Enjoy fantastic food

Belgium is renowned for its chocolate, and walking tours are available in most major cities to take you through the history of its renowned chocolatiers. There’s so much more to local cuisine than just cocoa-based treats though.

To get a real taste of life in Belgium, hit the streets. Vendors pride themselves on their street food, with mayonnaise-doused frites and freshly baked waffles tempting passers-by. If you’re feeling more adventurous, seek out caricoles – boiled sea snails in a vegetable broth, a real Belgian delicacy.
