After the antique market we went to a couple of chocolate shops. I’m becoming very picky when it comes to chocolate. We tried Patrick Roger’s chocolate shop first. Wow, not only is this chocolate very good, but the chocolate art is so neat to see. I highly recommend going online and checking it out. Patrick uses chocolate as his sculpting material.
We also went into a Galler Chocolatier shop. This is my favorite chocolate in Brussels! I purchase Galler chocolate at least once a week from the grocery store. I had no idea there was a shop in Brussels. When we went inside I told the saleswoman all about my chocolate purchases since we moved here and that Galler is my favorite. The saleswoman gave us a complementary chocolate of our choice and then we created a chocolate box to purchase. Before we left the saleswoman added a few more complementary chocolates to our bag. Galler Chocolatier is the best! Another good chocolate shop I can’t forget to mention is Nehaus Chocolate. Oooh, that chocolate is really good.
Before lunch we decided to walk to the Musical Instruments Museum. The building itself is a sight to see. It’s an Art Nouveau building. The museum has a free audio guide. The guide needs no assistance. Once it’s near an instrument with an audio sign the audio guide automatically plays a song from that instrument. It’s a fun way to tour the museum. As we toured I saw some people dancing, tapping their feet, and smiling. Adam and I even danced a little with some of the music. At the top of the museum there is a restaurant. The restaurant has amazing views. We wanted to have a glass of champagne, but realized if we wanted a view we would have to dine. Otherwise we would be at the high-tops in the bar area with limited views. I’m putting this restaurant on my list of places to dine. We shall go back.
We were both getting hungry and decided it was time for lunch. Adam found a brewery that he wanted to go to. It’s called Delirium Tremens Brewery. Before we moved to Brussels, I was able to find some of their beers in World Market. What a fun brewery. Heads up if anyone plans to go here, they do not serve food. You can purchase a bag of chips, and little items like that, but no meals. After two delicious beers Adam and I were feeling pretty good. The alcohol content in beers here are a lot higher than standard beers in the US.
Just a few blocks away we were able to eat at O’Reilly’s Irish Pub. All the TV screens had Rugby on. I don’t understand anything about that game.
Going to go eat a piece of chocolate now. Cheers!
