"Chocolate" Chocolates Tip by Sjalen

Chocolates, Brussels: 58 reviews and 80 photos


No one would forgive you if you went to Brussels without bringing back chocolate :))) Having said that, bear in mind that real Belgian pralines are considered fresh and should not be kept long. My own favourite is Galler but I also love the "fruits of the sea" at Moeder Babelutte, a Flemish chain with a store near Manneken Pis. Here is a picture of Leonidas just because their shop at Grand Place is always open late for the tourists. If you don't want to splash out on a big box of pralines, any supermarket will sell you perfectly decent bars and pralines too, it's just never as fresh. But it's still often better than the chocolate you get outside Belgium. Luxury chocolate can apart from in the city centre also be bought at both Midi station (by Eurostar) and at the airport.

What to buy: Manon! White coated coffee pralines...oh...

What to pay: 12-25 euro will give you a decent box of mixed pralines depending on brand.
