Belgium is widely known for its Chocolate, Waffles, fries, beer and chocolates which has proven to be one of Belgium’s major tourism. Chocolate factories and a chocolate museum are a must see tour while you are in Belgium. Cuisines have also influenced by neighboring France, Germany and Netherlands.
Fine beers are seen by many as part of Belgian culture. One of the many beers with the high prestige is that of the Trappist monks. Technically, it is an ale and traditionally each abbey’s beer is served in its own glass (the forms, heights and widths are different). There are only seven breweries (six of them are Belgian) that are allowed to brew Trappist beer.
Belgian cuisine traditionally prizes regional and seasonal ingredients. Ingredients typical in Belgian dishes include potatoes, leeks, grey shrimp, white asparagus, Belgian endives and local beer, in addition to common European staples including meat, cheese and butter. Belgians typically eat three meals a day, with a light breakfast, medium or large-sized lunch and small dinner.
