  • Although Brussels does not disappoint in its well known waffle, chocolate and beer selection, the city's blend of French and Flemish cuisine makes for some of the best food in Europe even outside of the waffled persuasion.

    Like many metropolitan centers in Europe, Brussels has its fair share of overpriced tourist traps, offering tasty but expensive moules frites (mussels) and gaufres (Brussels waffles). These are particularly prevalent in Rue des Bouchers-Beenhouwerstraat, just north of the Grand Palace, where wait staff and owners will attempt to lure you inside to often overpriced, bland cuisine. The moules and other seafood options are sometimes worth the price in this area, but the crowds can also be a deterrent.

    Smaller cafés, bars and brasseries on side streets and farther away from the Rue des Bouchers are your best bets for partaking in typical Belgian and tasty international dishes without feeling as if you've been pick pocketed. Look for Jacques and other terrific shops near Place Sainte-Catherine for some of the best moules and seafood bistros in the city. For terrific Thai, Vietnamese and Indian food, find your way to the Bourse Jules Van Praetstraat, a burgeoning street for Asian cuisine. Brussels also has some of the best fritkots, or fry shops in Europe, where you can purchase affordable paper cones full of fried deliciousness. Remember - there aren't French fries in Brussels, only frites. Other affordable stops include local kebab shops, pizzerias and glaciers for crepes and ice cream.

    Of course, for dessert, you have your pick of any local chocolate shop (although some are shockingly expensive) or sweet waffles, like the gaufre de Liége or Luikse wafel, with caramelized sugar. Keep an eye out for more inexpensive shops, or if you're willing to spend extra for some of the best-quality chocolate in the world, try Wittamer shops, which can be found on the Place du Grand Sablon-Grote Zavel Plein.
