Welcome to food heaven! You are, no doubt, aware that Belgian beers are the best in the world and you probably can't wait to verify this for yourself in the many cool, cosy and pulsating bars and cafes - even if tasting all of the many hundreds of varieties available is an impossible feat. Then there are the chocolates: much better and much cheaper than the Belgian chocolates you're used to. Add the waffles, the fries stalls that will feed you throughout the night, the mussels, the pub scene, the vegetarian joints and fine dining restaurants and the truth is unavoidable: this is a city where it's hard not to enjoy life. This is Temptation Island for foodies but it can also be remarkably inexpensive if you pick carefully. You may not miss our weather much when you leave, but you will miss our food and drink for ever more!
