Friday (Foreign) Food
It is Friday at last, and I don't know about you, but I could use some good food. How about a lovely Belgian waffle (which we actually ate in Amsterdam, I think)? A nice, dense, sweet, but not too sweet waffle, with real chocolate syrup (none of that corn syrupy Hersheys junk).
Not a waffle person? How about mini-pancakes? These little beauties are from the cheese market in Alkmaar. Fresh and hot off the griddle. I am making myself drool.
And of course, we need something to drink. This lovely libation is a cherry beer - tart and tasty. Benjamin imbibed this one at a restaurant on the covered shopping street in Brussels.
If you prefer a more traditional beer, here is one from our beer tour in Brugge. I even tried this one. I think I prefer fruity beers myself, but that is what is great about Belgium: there is a beer for everyone!
And, should you need some solid food after all the sweets and beers, try a rice table at an Indonesian restaurant. You get all these little dishes, with enough for each of you to get a taste. So very good... Is it lunch time yet?
