#162 Nice lunch at Indian restaurant Shalimar, Bruges

restaurant review #162.Β Shalimar is an Indian restaurant at the edge of the city. It is located just outside the Gentpoort, in Assebroek. It was already 5 years ago that we had been to Shalimar.

The new Origin’O is very spacious, bright and modern! And we noticed the same interior design and concept as in the renovated Origin’O in Louvain (see post here).
