What you'll do

Get ready to sample the delights of authentic Belgian cuisine. With one of our local Brussels hosts, taste your way through the city, sampling its finest beers, wines, traditional dishes and desserts. Start things off with aperitif - sipping beer or wine over shared platters of cheese and charcuterie - then on to a restaurant for a traditional Belgian specialty dish. All before you finish with the ultimate Belgian indulgences: creamy pralines from a maison du chocolat, waffles at an independent cafe or pain sucrés from a celebrated bakery.

We hope you’re hungry because you are about to go on a culinary adventure (the best kind of adventure) through Brussels with one of our food-loving local Brussels hosts

Imagine sipping a traditional Flemish beer or wine, indulging in boards of creamy cheese, melt-in-your-mouth beef stew and salted butternut caramel chocolate? We’re hungry already - but let's not jump the gun! 

You’ll start with an aperitif and some nibbles; your host could take you to a specialty bar where you can sample regional French and Belgian wines, and share a platter of delicious local cheeses, cured meats and herby garlic bread or traditional Belgian puff pastries. Want to taste some famous Flemish beer instead? You could pop into a trendy micro-brewery or an underground beer cellar instead!

Next up: your main course! You could tuck into moules-frites, is mussels steamed in white wine, shallots, parsley, and butter. Or opt for a hearty Flemish Stew made with melt-in-your-mouth beef simmered in Belgian beer and served with creamy sauce and fresh bread slathered with mustard.  

Finally, it’s time for dessert. You could visit artisanal maisons du chocolat and quirky chocolate boutiques where chefs are getting creative with their truffle flavors - Laurent Gerbaud offers flavors ranging from olive oil to ginger and even curry - or you could keep to the classic, impossibly creamy pralines which Belgium is so famous for. Or perhaps you’d prefer a fresh waffle dusted with sugar at a quirky cafe with tables spilling out onto the sidewalk? 

But there are also traditional pain sucrés to taste at Maison Dandoy; think gingerbread made with honey and spices and filled with pearl sugar, ginger, apples or fruits. This bakery is still making Belgian sweet pastries to their great-great-great grandfather’s recipes - they’re just that good! 

We know that you’re here to do indulge, so you’ll do exactly that! Just make sure you wear your stretchiest pants.
