Frites of Belgium

Sooooo today I’m posting about another delicious staple food we had in Brussels :) FRITES (French fries)….That are made with Belgian¬†Bintje¬†potatoes then cooked twice and served in a paper cone! Then the sauce…oh the sauces! Tons of different kinds <3 mostly mayo based and really flavorful! The fries themselves are thick cute and delicious but the sauce definitely makes it exciting lol

 

On the left is the mayo tarragon sauce then the BBQ mayo then the curry mayo (My favorite!)

Yep, so these are all over Brussels with little stands everywhere and restaurants make them too! Good stuff!

Oooh Belgium Waffles!

So I took a trip to Brussels, Belgium! And what was one of the top things on my list to try??? WAFFLES! :D …So you think you like waffles right? Those gross flavorless sponge things? …well these waffles are nothing like that! Why am I so excited!? lol

Well, this is the first waffle I tried! (and the best!) so they pour the batter in fresh, or used a recently made waffle and heat it up in the waffle iron. Then it comes out all hot and chewy and FULL of flavor! Seriously, this thing did not need the chocolate stuff. The flavor was sweet and very vanilla-ey. Just a perfect balance <3

 

 

 

 

 

There are an endless amount of toppings! Ice cream being one of the most popular. Also fresh strawberries and whipped cream :)

There are several different kinds of waffles too! This was much lighter and fluffy. The flavor was also a bit more subtle.

Anywhoooo, if you ever make it to Belgium…TRY THE WAFFLES.
