#157 Nice and voluminous Mexican lunch at Noorderhuis, Roeselare

restaurant review #157ย Noorderhuis is a Mexican restaurant in the center of Roeselare. Noorderhuis does not sound very ‘Mexican’ (it literally translates as ‘the Northern House’ ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), but it is located in the Noordstraat (a shopping street north of the market), hence the name.

No problem. We were seated at the back of the restaurant, near the toilets, on a small table next to a demi wall, seperating the restaurant from the kitchen. We were there for lunch on a Friday and the place was fully packed (this was shortly after New Year and there seemed to be a large table with a group of colleagues having a New Year’s lunch). Accoustics were very bad and the noise was loud! We …
