If I had a good experience at a local business during my travels, I am going to tell you about it!
If you want (cheapish) beer (I say ick to beer – but it holds the world record for selection!), and if you are looking for some interesting decor and friendly English speakers, this is certainly one of the places to be.
2. HOSTEL: Hostel Grand Place – Haringstraat 6-8, Brussels.
Clean – really clean – and located at the foot of everything, this is a hostel I can highly recommend.
3. FOOD: Le Funambule Waffles – Rue de l’étuve 42 1000 Brussels.
Located walking distance from Manneken Pis, this waffle shop has been in operation since 1867, and truly they have the most delicious waffles I have ever tasted!
Unfortunately, I have had a few negative experiences in Brussels – particularly in restaurants located within the tourist district. Grumpy attitudes, bills that don’t match our orders, and general disregard have plagued my visits.
Thank you Ingrid D for your suggestion!
‘Check out the pubs and restaurants near the Congress Column; they are cheaper and staff is a lot friendlier!’
