A Belgium Waffle in Brussels

Last weekend I visited Brussels, Belgium, for the first time and was very excited to try out one of the city’s world renowned specialities ~ none other than the Belgium Waffle. I couldn’t wait to share this mouth-watering photo of a liège waffle from Maison Dandoy, an artisanal bakeshop with a few locations throughout the city. The waffles in Belgium are essentially street food, usually served take away-style on a plastic dish, and eaten while strolling through the charming winding streets. Works for me. There are endless topping choices available – from fruit to ice cream to a simple dusting of powdered sugar. In true form, I chose a liège waffle with warm chocolate sauce and sweet chantilly whipped cream. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves…

I highly recommend checking out Maison Dandoy on your next trip to Brussels. I bought a few other delights from this adorable shop that I will share next. In the meantime, enjoy these snapshots from Grand Place, the central square of Brussels!

    The waffle was good, but the Wafels and Dinges NYC still takes it… now if they only started serving http://www.sintsixtus.be/eng/brouwerij.htm

      Yes, Wafles & Dinges NYC certainly is authentic and the lines in Astor Place are justified. Plus, Wafles & Dinges serves delicious speculoos sauce on their waffles and Maison Dandoy sadly does not :(
      Westvleteren was the coup of the weekend!
