NYT in BXL

aka 36 hours in Brussels. Let’s see:

  1. Beers on the Grand Place – Trappist in Le Roi d’Espagne – Done
  2. Stew in Les Brassins – Done, done, done. And yes, I life in the street where Audrey Hepburn was born.
  3. Jazzy Bars… though the bar sounds kind of interesting.
  4. Break for Art Nouveau – Horta Museum – done. Pas mal… though not worth 7 euro in my point of view. I’d rather advice the Museum des Beaux Arts. 2 euro more for much more value.
  5. Moules et Frites – I know the second restaurant but not the first. On the to-do list.
  6. Yeah Flea market in Les Marolles.
  7. Any Belgian chocolate is good. The best is actually Côte d’Or chocolate spread; yamee.
  8. Royal Cuisine – … a tiny bit beyond my budget
  9. Midnight club – On the to-do-list.
  10. Le pain quotidien is way overpriced. Much better is the Sunday brunch in Le Belga – Flagey square.
  11. Château de la Hulpe – on my to-do-list since I bought the bike last summer. Seems like a really nice place to go.

I don’t know how they put that list together but if you really have bit more than 36 hours in Brussels (and enough pocket money), it is not a bad itinerary to start with.
