Sweet Dangers

While Brussels might be the heaven for some, the city can become a very dangerous place for others. Risks loom at every corner and it is seemingly impossible to walk into any of them. You might think that I am going to talk about petty crimes such as scams, pickpockets or probably terror attacks? No. Those dangers are nothing in comparison to these ones.

Yes. Sweets. They can be found everywhere in Brussels. They exist in various forms, savours and more importantly, they are irresistible. Once you step into one of 200 odd pretty shops, you already gave up on those sweet dangers. All your senses will be stimulated and you would have few qualms about leavingย Brussels without tasting at least one piece of chocolate. For this reason, the city is risky for those who are on diet and people who are not allowed to consume sugar. But if you cannot withstand, just succumb to such temptation! After all, those sweets are an essential part of Brussels.

    Aha! I think your next post will need to be titled “best dentist in Europe”. Such a mind-blowing assortment… (I’m so happy to have guessed the city correctly when I saw the title of the post ๐Ÿ˜„)

    My favourite in Brussels is Pierre Marcolini’s macarons. They are some of the best I have ever had. Have you tried them? Alongside those delicious pastries are frites which promise a direct ticket to fatty heaven.

      Oh yeah, the most dangerous stuff in Brussels! But I did not have any good photos, except the one in Neuhaus that I posted in the previous post. I was so busy eating and trying, forgot to make photo ๐Ÿ™‚

    Succumbing to the temptation of chocolate is something I can imagine myself to be in when I go back to Brussels (hopefully for a longer time) one day. Fortunately it’s almost dinner time here, so I don’t need to bear the torture for too long.

    oh my… what are the things in the second picture? I remember trying one somewhere in Paris, but I’m not sure if it’s the same thing!! I even prefer salty food over sweet food, but these balls were just too good.

      They are egg white from Aux Merveilleux. They melt in your mouth! The shop keeper told me that there are shops in Paris and Berlin too. I guess that’s where you tried them ๐Ÿ™‚
