BRUSSELS TRAVEL GUIDE
Dutch, French, and German, though English is widely understood
What to eat
The world-famous Belgian waffles, moules-frites, and a hearty pork carbonnade.

Belgian chocolate pralines from the master chocolatiers at the Galeries Royales St. Hubert, or art prints from a gallery.
Fries are the national dish of Belgium, and there’s no where they make it better than in Brussels, because of their unique cooking method. The carefully-selected potatoes are fried at a low temperature to cook the interior, then fried at a high temperature to crisp the exterior to perfection. Make sure you get an aioli to dip them in!
