CRU : enjoying simplicity is the new luxury
Many ingredients for the Sofie Dumont Restaurant were delivered by Cru.
CRU is an indoor fresh food market for and by people with a passion for good food, pure flavours and authentic quality products who wish to (re)discover the riches of forgotten and contemporary simplicity. 10 trades come together under 1 roof, offering among other things fish, freshly baked bread, vegetables and fruit, as well as fresh meat, cheese, wine, home-roasted coffee, home-made dishes and flowers.
We believe in the power of nature and give her all the time she needs to bring the products at their best, when the season’s right. We offer them in their most fresh and pure form, without improvers or preservatives.
CRU is more than a shopping trip. You can experience an actual market where you have the time and the space to wander around, be surprised, to taste and make contact.

Dutch Weed Burger
The Dutch Weed Burger is one of the healthiest burgers on the planet, with seaweed as the key flavour maker. The juicy patty is made of briny soy shreds and Royal Kombu, a tasty and healthy winter weed, sustainably cultivated in the Dutch region of Zeeland. The crispy O-mega bun colours bright green, due to the superfood chlorella, a microalgae packed with nutritious proteins and Omega acids. The finishing taste touch is done by their Sea Sauce, enriched with Sea Lettuce, a fresh summer weed that brings a nice freshness to this healthy snack. The burger is vegetarian, vegan, kosher and halal.
Jean sur Mer
Jean Sur Mer is one of the pioneers on the Belgian Food Truck scene. The love of the sea, its salt air and all the good that comes out of it he harbored from an early age. Think about Fish and chips or tasty brandade of smoked mackerel, soft cooked egg and grey shrimps. They serve only seasonal fish, sustainably caught and really fresh! As they say: “Dont’t go to Jean Sur Mer if you’re looking for a weekday caterer. In fact, the only grey at Jean’s foodtruck are the fresh peeled shrimps!”
“Fast and healthy makes happy” is what they think at Spoon. The Pukkelpop Times went even further by saying: “At Spoon they save lives with their divine dishes – which is after all clearly what they were supposed to do from the nursery. From out of a real ambulance they serve soups, wraps and quiches. The founders worked in the corporate world for years and there it became clear how rarely you can find a truly good and healthy lunch. That should be different! Nowadays they cook delicious and healthy food with fresh ingredients. And it is super local: with their roots in Steenokkerzeel, the festival is literally their back garden!
Ruben and Neda are French fries-fanatics in heart and soul. In Rotterdam they became very popular with their concept ‘Haute Friture’: a new way of making French fries in which craftsmanship and freshness are the two most important pillars. Every bio-potato gets freshly cut and gets baked just enough to become the most perfect, gold-brown French fries you have ever tasted. Choose your kind of mayonnaise from the mayo-menu, for instance the truffle flavored one, and there it is: Haute friture. Who says French fries can’t be healthy?
Korean at it’s Belgian best. The Korean kitchen is surprising, healthy and o so good, but however unknown to many of us.
