Food is a big deal in Bruges! Belgians in general really love to cook and eat. The best and most authentic way to enjoy Belgian food is by dining at a local’s home. People from Bruges just love having people over and preparing a delicious meal for them!
Over a Belgian beer or a good glass of wine, you and your local host can chatter away about the history of Bruges or any other topic that might come up. After the main dish, your host might serve you one of the famous sweets from Bruges, like the ‘Brugse acht’, a glazed cookie, ‘Brugs beschuit’, toasted, sweetened bread or ‘Brugse sigaretjes’, hollow or cigar-shaped cookies.
