Lonely Planet review for Etablissement Max
This elegant, pale-pistachio-and-gold brasserie serving refined fare is run by Yves Van Maldeghem whose entrepreneurial family started out with a grand mobile fair stall. Yves bakes waffles using his family's 120-year-old waffle irons, and also makes pancakes and sizzling apple fritters. To bake them yourself, pick up Jan Gheysens' book Belgian Waffles and other treats (2006) here, which contains Yves' family recipes.
