I haven’t talked much about food so here goes; I started off the day with a light breakfast at the hostel (fruit and toast). Enjoyed a delicious chickpea, hummus, and zucchini sandwhich while overlooking the city from Place Poelaert-Plien. Ate fresh penne carbonara (with extra thick bacon slices) outside of Grand-Place Grote Markt for lunch. Visited the highest rated frites (fries) stand in Belgium (I’m pretty sure my heart stopped halfway through from all the mayonnaise). And to finish of the day, bought a light noodle salad for dinner.
Although my visits to the Grand-Place Grote Markt and Royal Military Museum were great, the most interesting experience of the day was tasting chili pepper flavored chocolate!
