Because my mom was celebrating her birthday in Antwerp, of course we wanted to go out for dinner. I feel like over the years my parents have really gotten to know Antwerp the city, but not really Antwerp the province, which comprises of many smaller cities. For the birthday dinner we decided on Orso Pizzeria in Berchem. Berchem is most famous for its art nouveau style architecture. On our way to dinner we were able to look at all of the beautiful houses!
In addition to pizza, Orso Pizzeria serves their own family wine which is spontaneously fermented. Koen and I recently tasted spontaneously fermented wines for the first time while we were in Copenhagen, when we went to Manfred’s for my birthday dinner. We were looking forward to try a few more. There are 3 different options – an aperitif, a white, and a red. We tried them all!
