am gonna be in Brussels city centre for 4 days with a teacher and some 10 more people to see stuff regarding the EU institutions.
am looking for places to eat, preferably cheap, and what to expect, whatever kind of food goes.
also am not an expert on beer by any means, so please suggest one or two weissbiers that I should try.
thnx and have a good day :)
Belgian here, if you want cheap places you can go to a "friterie" which is some kind of snack where you can get a "mitraillette" (bread with meat and french fries) and some other belgian stuff (fricadelle, etc.). Regarding beer, you have so many of them that i cant help you ...
You have to clarify what 'cheap' is to you. Food truck? Greasy spoon with a few tables? Affordable restaurant?
Hoegaarden Original White Ale is easy to find and a really nice, consistent witbier.
St. Bernardus Witbier is outstanding and you can get it at Délirium Café which is a must to visit anyway. I would generally avoid all the tourist trap restaurants on the streets leading to Délirium though.
If you want to try a quadrupel style beer, go for the always excellent Trappistes Rochefort 10.
I don't really have restaurants to recommend at that price point.
Go to Tonton Garby for an incredible sandwich for about €5.
Exki is a good chain café selling 'healthy' convenience food like quiche, pasta, soup and sandwiches.
Mykonos on Rue du Marché aux Fromages sells awesome gyros that really hit the spot after a night of drinking.
Le Bistro Porte de Hal serves some basic but solid tastes of Belgium with mains priced at €12 - €18.
Friteries can be found pretty much anywhere and serve various tasty junk food.
