The waffle of Brussels is the typical waffle you can find out in other countries, it is made through a liquid paste that is placed in a waffle maker and while it cooks, gets the shape we are used to. While the waffle of Liège is more like a cookie and it's considered the most authentic!

Did you know that there's a law in Belgium that regulates the composition of the chocolate? That means, in this country there's no such thing as bad chocolate!
