    Moules et frites

    You just *have* to try the national dish of an enormous pot of mussels stewed in white wine sauce, served with chips and mayonnaise. Eating moules is not dignified, so I guess it makes a great ice-breaker!

    CHOCOLATE MADE IN BELGIUM !! Belgium produces 172,000 tons of chocolate per year and has 2,130 chocolate shops in her country.

    The Belgian Chocolate Praline is not to be confused with the American praline. Pralines in Belgium are sublime chocolate confections, the highest achievement of the chocolate maker art: A beautifully sculpted chocolate shell concealing a center of filling explodes with a surprise of texture and flavor in your mouth. Many chocolatiers still make their pralines by hand. Every town and even small villages have chocolate stores with luxurious pralines.

    No Brussels visit is complete without you having a WAFFEL.

    They come as plane waffels with some powder sugar or with all kind of tasty dressings.

    ... with strawberries and cream More Waffel goodies!

    Fries and Belgian Mayonaise

    by ATLC Written Jan 23, 2005

    The Belgians are kings when it comes to fries. Thick fries with that typical sour-ish, mustardy mayonaise. Just buy them in a shop sayin 'FRITUUR' or off a street stall. Yummy!

    Brussels Sprouts were named after Brussels, the capital of Belgium, where they were first thought to have been cultivated.
