Hoffy’s is located walking distance from Central Station in Antwerp right in the middle of the Jewish neighbourhood. First thing you see when you enter this dated looking restaurant is the huge counter with lots of different precooked dishes. If you’re looking for a quick take away place, Hoffy’s will offer you a broad variety of choices.
We visited the restaurant with friends. For me it was my first time eating kosher. We decided to have the discovery menu. We started with a variety of four different entrees which were all very nice. My personal favorite was the “stuffed fish” (not quite sure if I understand this correctly). The patron explained us the meaning of kosher food and also some typical customs from orthodox judaism. Lots of rules to follow!
Main course was really nice, even though the food was precooked and heated in an oven. Especially loved the more sweet taste of the dishes (the chicken with prunes and raisins was lovely). The stuffed eggplant was also very nice. Food looked delicious and tasted great.
We drank some Israelian red wine with our meal, which was just ok, nothing special.
The interior of the restaurant felt very dated and not that cosy. But if you want to try a different kind of food, this is your place to be. If I lived in this neighbourhood, I would definitely stop by to buy some precooked dishes.
