Belgium is world-famous for its Belgian beer and gourmet chocolates. Tourists flock to the country each year to taste its light beer and take a tour in one of the many breweries. As well as sampling its chocolaty delights, and seeing them made by hand for that unique delicate taste, in small shops over Belgium. Belgian chocolates are of such a high standard that even the Swiss imported their basic recipe. But there is another export that gets our mouth watering; Belgian waffles. And Belgian escorts know that you do not have to go too far from London to find that authentic Belgian taste.
The Belgian Food Company is based in St Johns Wood and specialises in Belgian waffles, with handmade ice cream or just caramelised with sugar. It is a tiny shop but that doesn’t mean its waffles are; you just have to take them away to enjoy that genuine Belgian taste.
Wafflemeister is in Cromwell Place and is perfect for that sweet taste. Go bananas with the original hot waffle, whipped cream, nuts, chocolate fudge and of course, sliced bananas. Or try the Oreo, with whipped cream drizzled with chocolate, just one of the mouth-watering waffles for that sweet taste of Belgium at your fingertips.
Your wish is their command at My Old Dutch in Kensington. Anything you wants on a pancake, you can have. This place gives that homely feeling and even your Belgian escort would agree. If you do not have a sweet tooth - then the chilli con carne pancake may be just up your street. Or try the asparagus pancake, complete with olives, cheese, spinach and red onion. But if you are looking for a traditional pancake then the Old Dutch is a winner, with chicken, ham, and peppers, but be sure to visit on a Monday for those special offers. These pancakes are value for money and the biggest you will probably find this side of the English Channel.
But the way to a lady’s heart is with chocolates, so why not treat your Belgian escort to something extra special. Sandrines Chocolates has been making luxurious Belgian chocolates for over 25 years and started as a small family business, that now has many loyal and regular customers. You won’t need to ride the Eurostar to Brussels or Bruge for that Belgian taste. Just pop into their East Sheen shop for their range of specially selected chocolates.
But Belgium’s finest export has got to be Godiva. A brand named after the Lady Godiva that was started by a master chocolatier 75 years ago. Their unique combination of a richness within smooth chocolate is a winning formula, and there are now eight branches of Godiva in London alone. Making this one of the most loved chocolateries to come out of Belgium. So why take a trip across the Channel when you have everything Belgian here that you ever need.
