What to expect
If fries and mussels already sound appealing to you, this tour is a must-do activity in Brussels for a relaxing afternoon. Whilst you can have dinner almost everywhere, it is difficult to get an inside in the Belgian cuisine when it is hard to choose which dishes to select and prices and quality might be a reason of doubt. Brussels Culinary Evening Tour has made the choice easy for you. Instead of going for only one main dish, why not try 7?
This 3h+ evening tour is a unique gastronomic and cultural experience as it combines the highlights of the Belgian cuisine with the history behind them. While the majority thinks the French fries are a delicacy, wait until you try Belgian frites with mayonnaise. The list of tastings will include Flemish beef stew or grilled salmon (upon your taste) as well and will make sure you will ask for the receipt.
Since cooked meats and artisanal cheese require a refreshing cold drink for a better digestion and differentiation of flavours, you will be introduced to famous Belgian beers (selected accordingly to the type of dish served) as well as to red or white French wine, upon your preference. During the dinner, where you will be served the main dishes while enjoying a glass of beverages, the experienced tour guide will strive to offer you as much information as possible regarding the Belgian cuisine, the Belgian habits or anything you would like to know.
The location of the tour will provide an authentic Belgian atmosphere, in order to offer the customer the chance to interact with the Belgian culture for a more valuable experience. Even if the main dishes will leave the impression that nothing else could fit in your stomach anymore, there will always be place for a light and crispy Brussels waffle topped with chocolate/cream and strawberries, along with a flavoured cappuccino, that will definitely allure your senses. The waffle tasting will not take place in the same location, in order to give you the chance to settle and process the variety of flavours discovered during the dinner. During the small walk between the venues, you will discover the Royal Galleries and will have a glimpse of how Brussels is at night.
For language preferences, the tours are conducted in English, French, German, Dutch, Russian and Arabic and private tours are available upon request.
The groups are formed of maximum 15 persons for an increased individual experience and are led by wise experts that will answer any question raised, not only about cuisine, but also about history.
It is highly recommended to not bring infants on the tour for the well being of all customers, including the parents that might not fully enjoy the culinary experience. The atmosphere is not appropriate for infants due to the fact that is it a tour within which alcoholic beverages are served.
We remind the tourists that the legal age of drinking in Brussels is 16.
