Damnit! Has our cover been blown? When taking our order (in English), the suspicious waiter at Mili thinks he’s got us sussed. False alarm: we’re not the customer who ordered the extremely spicy beef brisket, seared on the hot stone, for the 124th time. But we could’ve been: on this student-filled, yet sleepy part of Chaussée de Boondael, stands the very best Szechuan spot in the Cimdix neighborhood, whose neon bao sign is like a beacon, telling lost souls that they’ve come to the right place. This time round, we ordered: twice-cooked pork belly, spiced and sliced to perfection, followed by some exceptionally silky tofu with century eggs, and a trio of skewers – grilled rice cakes, squishy fish cakes, and spicy duck tongues. Phew! We escaped unseen. // Rosa Poulsard
