A Foodie’s Paradise in Brussels

A Foodie’s Paradise in Brussels

The Belgians know their #unique beers and are praised for their waffles, so I decided to spend my time in #Brussels filling my stomach. There are many different #foodanddrink tours, so I decided on a full culinary tour and a chocolate tour. With a full stomach, I went back to my room at the charming and friendly Metropole Hotel.


For me, traveling to Brussels is a must. The Belgians are known for their delicious food and their great beer. They consistently receive praise for their culinary dishes and sweets, including chocolate and have won many world renowned prizes for their beer. Even if you don’t consider yourself a foodie, you’ll love traveling to what I consider to be the European capital of deliciousness.

One of the best ways to experience Brussels is to stay at a comfortable and historic hotel. You can relax at the Metropole Hotel, a large five-star hotel that offers the best comfort in the city center. The hotel is equipped with a mini-bar, air-conditioning and heaters.

Finding it hard to decide on one or two dishes for dinner? Worry not! Dine on not one, two or even three Belgian dishes - dine on seven dishes during a dinner tour that is highly regarded for tourists to Brussels. If you’re coming here to experience what I think is the European foodie capital, you should experience the Culinary Evening tour.

While the evening food tour is an excellent option for dinner, you’ll definitely want to overindulge on dessert. There is absolutely no better option for this than going on a chocolate tour, and one of the best chocolate tours is the Ultimate Chocolate Experience.

There is just one more thing for you to enjoy, and that is to try the many different and unique Belgian beers. You can do this on the four-hour Belgian Beer and Brewery Tour, a private tour that teaches you about the brewing process and let’s you sample a whole host of beers. On top of all this, you’ll tour the Cantillon brewery and even learn to brew your own beer. What more could you ask for?
