Hello. I am a college aged fellow, about to go to Brussels for a month, there to make detours to Amsterdam and the Hague and maybe Gouda (or wherever; undecided, actually) in the Netherlands before heading back down to Belgium, and probably checking out a few trappist breweries and the Ardenes and what not. I am staying in Hostels and such things; I have little money. Any advice regarding beer, chocolate and good eats would be much appreciated, especially with a budget-minded fellow in mind.
As for me (as a new member) I have read chowhound quite often. I am a somewhat dreadful cook, but have a great and uncontrollable fascination with food, generally making plots for meals way excessively in advance.
