2. Traditional foods in Bruges
Another cool thing to do in Bruges is undoubtedly tasting the local cuisine. The city offers a variety of cafes, restaurants, bars, breweries and chocolate shops. It may seem difficult to choose from the large offer and so we come with tips of places we have tried ourselves.
Our favourite chocolate shops
Who visited Belgium without trying local chocolate might as if he were not here. Bruges is full of Praline stores and every single store is trying to catch your attention with the strangest pralines and kinds of chocolate you could possibly think of. Visiting praline stores is an experience for eyes, nose and taste buds. It is worthwhile to go around more stores and enjoy a pleasant atmosphere that they feature. We decided to bring a lot of chocolate home, as a gift to our loved ones. Our most favourite chocolate praline store is called Chocolates & Happiness and offers a unique assortment that you won’t find in other stores. This is a family business and the owner is a smiling master who likes to talk with his customers. As he is a photographer too, he offers for sale unique gift boxes with his own photos with various topics.
