I'm a Canadian from the Toronto area and I will be going to Brussels for the annual International Seafood Exhibition April 22-24. I'll be setting up a bit earlier, so I'll be in town for about 10 days.
I'll stay near the expo centre for 3 days and then near Sint-Gins (just south of Brussels) for 6 days. I may have a day or two entirely free to tour the city, take pictures, meet people, and EAT! However, I'll be working usual hours, so a quick bite for lunch is likely and some decent time for dinner!
I'm looking to spend about 100 euros a day on food and transport, so i'm looking for good, cheap lunches and mid-range restaurants for dinner! In fact, I'd like to try as much food as possible that I can't find in America/Canada.
From what I've read in on other threads, Belgium is known for their beers, frites, seafood, chocolate, and ... waffles? (is that true?) ... i'm excited! any recommendations are entirely welcome!
also, any places to see and things to do in the immediate Brussels vicinity would be much appreciated!
