Say No to diet - eat chocolate!

BELGIUM | Thursday, 19 April 2012 | Views [488]

When it comes to chocolate - for me this is not a question of quality but quantity. I always thought like this before I came to Brussels - the capital of chocolate in Europe. 

The streets of historical center of Brussels are full of chocolate aroma, it is everywhere. Black, white, milk, handmade and produced on a factory - wherever type of chocolates you choose - it will be unforgettably delicious!

The most famous chocolate fabric is Leonidas with lots of fashionable shops around the city.  But if you travel on a budget I would advice you to go to any supermarket and buy chocolates there for the price 2-3 EUR per box. Believe me, the taste will be the same gorgeous!

The only competitor for chocolate in Belgium are waffles. If you want to play "I'm local" game, never order waffles with cream and fruits, take only with chocolate. It tastes even better than with a tone of cream on it.

Once you're in Brussels it is impossible to resist this chocolate euphoria - chocolates are everywhere. So, forget about your diet and eat! Try all kinds of chocolate - with salt, black pepper, red pepper, lavender, and you can even try a chocolate famous "Mannequin Pis", who pees with chocolate! These small fountains made my day! Incredible thing like black pasta in Italy or herring sandwiches in Amsterdam.

French fries with mayonnaise, waffles and all kinds of chocolates - are a must eat in Belgium.

Chocolate is not just a product or a trade mark for Belgians, it is a philosophy and art. Enjoy this art like you enjoy wine, music and traveling!
