Pete and I went to Brussels last weekend and we didn't have moules frites, we didn't have waffles, and we didn't eat copious amounts of belgian chocolate. Fail? No way!
We did have...
A delicious salmon and broccoli quiche and yummy healthy salad:
A spinach burger (!!) from lovely organic vegetarian cafe Greenway, wherethe friends we were staying with used to go every week when they studied in Gent:
Boudin blanc while perusing the Jeu de Balle fleamarket:
Falke's delicious home-made lasagne:
And a sneaky cone of frite et mayo after some serious sampling of beers at Plasir Flagey:
And lots and lots of amazing beer.
So we learnt there's more to Belgium than the old culinary clichés. But the absence of moules prompted me cook some this week!
