Of course, street waffles. Wow.
And lots of lattes. One time my waitress asked if I'd like my coffee with "chantilly" and I just said "no thank you," thinking it sounded like some kind of alcohol. You know, like Irish coffee? Then the person at the table next to me ordered her's with chantilly and she got a lovely mound of whipped cream on top!
Best waffle ever.
More street food -- frites or French fries. There were several sauces to choose for dipping and tiny forks to dip with.
Most refreshing and surprising drink of the whole trip.
The strawberrry and whipped cream waffle above was for breakfast. This chocolate and banana version was an afternoon snack.
Jeff had a beautiful apple pancake.
Candy shops everywhere! I think these little sugar cones are so pretty.
Before our bike ride, we grabbed a quick lunch at Friterie 1900 in Bruges.
There was a whole case of various items to be fried. You order whatever you want and they toss it in the fryer.
We ordered fish bites, meatballs, cheese, chicken and potatoes. I couldn't eat like this too often... but it was pretty unique.
After our bike ride, our guide recommended a local place call Passage.
I ordered the "waterzooi" listed at the top of that menu page. Basically, chicken stew.
Claire ordered shrimp stew.
Jeff had a big slab of ribs.
I am so thankful that Francoise sent me home with some authentic Belgian treats! We enjoyed them so much!
At the top are the Jules Destrooper crispy butter waffles which are PERFECT with coffee as a mid morning snack. (Or anytime.) Luckily, I have found these at my local grocery store. In the middle are wonderful sweet honey breads and at the bottom are speculoos cookies. Those had to be carefully rationed and divided between the four of us. Wow. I'm predicting speculoos will be a hot new flavor trend!
Back to reality. We're having grilled chicken salad for dinner. Ho hum.
