Belgium is famous for their waffles, but what you may not know is that they have 2 different styles of waffles that are totally unique from each other. The first is the Brussels waffle that I posted yesterday. That’s what we know in America as a “Belgian waffle”. But the hidden secret of Belgium is the Liege waffle. If you’ve never had one, they are LIFE. CHANGING. The waffle is made from a yeasted dough, and it’s much more dense than a regular waffle. But what makes Liege waffles so special are the pearls of sugar mixed into the batter. When the waffle is cooked on the hot iron, the sugar caramelizes on the outside. The outside is crispy and the inside is sweet and gooey!!! Plus, in Brussels you can find many “create your own” Liege waffle shops… It’s kinda like a froyo shop… You buy the waffle and then can add any/all toppings you want!! Nutella and whipped cream are my personal favorite!! 😍 #wafflingaroundbelgium@acprail_intl@visitbrussels@madeinlouise .
We made it to Brussels, Belgium and of course we had to try the famous Brussels waffle!!!! This is what we’d call a typical Belgian waffle in America. But let me tell you, this was the BEST Belgian waffle I have EVER HAD in my entire life!!! The outside was so crispy and the inside was so light and fluffy!!! Still dreaming about this waffle!!! 😍😍😍 #wafflingaroundbelgium@acprail_intl@visitbrussels@madeinlouise .
Pepperoni + Prosciutto = 😍😍😍 Nonna Stella is an fabulous trattoria on a fun foodie street in Ghent. If you’re craving authentic Italian food, you must go here. The burrata and parma ham was AMAZING!! .
We found the most amazing food market in Ghent! It used to be a beautiful old church, now converted into a super fun, trendy food hall! It’s called the Holy Food Market! Check out this crazy hot dog. It’s called the “Gluttony” 😂 It’s topped with guacamole, sour cream, jalapeño mayo and popcorn!! The @holyfoodmarket is a must if you are in Ghent!! .
Found the BEST ice cream in Ghent, Belgium! 😍 The owner is so proud of his homemade ice cream and flavors. I got Nutella, hazelnut, and Cuberdon. Seriously incredible!!
