On the way from Amsterdam to Paris, we stopped at Brussels, Belgium. We had just enough time to see the Grand Place and the surroundings. But I’m not complaining at all. I could stay there all day looking at all those chocolate shops. Every other shop in Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert is a chocolate shop and what’s not to like about that. I was so busy gawking at the stores that I didn’t take a lot of pictures.

And all those chocolate storefronts…
And the stores…
This is where I discovered my most favorite Belgium chocolate. Pierre Marcolini’s store was like a gallery and the chocolate tasted divine. One taste of the violet chocolate ganache truffle and I was sold. And I’ll talk about their macarons in my Paris write-up.

-the store. Notice all the boxes – they are not jewelry boxes – they are chocolate boxes.
-single origin bars and chocolate barks and more…
And of course, how I can I not talk about the Belgian Waffles – you could find them everywhere.
