Brussels Culinary Evening Tour

10. Brussels Culinary Evening Tour

If fries and mussels already sound appealing to you, this tour is a must-do activity in Brussels. Whilst you can have dinner almost anywhere, it is difficult to get an inside look into Belgian cuisine. Often you need help to choose which dishes to select, not to mention varying prices and quality. This evening tour is a unique gastronomic and cultural experience as it combines the highlights of Belgian cuisine with the history behind its best dishes. While the majority don't think French fries are a delicacy, wait until you try Belgian frites with mayonnaise. The list of tastings will include Flemish beef stew or grilled salmon (upon your taste). Since cooked meats and artisanal cheese require a refreshing cold drink for better digestion and differentiation of flavors, you will be introduced to famous Belgian beers (selected accordingly to the type of dish served) as well as red or white French wine, upon your preference. During the dinner, your tour guide will strive to offer you as much information as possible regarding Belgian cuisine, Belgian habits or anything you would like to know about the country. The location of the tour will provide an authentic Belgian atmosphere to offer you the chance to interact with Belgian culture. Even if you're full after your main course, there will always be room for a light and crispy Brussels waffle topped with chocolate, cream and strawberries, along with a flavored cappuccino. During the short walk between the venues, discover the Royal Galleries and get a glimpse of Brussels at night.

Our family went in November and really enjoyed the tour. It was perfect since we were only in Brussels for a day and it was a quick summary in less than 3 hours. The fries were awesome and we really enjoyed the beer sampling.

A pub tour through Brussels on New Year's Eve, I can only recommend it! We had a lot of fun and at 7:00 p.m. we had a little "Schwipps"! New Year's Eve was really cool. I would book again in a heartbeat!

Mark was very knowledgeable, and the tour had a lot of "must sees" along the way. We had a great time, the food was delicious, and we loved trying all the different beers!

Both simple and complete, both in terms of "history" and manufacturing processes.

so great! lovely host and great range of beers and history!
