Chocolate, Beer and Fries Tour of Brussels

Description:

Chocolate, Beer and Fries Tour of Brussels.

On our chocolate, beer and fries tasting chocolate tour of Brussels, we start with a tasting of six pralines, made by authentic Belgian master chocolatiers such as Pierre Marcolini and Mery’s. Also, from the new generation of Chocolatiers like master chocolatier Jitsk, who has been researching further and has come up with new fusions of different flavours and smells. We will be delighted in tasting a unique fusion of flavours: mango with yuzu, cassis with black pepper, coffee with coconut spices, lime kefir with potato vodka, curry with raisins and salted macadamia, … All these blends covered with dark chocolate, a higher temptation. Yeah, Brussels doesn’t just smell like chocolate, it tastes like chocolate.

After finishing the chocolate tasting, we will then go to one of the capital’s iconic bars to try out two spontaneously fermented beers-typical of Brussels -they are still brewed with wild yeast.

Afterwards, we will savour the wonderful “frites” or French fries, in a typical “frietkot” (Frites stall), which is also the only left in the city centre that still fries potatoes in the traditional way We will certainly try them with a good sauce of our choice. It makes our mouths watering, doesn’t it?

We finish our tour at a famous bar in the city centre, tasting two beers whose recipes were created by monks of the Trappist abbeys and are top-fermented beers.

If you want to spend a real gourmet weekend in Brussels, not only tasting beer, but also indulging in chocolates and fries, don’t hesitate to book our chocolate, beer and fries tour of Brussels!
