Welcome to Belgium, where the official native language is a bit uncertain to me. Is it Dutch? Flemish? French? All three? If you're a local here, help me out. The city we had a chance to stay in was Brussels, and it was magical! The architecture here is absolutely incredible!
Aside from the beauty of this place, if there's three things that I remember from our trip here, they're going to be seafood, beer, and Belgian waffles.
Let me start off with seafood. Delicious, and some of the freshest I've ever had. It felt like all we ate here was seafood paella or pasta, and you know what? I'm not even mad. Every single cafe/restaurant was so romantic, and the prices were extremely reasonable for the amount of food you got.
Let's move on to beer. Where do I even begin?
As someone who hates beer, as soon as I had a taste of some Belgian cherry beer, a sista was SHOOK! I had to have more. Thank God Delirium (one of the most famous bars in the world, if not the most famous) was just around the corner, because they literally have HUNDREDS if not THOUSANDS of different types of beer. Mango, banana, raspberry, peach...the flavors are endless! It was pretty packed in there, but the vibes were really cool. So many people from all over the world just having a good time. Definitely an experience I would recommend to anyone visiting.
Also, you haven't lived until you've had Belgian waffles from the motherland.
So fresh! So many combinations! Chocolate, fruit, whipped cream, nuts. I'm getting excited just writing about it.
If you come to Brussels, you can't leave without paying a visit to the Grand Place, which is located right in the heart of the city. It's probably the most important landmark here. If you get a chance, I highly recommend to visit twice. Once in the daytime, and once at night, when the buildings are all illuminated with different colored lights, and you might even catch a live Jazz performance. I mean, does it even get any more romantic???
