It was good to catch up with friends Tom and Nick yesterday in Brugge. At the conclusion of the Procession of the Holy Blood we headed off in search of chocolate (which isn’t exactly hard in Brugge). We decided to head to The Chocolate Line (where Jane & I had purchased some excellent chocolates previously) although we managed to walk past it and a further 500 meters down the round. Oh well, no worries there were many other chocolate shops around.
After eating a couple of superb chocolates we decided a beer was needed so headed to the De Halve Maan brewery where I enjoyed a Straffe Hendrick Tripel (one of the best beers I’ve had whilst away) and the others had Bruges Zot Dubbel.
After the brewery we headed to Brugs Bertje where they have more they 300 hundred Belgian beers. This little bar had an excellent vibe and was packed; we were very lucky to get a table.
We then decided we were in need of food, so headed next door to The Habit where it was a lot quieter.
Flemish Beef Stew and fries accompanied by a Belgian beer is a superb mix. The meal was simple but very flavoursome and the meat nice and tender.
Jane had the Waterzooi that she found was okay, but after tasting the beef stew wished she had order that instead.
