapts to the seasons and what is locally grown.
With sustainability in mind, the wine list is paired with the menu. We have selected wines that are all natural, organic or biodynamic through quality Belgian wine merchants who purchase from the winemakers directly.
The root of our cuisine is the land of Belgium. We go back to our culinary traditions, but twist it to contemporary cooking by using interesting techniques. During my travels I became inspired by many worldwide kitchen techniques.
The land and my producers dictate the rythm of the menu.
We love our producers, their passion and dedication.
