Eating the Globe: Belgium

I went to a Belgian bar/restaurant for dinner last night. The bar had a sizable variety of Belgian beers on tap. Because it was nearly deserted, I got to sample a bunch of them, one thimbleful at a time.

When we sat down for dinner, there were no other dining customers. Not a good sign. By the time we ordered, two mothers with screaming young children decided to sit at the table next to us. Great.

I got the Chicken Waterzooi. It's a creamy chicken soup with carrots and leaks. It was a bit too salty.
