In a multicultural city like Brussels, the food is as revered as the art and music. The unique cultural mix makes for rich culinary traditions that borrow liberally from all over Europe. Though Brussels food is flavourful and indulgent, it is one of the most underrated cities when it comes to culinary standing. But we all love Belgian chocolates and Belgian Waffles, right?
Though meats and seafood rule the plate, Brussels restaurants also cater to vegetarian tastes with delectable creations. But the pride of Brussels food are the humble French fries. They’re an integral part of Belgium’s culinary heritage, like the Belgian beer. It is consumed in copious quantities and many restaurants here brew their own blend.
Apart from the local dishes, Brussels also offers a rich selection of world cuisine. You will find Brussels restaurants serving French, Thai, Italian and even Indian food. With so many places to eat in Brussels, you will be spoilt for choice. Here’s a list of restaurants where you can get some of the best food in Brussels.
L’Epicerie is simplicity defined. This one-woman restaurant serves the best of Brussels food. There is no fixed menu and you do not get to choose your food. The owner cooks and serves whatever she’s purchased that morning. The food is fresh and full of flavours. Highly recommended!
If you’re looking for good food in a cosy ambience, head to Le Bistro. The wood décor and the friendly staff will add a dash of homeliness to your dining experience. Try their mussels and shrimp in garlic sauce. The portions are generous, and prices are pocket-friendly.
