Looking for proof that the Tibetan restaurant Kunthun (which translates to “welcome one and all”) has always been a huge success in Antwerp? A second location was opened in the south of the city in 2021, which very quickly became a rallying point for the neighborhood’s hipsters and foodies. You’ll find the same yellow and orange tones, the same kitsch decor (various fabrics, statuettes, a TV tirelessly spitting out images of traditional dances), the same eclectic, easy-going crowd, the same efficient and unfussy service… and best of all, the same shared plates, served in generous portions. What did we order? A dozen momo, those pan-fried or steamed dumplings made with tender dough and pork stuffing; shrimp ravioli served in a spicy chili sauce; Sichuan-style cold chicken glazed in a less fiery chili sauce; lovely and deliciously spicy transparent cellophane noodles; and suan cai rouma, aka ground pork served with vegetables pickled in vinegar. Our conclusion? We’ll be back for more! // Peter Vandenberghe
