So a few weeks ago I went to this new champagne bar / hotdog restaurant in Antwerp. Actually I didn’t know it existed, until a friend had the idea to have dinner over there.
Normally I’m not a fan of hotdogs, but my boyfriend always tells me I need to try new things in life, so… I gave it a try!
Each hotdog stands for a sin. So this place is re-constructing the seven sins in life, served with champagne. You can also see the story in the interior and the decoration. In my opinion it’s a nice concept with potential!
The owner even asked us if we had some tips so they can adjust their dishes and concept, because every beginning needs some steering. I really liked they asked our opinions. After all we need to enjoy it!
The waiters are really friendly and since the concept is a little bit confusing they give you a nice explanation. Also their menu is somehow different from all the others.
You can choose your hotdog in which you have the choice between different sort of sausages.
I had the second sin called “Wrath” which is already recommanded by Frank&Brut itself. Next to your hotdog there’s also the opportunity to choose some side dishes: I had the sidedish called tator tots which are some sort of croquettes. You can also have some salads with it too!
- My hotdog was REALLY delicious BUT If you compare your meat with your bread it’s sad. There’s just one little sausage and a big amount of bread. Or the bread needs to be thinner, or they need to put 2 sausages into it.
- My hotdog was filled with cut beetroot, bacon, baked onion and I think some celery too. But is was TOO MANY beetroot. It was just too much, the flavor was overwhelming. It’s a pity.
- It’s delicious, but I guess for some people too less.
- The tables are placed too close to each other. Some people like their privacy.
Normally they recommend the sinner’s combo for one price. So price-quality seen it’s a nice offer. You’ll have one sinner dog, one sharing and one side dish.
After dinner, when asking the bill they give you a notebook together with the bill so you can leave a note. Really cute!
My conclusion: nice concept and friendly people.
