This week, I have decided to try out something for the Foodie's.
A couple of weeks ago, I was driving near Overijse and I noticed a brand new Restaurant about to open. Then, last week I was nearby again and I saw the "new Resto" was completely full.
Today, I had decided it was time to try something new in town. So, I have invited a few friends to give a try: Wok Dynasty Overijse
The place is super well located on 554 Chaussée de Bruxelles (Brusselsesteenweg) , very well illuminated thanks to the wall-windows design. The whole place is decorated with Asian style furniture, pictures and sculptures that creates a nice exotic atmosphere. The "maître de salle" received us with a Dutch welcome -I got that same feeling when visiting Dutch Commune's- and offer us a table in the middle of the room.
Then our waiter, started to explain everything in Dutch, so before ordering dessert, we asked if he spoke any other language (French or English) but Dutch. - the same feeling as visiting a foreign country, except I was still in Belgium- Then, he switched to English to explained to us again the lunch system they had on offer.
In short, they had a "buffet menu" which included cold and warm entrees, then a choice between Teriyaki or Wok and desserts for 15€ or just a "dish" I mean a wok dish for about 12€. So, we split our choices between "buffet" and "wok" to try the full range of options as much as possible.
The choices from the "buffet" are varied (sushi, salads, chicken skewer...) and the waiting time, for those without "buffet" is short. The Woks were prepared in the moment, so for the buffet, you could choose a mix for yourself and for the set dishes they had ready-made combinations already. Every ingredient is fresh and prepared in that very instant. The different level of spice was accurate to the description. Healthy, affordable food. Just delicious!
The customers visiting the place during lunch time is mainly people living -most were expats- or working in the neighbourhood and a few lost "Bruxeloises" on this area.
So, I would suggest having full service in French and English, as the main clients are not dutch speakers. This is a very international area, though geographically is located in the Brabant-Flamand.
Except for the language, I really enjoyed the concept: location, freshness, and quality of the meals offered. So, if you are craving for Asian style food...you know where to Wok!
