Despite being really affordable, everyone that reviews Belgian quick bites agrees that the quality and taste are excellent. When you walk the streets of Belgian towns, you literally will be drawn to the vendors by the tasty aromas that range from fried onions, sausage, burgers, and fries to the vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, and other spices used in waffles.

If you happen to be on vacation in Belgium in the fall, then a glass of mulled wine will warm you up. Gluhwien as it is called locally, is a red wine with spices, and sugar and is served hot. It is an indispensable drink in a cold and wet Belgian climate.

Of course, the food review would not be complete without mentioning Belgian fries and sausage. Belgian fries are double fried and served in a paper cone with a choice of mayo, ketchup, mustard, or other sauces. Links are served on a baguette with tons of fried onions.

One more traditional item worth mentioning is a tartiflette. Tartiflette is the result of French influence and is a hearty dish made of potatoes, bacon, cheese, cream, and garlic.
