We were told that Belgians have a quirky side to their nature. Living in France, where Belgian jokes are de rigeur, we were keen to discover this for ourselves. We stumbled on to this shop in one of the main streets of Brussels, near the Grand Place.

Need we say more?

 

Gnomes.

 

Not humble, by any means.

 

A typical Belgian take on the Mannekin Pis.

 

Belgian restaurants are world famous. Covering all tastes, flavours and price brackets, it’s safe to say that we were not bowled over by them. However, service was, in most cases, very friendly and helpful; English is widely spoken; food is adequate, tasty and frites, frites, frites.

This restaurant was quite fun – on le Marche des Fleurs. In T’Spinnekopke.

 

Maybe we liked it because it brews its own beer!

 

To-morrow, we will reveal probably the WORST restaurant we have even been into!
