Looking for a great place to eat in Antwerp? There are many good restaurants, but finding one combining delicious French- Japanese cuisine with great aesthetics and superb service could be quite a challenge. That is, until you discover Roji. Situated at the Oude Koornmarkt, near the Cathedral of Our Lady, Roji combines French cuisine with the umami-centred flavours of the Japanese kitchen. Owner Gunter Landuyt had the idea a few years ago when Axel Vervoordt contacted him about the premises, which were built back in the 13th century. “I decided pretty quickly I wanted to open a restaurant in the building. However, I only wanted to start this adventure if we did something revolutionary. Something new.”
