hidden gem Le Bistro de Jean at rue des fripiers
Are you going to Mons (Bergen)? Then book a table at Le Bistro de Jean Phi! This culinary hotspot can be found at the Rue des Fripiers in the middle of the cozy old city center. Le Bistro de Jean Phi in Mons is a true hidden gem that you really have to know where it is located at.
It’s the kind of restaurant that doesn’t look really special from the outside, but serves incredibly delicious bistro style food. Thus: you need to eat at Le Bistro de Jean Phi if you’re in Mons for the weekend! You can choose from different menus of the Chef starting from a 3 course meal with fitting wine.
The menus change with every season and there are options for meat, fish or vegetarian. I had an amazing entree with crab and a main dish polo from the plancha. Also very delicious!
I love cheese, so for dessert I almost always pick this when it’s on the menu. At Le Bistro de Jean Phi in Mons the cheese plateau really is different. It’s all the same cheese but all with different ripening time periods. From 8 to 24 months. The older it is, the spicier it is. Yum!
Good to know: Chef Jean Philippe has another restaurant in Mons. The more chic looking icook is highly recommended for an extensive lunch or dinner.
