We get it. We also get tired of the same old sandwiches we find on the other side of the street. Not that they are delicious. But sometimes, we need something different.
So, to break the monotonous path we can find ourselves on, we decided to try several exotic restaurants for you.
Here is our top 5:

Let’s Dim Sum is a small family-owned restaurant with authentic and homemade Dim Sums. The parents are working in the kitchen and the kids are doing the service. The terrace in the back is a huge success once the sun is out. Some of our coworkers already tested and approved this address.
We opt for the 10€ menu for lunch with an appetizer and 2 baskets of Dim Sums. Inexpensive and delicious!
Openings hours: Monday to Sunday from 12:00 to 14:00 and from 18:00 to 23:00, except on Saturdays, only from 18:00 to 23:00.
