First off, I’d like to point out that Brussels was worth the 8-hour roundtrip from Paris.
I spent one full day in this picturesque charming city and I really wished that I had more time here. I was here literally two days before the 2016 Brussels bombing and that really freaked me out. My mom called me multiple times while I was in class after the attack and I was just as scared as she was. 🙁 It was devastating.
- Belgium is obviously known for their chocolate, beer, frites and waffles. There are several courses offered on how to create your own chocolate. My friend Nicole did a short chocolate workshop at Zabbar last year. It’s a place near Avenue Louise. I severely regret not spending enough time in this city. But unfortunately, I had to get back to Paris on time for class.
All of the cafe’s and restaurants are super trendy! Everything was photogenic. Google Maps helped me so much that day. Brussels may be small, but it’s not easy to navigate as there are many routes and streets leading to completely different parts of town.
Literally the cutest sign! Belgium chocolate at every corner. These were the Belgian beers that my friends ordered. I don’t drink but that looked beautiful haha.
Straight from the insta:
Not waffles&dinges. #RealDealThe ultimate culinary gem of Brussels, Gaufres de Liege. Liege waffle topped with speculoos butter, bananas, strawberries, whipped cream, drizzles of nutella and sprinkles of caramelized pearl sugar, ?????
Belgium. I’ll be back for your chocolate, your frites, and your waffles.
