On Monday I spent 10 hours in Brussels, extending a “layover” on my way to Copenhagen to squeeze in a meeting with a client. Our client spoiled us with a mini tour of Brussels and a very nice lunch. Here’s what I ate–and a bit of what I saw-in Brussels.
Not shown: The slab of quiche I downed before thinking to take a picture. 😉
Our client drove us around town to see the sights, and then took us to the Grand Place where we walked around and saw the Mannekin Pis and the feminist response, Jeanneke Pis. A nearby chocolate shop also got in on the fun.
For lunch, our client took us to l’Atelier de la Truffe Noir, which is known for its truffle dishes. We all got “scrambled eggs with truffles.”
It was so rich! I wouldn’t be surprised if they were the best truffles in Brussels!
After our meeting we were off to Copenhagen. Since it was the end of a very long day, we ate at the same place I enjoyed on my previous trip to Copenhagen. Here’s the last bit of my dinner–an appetizer of sausages with sauerkraut.
It went well with my beer.
When we got back to our hotel, it was just after 10:oo pm, but the sun was just setting.
Do you like truffles or do you prefer to stick with the chocolate version?
How much would you pay for a hot shower?
