Wandering the Fairy Tale Streets of Bruges


The New York Times describes Bruges as “fairy-tale streets, gingerbread houses and winding canals that lead to old windmills,” in one of its travel stories. The article also mentions that this former Viking city is famous for beers made by Trappist monks, and recommends visiting a historic bar called Cambrinus. Say no more.

So much food to choose from! And if you think that’s a lot, this pub has four HUNDRED different beers on tap.

That's a lot of options

This looks like a good choice! For madame, le poulet avec champignon! (Which is chicken with mushrooms and deliciousness.) Also, why is this portioned for a Viking?

And, for other madame, beef Flemish beer stew. Meat and beer cleverly combined in one dish.

Stew, frites and beer!

And now, time to head back to Brussels.
