THIS IS A GOODBYE
Dear friends we got something very important to tell you.😔
Agua na boca concept has come to an end.😪
As most of you who've been following our journey as from the beginning know, my graduation project of writing a business plan, rapidly ran out of hand.
From a small hidden ghost kitchen, Agua na boca grew to this beautiful cozy successful restaurant.
A cozy home to all - decorate with happy flowers 🌺 - small charming lights🕯️& loud tropical music 🎶- where people could enjoy my delicious food & my man's warm hospitality.
Running a restaurant asks A LOT. Agua na boca was dependent on us, it was a priority, a lifestyle that took all of our weekends & influenced every aspect of our life.
People that know me know that I must be free, free like a bird, to discover the world - my forgotten first life goal.
Sharing this news breaks my heart 💔 as this concept was really like a baby to me. A business I started from scratch, gave everything that I've got & even more than that.
I want to thank everyone who contributed to Agua na boca, everyone who visited or ordered & above all, all frequently returning customers 'cause your smiles & comebacks kept inspiring me & kept me going all the way. 🙏🏻
What a ride these two years have been! ❤️

Agua na boca was born in January 2021 out of my graduation project for my Bachelor Degree in International Entrepreneurship. January, the middle of the corona crise.The world was turned upside down, the future was unpredictable and all fun outdoor activities were impossible due to mandatory closures. I spent a big part of my free time discovering culinary goodies and that' s where I got inspired. The dishes I made were so yummy! and none of them were to be found in any restaurant! Antwerp was missing something and I was going to change that.
I decided to open a restaurant. A restaurant that could open even despite the closures. A restaurant that only worked through delivery or takeaway.
I rented the kitchen of the well-known sandwich bar De kleine Matthias and in the evening when they closed, I started cooking.
After half a year of testing my concept, it became very clear people loved Agua na boca and it was time for a second step.
I moved Agua na boca to a food court in Antwerp, which was called; The Berlin Post. Although that story only lasted 3 months, it had been the perfect test and boost for Agua na boca. This success led me to open my own restaurant with a lot of confidence.
So here we are in our new home, our very own Agua na boca restaurant.
