Hello Fashionistas, I traveled to Brussels, the city of beers, chocolates and waffles! As a major fashion and food lover, this was quite the adventure. I did lots of shopping, my favorite stores were Cool Cat and Bershka...(I had to stuff my suitcase like no other for my return to Canada) and I finally tried Flemish food, it is very unique in flavor.
Belgium was my first destination in Europe, upon arrival I was amazed at the amount of detail in the architecture as well as the intricate and avant-garde landscaping. In Europe, everything is designed with the utmost convenience and refinement.
My partner in crime and I dined at some great restaurants such as Belga Queen, Midi Station and De Noordzee. Belgians really take pride in their quality of food and service, everything was tasty.
Traditional Flemish Dinner at Midi Station
Flemish style asparagus, super tasty!
Traditional Flemish dish, homemade Mechelen cuckoo vol-au-vent.
At the fishbar at "De Noordzee", I'm obsessed with their shrimp croquettes.
The hype about Belgian waffles is legitimately justified, I had the Brussels waffle at La Chaloupe d'Or in Grand Place and I have not recovered from the awesome taste yet, can't stop craving it.
Amazing Belgian beers at Delirium Café, as seen in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most beers on tap.
This won't be my last time in Belgium, there will be a part two to this post since I will have to go back for a much needed dose of Hoegaarden Rosée beer which I strongly recommend to fashionistas who like fruity beers.
This was quite the foodie post, so next on my list is the Momu fashion museum in Antwerp, which is a very stylish city. I'd love to get more knowledge on successful Belgian designers such as Dries Van Noten, Ann Demeulemeester and Martin Margiela, so lookout for this post in the near future!
