Belgian Chocolate Secrets Hidden in Brussels

June 15, 2011 2 Comments

As we posted yesterday, chocolate shops in the Grand Place of Brussels abound - some may say more than anyone could possibly need. There is in fact a crush of small and big name chocolate shops. Exploring chocolate shops with the locals however, many recommend a walking trip to the Sablon.  Definitely worth the walk from central Brussels, this quaint rather up market strip of cafes takes the chocolate shop to a new level.

The strip of shops including cafes and more chocolate boutiques sits in the shadow of a glorious gothic  Cathedral.

Of all the chocolate shops perhaps Pierre Marcolini was a stand out. The boutique itself is gorgeous and the chocolate flavours  more innovative and tasteful. A number of  ranges are offered.
