Food in Belgium — what to try?
What can a tourist eat in Belgium? Of course, gastronomic tourism is not taken into account, and I do not pretend to a detailed analysis of tastes — but I still want to give some guidelines. I proceed from the fact that when preparing a vacation, such a review would help me to orient myself in advance — although on the spot we still behaved according to the situation. So, the main food for a tourist, the simplest tourist who does not go in Michelin restaurants — these are cafes and restaurants. There are a lot of cafes in Belgium, the closer to the center, the more their number per square meter increases. Choose for yourself — which direction you like. My advice— — a lot of people, they have been sitting for a long time, happy and relaxed — everything is fine, we have to go. And if they are tense, their faces are gloomy, they are reluctantly poking around in the plates — not with their feet!))) By prices: the average prices for hot dishes are 14-18-20 euros in cafes. Serving sizes may vary depending on the restaurant. Carbonara, as a rule, is served in huge portions almost everywhere — this is what I love and what I often ordered. carbonara in BelgiumMany advise — and order mussels in Belgium. For those who love them, I strongly advise you to pay attention. They are served in large «pans», the price is 18-25 euros — I have seen such a range of prices.

I also insist that you try cherry ale — unfortunately no photo — ordered in a cafe. We do not recommend KWAK beer — it is very strong, and you need to drink it only from a special glass — otherwise it is not interesting) Another mandatory item "grocery" programs in Belgium are chocolate. Belgian chocolate —it's insanely delicious! I strongly advise you to try candy truffles in shops and milk chocolate. Even white Belgian doesn't taste like putty, but delicious!

There are no beautiful photos, because while eating waffles I try to put all valuable things away — otherwise they will be completely in food. The streets are full of «waffle + drink» advertising lures; for 2 euros. This includes just a waffle, without a single topping, and a drink that looks like fruit ice: a lot of ice and something like Jupi diluted)))) The photo below is just such a set.
