Typical dishes include Lapin a la Geuze (Geuze being a naturally fermented beer from the Brussels region, and lapin being a rabbit), Stoemp (a delicious dish based on a potato, carrot and onion sauce with additions depending on the region, such as sausages), Salad Liegeoise, Chicon Gratin and of course Moules Frites (mussels and chips).
Frites, or chips (UK English) / fries (US English), are very popular. The best place to enjoy Belgian frites is at a friture (frituur in Flemish, fritkot in Bruxellois, the Brussels patois) which is a temporary construction usually strategically placed in busy squares. Well known fritkot in Brussels are located on Place Jourdain, Place Flagey and at the Chapelle near the Marolles where Rue Haute / Hogestraat starts.
Another Belgian speciality is beer. Although a comparatively small country, there are a large number of beers available in a range of different styles. Almost every different beer has its own unique drinking vessel, usually a glass of some description.
Restaurants serving Belgian cuisine can be found in the Bourse area and in the Vismet / Marche aux Poissons area, near the church of St Catherine.
