I got take out via uber eats while working at Theatre de la Monnaie. This is authentic, delicious California style Mexican food, and I've missed it after 20 years living in Europe. BRAVI to the owners and the cooks. Thank you and I'll have a...lot more before leaving Brussels in 2 weeks.More

I have been a regular customer of CHEZWaWa catering, takeaway and in-store dining, and the place is great in all respects. As a North American who spent a lot of time in the Mexico and the southwestern US, I know that finding proper Mexican food...in Europe can be a bit of a quest. If you are also searching for those flavors and most places don't seem to make happen, the CHEZWaWa is your place. Delicious. Friendly. And pretty affordable.More

once upon a time in Brussels the biggest ripoff in Brussels's restaurant scene. How people have the audacity to serve this microwaved cafeteria food is beyond me. 34 euro for 2 burritos and 2 normal drinks! Why? Instead of taking beautiful pictures, they should invest...their time in actually serving fresh food! Don't expect that they will clean the tables for the small fortune you'll be paying, any stickier and I was forever glued to the table! And please stop with all the signs, everywhere you look: Wait here, wait there, at one point you don't know what you can do...A useless, snobbery place that will soon be out of business once people come to their senses...More

There has been a significant increase in the number of Mexican food places in Brussels in the past years - which is great! ChezWaWa has fresh ingredients, good portions and fast service! I would recommend eating from here! We had 2 burritos: - Roll-Your-Own-Way Grande:...Naked burrito (great to have this option) with chicken, brown rice, black beans and shredded lettuce; - Burrito Pequeño with chips and guac, chicken, black beans, medium spicy sauce (not really spicy!), sour cream, shredded cheese and lettuce. The prices are decent 10-14 EUR depending on your choice of ingredients.More

We are regular customers of Chez Wawa and for having tried the few other cali-mex cantina that are in town, chez Wawa is by far the best quality there is to find. The ingredients are always very fresh and tasty. Also we like the fact...that you can chose different fillings for each taco unlike other places where you have get 3 taco’s with the same filling. I am not vegetarian, yet I would strongly recommend the tofu, it is delicious. The service is usually fast and friendly. The concept is perfect if you want some quality food on the go. Much better than other fast foods.More
