Local Cuisine

Many believe Belgian cuisine to be just a blend of French and German gastronomy, but Brussels is developing a unique culinary style all of its own.  If you don’t already know what you would order at a Belgian restaurant, keep reading.  

When searching for authentic Brussels food, be sure to look for Lapin à la Gueuze, which is succulent rabbit cooked in wheat beer.   Another staple in the foodie community of Brussels is Poulet à la Bruxelles. It is chicken steak packed with Brussels sprouts and cheese, and then fried in beer and butter. Though it does sound like an artery clogger, this dish is seemingly a mandatory one for most restaurants in Brussels.  Usually served with rice, it is often topped with Swiss cheese and a delectable milk sauce!  Finally, if you’re not stuffed, be sure to order Dame Blanche, which is simply Belgian vanilla ice cream coated in thick Belgian chocolate sauce.

These authentic Belgian meals can be found at number of restaurants including Amadeus, Au Vieux Bruxelles, Balthazar, Bazaar, and Belga Queen. When dining in Brussels, leave your inhibitions at the door and prepare to feast on mouth-watering meats with signature sauces!
