The best eating experiences in Brussels

From sugar-dusted waffes eaten hot off the griddle, and frites from street kiosks, through to fne dining and Belgian classics, Brussels’ dining scene suits all budgets.
The restaurant-heavy Rue des Bouchers

Snacks and takeaway


Brussels’ best fromagerie was established in 1902 and retains its original glazed tiles. It still stocks a beguiling array of cheeses, which you can also try in sandwiches with fresh salad, wrapped up ready to take to a nearby bench (00 32 2 512 3510; Rue du Vieux Marché aux Grains 4; 9am–6pm, to 7pm Fri & Sat, 9.30am–5pm Sun; sandwiches from £3.50).


Frying since 1948, this classic little fritkot (takeaway chip kiosk) serves chips twice-fried in beef fat and paired with the traditional mayo, or sauces including curry and provençale. L’Autobus, First Bar and L’Esperance-Chez Bernard are some of the cafés on the same square that allow frite eaters to sit and snack if they buy a drink (; Place Jourdan; 11.30am–1am Sun–Thu, to 2am Fri & Sat; chips from £1.90).
