If you’re a glutton for culinary experiences, you could pack three gourmet capitals in one delicious day, starting from Belgium. Our guide takes you from breakfast in Brussels to dinner in Paris – with time to spare for a gentle afternoon stroll in London.
Thanks to fabulous seafood and cuisine from all over Europe, Brussels is an underrated foodie destination. The smell of waffles and frites wafting through the streets may be impossible to resist, but healthy, wholesome fare has really taken off here, too. Take this cosy café in St Gilles: the fluffy buttermilk pancakes are to die for and the açaí bowl’s the colourful, energy-packed start you’ll need for the day.
