Belgium has long been known for its culture, history and even its food, especially its historic small cities such as Antwerp. It might be located in one of the smallest countries in Europe, but one visit will help you understand that in the case of this unique city, size truly doesn’t mean a thing. Known for many of its experiences, one of the best ways to truly understand this culture and its beauty is by eating. Ultimate Excursions Travel invites you to come with us as we take a taste of Antwerps best flavors.
One thing that Belgium is known for throughout the world is their chocolates. You will not be disappointed as you sink your teeth into some of the treats made by Antwerps best chocolatiers. The melt in your mouth treats can be fully appreciated with a chocolate tour of one of their fine establishments. Burie is known for their signature diamond shape covered pralines. You can see as the liquid mild chocolate gets ready to mold over them. They also recreate miniature replications of just about everything from dragons that look like they are about to breathe fire to iconic buildings of the world. Make sure you take some extra mementos of your tour to share with friends and family.
Every place in the world prides themselves on their regional delicacies. Antwerp prides itself on the absolute freshness of their seafood. With their close proximity to the North Sea they get an abundance of fresh catches from grey shrimp, to herring and cod. You’ll be simply remiss if you don’t try one of the local favorite dishes of mussels, perfectly steamed in a garlic white wine broth. Antwerp will also end up serving you your favorite fries. Forget the golden arches, the paper coned packed fries served with a drop of mayonnaise will easily put them to shame.
You can never go wrong with taking a big bite out of a city. It is by far the best way to experience what kind of taste the city has to offer. It offers a unique cultural display that is individually palatable to them alone and them alone, a one of a kind experience.
