G G – Cucina Traditionale Italiana Restaurant (Maasmechelen Village)

Last week – the wonderful folks at Maasmechelen Village invited bloggers to come out and visit for a day whilst exploring the newly opened DeMeyer Store (serious chef cookware… of which I HAD to purchase, but that is a whole other story) amongst their backdrop of other exciting shops. Needless to say – 5 girls shopping parcels looked like this after only a few short hours: G&G 7 (Our 2 guys were clever enough to keep their parcels with themselves 🙂 as they travelled there by car – whilst we took the opportunity to catch the MMV bus from Brussels – making our return journey all about “show & tell” Anyhoo – we were not only spoiled by return transfers – but we also got treated to lunch at G&G – an Italian restaurant in the village offering family sized pizza’s (thanks to their Italian imported pizza oven that can make up to 200 pizza’s in one go!) plus delicious pasta’s.

We started off with a bit of anti-pasta & mozzarella topped tomato bruschetta (whilst some sipped on Peach Bellini’s) – sooo good G&G 3 G&G 2 and then shared a Family-size Quatro Stagioni pizza (22euro – ham, mushrooms, artichokes, olives) G&G pizza along with Clam Spaghetti (which had half of the table drooling as it was SO good) – definite chilli undertones… Mmm (17.50€) G&G 5 and the other half of the table drooling over the G&G Penne (with saffron, cream & prawns 16.50€) G&G 6 Between 9 of us – we shared 1 Family size pizza & 2 of each pasta (after the platters of anti-pasta) and it was more than sufficient. Some of us didn’t sit around for coffees as we were eager to get back into retail therapy. Would I return? We have all agreed that a 6monthly trip to Maasmechelen Village for a day is a DEFINITE… and now that I have tried both Ellis Burger and G&G – I can honestly say that they are both excellent choices for lunch while you are there. Big thanks to M for providing some of her better looking photos 🙂 and further thanks to the MMV team for a wonderful day!
