The secret recipe of Balls & Glory? There isn’t one- we know exactly what’s inside. These healthy and delicious meatballs will get your kids on board with the new generation of fastfood. This Belgian revisiting of the meatball started with temporary counters in fine food stores; today Balls & Glory has three permanent locations: Antwerp, Ghent, and Bruges. Their Antwerp location is unique for its counter on the docks.
If you decide to eat here, the rustic, laid-back ambiance is sure to please. The long, communal table invites you to share lemon water and fruit with your neighbors, while you all enjoy the exposed brick, cobblestones, and beams which nod at this venue’s former life as a warehouse, now accented with modern suspensions, pastel coloring, and vintage stools. Another reason to visit, the meatball counter shares the space with a Mediterranean grocery and wine bar where the restaurateurs of Antwerp love to do their shopping.
While ordering at the counter, you can see the expert roll the balls by hand with fresh vegetables of the day, 100% local ingredients, and meat (porc, chicken, beaf, or lamb). To compose your plate, you chooses from the two recipes of the day or the vegetarian option, accompanied by “stoemp,” a traditional Flemish dish, which is a kind of mashed potato with vegetables- tender and succulent. As for your appetizer, choose the “Happy Balls”: mozzarella/pepper or mozzarella/pea.
As well as the fun concept, the founder of Balls & Glory focuses on the quality and taste of the ingredients. Kids love the sweet balls. The founder’s favorite? The rhubarbe-ball.
…the meatballs to-go. In summer, find a terrace with a view of the water and enjoy any of Balls & Glory’s meatball creations.
