InVINcible Wine List
As you might guess from the name, InVINcible is a real wine restaurant. The restaurant is located in the heart of Antwerp, somewhat hidden in one of the small streets between the river Scheldt and the Grote Markt.
Kenny is both chef and sommelier, which of course explains why the wine and food are so well matched here. Next to some classics from the menu, like the pasta pancetta from the parmesan wheel, the Dorade Royal in salt crust or his special selection of côte a l'os, you can always find some very interesting suggestions. Don't miss the game season here, as the chef makes great game pâté and the spit-roasted pheasant is finger-licking good.
The whole restaurant is recently renovated. The previous wall where all the bottles they offered were displayed, was not big enough for the whole selection. The selection of wines kept growing and now Kenny offers a very interesting and diverse wine list with around 200 references! Alongside fun discoveries from all over the world, we find a wide selection of top wines from Germany. Last but not least there is a separate page for Kenny's favourite winemaker, Marc Kent of Boekhoutskloof and a vertical selection of his wines. I had the pleasure of enjoying a superb 2001 Syrah during my last visit.
InVINcible is all Tom describes it to be and more. The friendly staff with Kenny running the open kitchen and his lovely wife making sure all is up to par on the floor makes for a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The pasta pancetta was heavenly and the spit-roasted flat fish juicy and delicious. If you've got a sweet tooth but are not up for dessert, why not finish up with a glass of Chartreuse from a ridiculously oversized bottle!
