A Guide to the Restaurants of Brussels, Belgium
Gastronomic delights await foodies on tour in Brussels, Belgium. The local cuisine has a unique flavour and style, but the city also pays homage to cuisines from around the world. Butcher's Street, for example, is home to a large number of international restaurants that cater to a range of budgets and tastes.

For something local, simple and relatively cheap, head to Les Brassins with its brasserie set up. Patronised mostly by students and locals, the restaurant offers good quality as well as good quantity from a small menu of items.

On the other side of the spectrum, there's Aux Armes de Bruxelles, which caters to an upmarket clientele with haute cuisine. Everything from the food to the wine is highly praised by those who have visited the restaurant. As a result, reservations should be made in advance as the high price tag doesn't appear to dissuade customers from filling up all the tables each night.

If mussels in Brussels sounds good, visit Chez Leon. Popular in France, the restaurant serves up mussels, French fries and beer in a variety of ways along with other traditional Belgian cuisine.

Arcadi is one of Brussel's most popular vegetarian restaurants. The bistro style restaurant offers a lengthy menu with conservative prices. Dig into everything from quiches and pastas to salads and sandwiches. And don't forget to ask for brussels sprouts to round off your Brussels experience. Arcadi isn't strictly vegetarian, though; it does offer bacon with some of the dishes and not everyone considers dishes that include eggs to be vegetarian.

Those who would prefer to sample something beyond Belgium's local flavours (at least for a break from the norm) may enjoy La Kasbah. Serving up the tastes of Morocco, everything from the food to the conversation of the waiters (in Arabic) to the décor is distinctly Moroccan. Try out the popular favourites of tagine, couscous and mezze. Top it all off with a tasty baklava.

A number of restaurants in Brussels are converted from interesting origins. In't Spinnekopke was once a stagecoach inn and now serves up hale and hearty country cuisine washed down with over a hundred varieties of artisanal beers. Similarly, La Manufacture, which now serves Mediterranean and Asian cuisines, was once a leather goods factory. Not to be outdone, La Quincaillerie, a former hardware store, is now a popular favourite with local businessmen.

In keeping with the varied nature of the city, the restaurants of Brussels, Belgium are just as varied and provide for hours of entertainment... for a foodie anyway.
