Brussels Belgium, Delightfully Delicious!

Dining in Brussels is a real treat; foodies everywhere consider this city to be home to some of the best cuisine in the world.  Brussels is known by some as the world capital of waffles, chocolate, beer and – the French Fry. Yes, you read that right, the French Fry

Belgian legend says that when British and American soldiers were arriving in Belgium during the first World War, they tried the Belgian Fries.  However, as most of the native people and members of the Belgian Army spoke French,  they (the Americans and British soldiers) called the fried potatoes  French Fries. French Fries, however, are now served a little different than Belgian fries.  The Belgian-style fries typically come in a paper cone, are made from freshly cut potatoes (never frozen), fried twice and served with mayonnaise as a dipping sauce. Known as “Frieten”, they are the national snack of Belgium. Delicious!

Belgium is also world renowned for their chocolate – there is even a museum dedicated to this delightful treat, The Chocolaterie Planete Chocolat. Here they give tours and offer workshop which teach visitors the fine art of chocolate making.

If you love good food, then Brussels is an ideal destination for some great eating, if nothing else.  Your stomach will thank you for finding a cheap flight to Brussels to partake in this gastronomic adventure- and so will your memory in years to come.
