"Very special dish" Belgium Local Custom Tip by IngaA

Belgium Local Customs: 246 reviews and 239 photos

In the traditional Belgian cuisine there are a lot of recipees with a special,, (I don't know how to call it correctly) , plant of vegetable - not fruit but eatable plant.
It is called "Chikkory" (I'm not sure that I spelled it correctly but at least it sounded like that)
The taste is very specific, I must say.
M y friend told me that it is very popular but I was not impressed,, I am sorry :(((
But when I told it to my friend, she just burst out laughing. She said : "Don't worry, nobody of my Ukrainian friends (She has several) liked it. U r just typical representative of your nation"
But I don't disrecommend it - noway. Maybe even on a contrary, U should try it because it is the only way to know if U like or dislike something.
