I went to Brussels last week for a little trip.
I decided to randomly walk around. Left, right, left, right, …
Some places were familiar but most of them weren’t.
I arrived at the business side of Brussels by the time my stomach warned me for noon.
Yes, there are snack bars in that area. But I wanted to try something different than a sandwich.
At first I thought I had to go back to the center because all I saw were little restaurants and I didn’t feel like spending much. I didn’t even had that much money with me.
After a few left and right turns, I arrived at a square. It was right in front of the European Commission.
Many little (and bigger) restaurants surrounded the square.
I searched for something a bit more budget friendly and there it was: Tout Bon.
It looked nice so I went inside. Why I decided that fast to go there? Because it was raining!
If you enter the store, it looks a bit like Le Pain Quotidien. Wooden interior, a little bakery section in front and a large table. I know, Le Pain Quotidien has more large tables than Tout Bon. But I didn’t really mind, I was all alone after all.
I took a slice of bread with smoked salmon. It was delicious! Just the right amount of butter on it. YUM.
My tea made me feel nicely warm inside. I had plenty of time so I enjoyed my lunch while it was raining harder and harder outside. I imagined me sitting there several times per week to write my blogs. I know that would be awesome. All I did now was read the newspapers on my tablet while sipping my tea.
If you visit Brussels, pay it a visit. You don’t have to eat there, you can just buy some of those delicious chocolate pastes 😉
