I am arriving in Brussels on the 28th of December and spending new years in Amsterdam. I have searched the boards for food recommendations and I have found a few. I thank those who posted those messages. If anyone has new recommendations for "chowhound" type restaurants please inform me with as much detail as you can. I love all cuisines. Any "must" visits? Or dishes/ cuisines I cannot find in the US? I would much rather avoid tourist places unless of course the food is actually the best.
I also am on the look out for a place to stay in both cities. I do not think I want to spend more than $100.00/night, but would spend that.
Thank you in advance,
