"The Brussels waffle: (also referred to as the "Belgian waffle") is prepared from a yeast-leavened batter, often lightened with beaten egg-whites, to give a light, crisp waffle. It is often served warm by street vendors, dusted with confectioner's sugar, and sometimes topped with whipped cream or chocolate spread. They may also be eaten as a dessert, served with fruits, whipped cream or ice cream." (from Wikipedia.org)
Sound good? They are. My favorite, from the shop pictured above, was strawberry with the works. In this case the works included sugar injected into the waffel itself with a heavy wipped cream, the type that is basically unmeltable ice cream, which makes it pretty much amazing.
Brussels was an intersting place to visit, lots to see, but I am only going to talk about the waffles (plus a few more pictures). That is how I want to remember Belgium.
Brussels Town Hall at Grand Place, one of the coolest squares I have visited (plus the waffles can be found in great abundance here)
Atomium (btw, for you travellers out there, at the Atomium stop on the Brussels metro, there is a huge movie theater that shows movies in english if you run into a rainy day)
Some dogs running around chasing a ball, I guess this is where you have to play if you live in the city, bummer.
