Overview and Design of Wolf Food Market

The ASLK building features an imposing exterior, characterised by the bold “Wolf” inscription on the front and refined architectural and design details.

This facade says alot about the building’s rich history, while playful touches, like the “craft beer” and “sharing food” hashtags, hint at its present use. 

A diverse culinary world awaits you inside. As you enter, a dazzling array of pop-up kiosks will greet you, all vying for your attention.

Armed with mouth-watering dishes, where should you go next? Find your perfect spot amid the wide variety of seating options. Enjoy a fun, cosy, and friendly atmosphere where you can connect with others over good Brussels street food. Relics from the building’s banking days –old counters and other details – have been reimagined into unique decor and used as countertops, tables, chairs and lamps.

As you chat and savour your meal, gaze upwards at the Val Saint Lambert’s glass ceiling. It’s another of the building’s unique features that fills the rooms with character and light.

The History of Wolf Food Market: Living up to Its Name

The WOLF Food Market’s origin story traces back to when Brussels was a simple settlement around a swamp called Broekzoelle, home to roaming wolves.

Fast-forward to 1948. A renowned building was about to be built on Wolvengracht (Wolf Street), where wolf packs once gathered. The development served as the headquarters for the ASLK, Algemene Spaar—en Lijfrentekas (General Savings and Annuity Fund). In a way, the venue became home to “wolves” of another kind, those within the world of finance. 

Today, the premises have been revamped. Lip-smacking cuisine made by a legion of culinary wolves has replaced the bustle of business activity.
