waffle in Brussels

Despite its touristy airs, this emblematic Brussels brasserie, located in the heart of the Galerie du Roi, serves succulent home-made pastries. Tradition obliges, the gourmets rush there especially to taste its famous Brussels waffle, light and crispy as desired. You can order it sprinkled with a simple cloud of powdered sugar, topped with a shower of whipped cream and fresh fruit, or accompanied by a delicious old fashioned hot chocolate.

Mokafé Taverne – 9 galerie du Roi – Open every day from 7 am to 11 pm.
Our other favorite addresses: Maison Dandoy and Pierre Marcolini to test the Liège waffles.


With chocolatiers on every corner, Brussels is like a huge box of chocolate from which one could never stop picking. But if we had to be reasonable and select only two, then we would probably choose Chocopolis. Why would we choose Chocopolis? Because it is the only chocolate maker in the city to have its own workshop within its store. The chocolates that we taste are made in an artisanal way, and directly under our eyes: we love it!

And of course in Etterbeek, just in front of our building Rezdidentz, is the family chocolate factory “Vandenhende”. created by Kenny Vandenhende in 2007.
They manufacture in an artisanal way all their products such as ice creams, sorbets, cookies, speculoos as well as their pralines.

Chocopolis – 110 rue du Marché Aux Herbes – Open every day from 9am to 8pm
Vandenhende – 643 Chaussée de Wavre – Open from Tuesday to Saterday from 10am to 6pm , Sunday until 1pm

Eat on the go in Brussels

Located a few steps from our Rezidentz building, on the corner of Place Sainte Catherine, this no-frills address has been delighting fresh fish lovers for decades. Here, fish soup, fried calamari and other tuna burgers are enjoyed standing up, accompanied by a good glass of white wine. Beyond the quality of the fish, and the very reasonable prices (6€ for a bowl of soup), one comes for the good-natured atmosphere and the enthusiasm of the staff who chant the names of the customers at each order!

Noordzee, Mer du Nord – 50 place Sainte-Catherine – Open every day from 11am to 6pm.

Enjoy your meal !
