The most popular way of eating in Brussels is to buy a waffle at one of the many waffle stands in the city or buying Belgian Frites from similar stands, these are twice fried for extra crispness an are arguably the best in the world and although locals usually have a helping of mayonnaise to accompany them, other sauces are available. Those are the most popular ways to eat but perhaps the most popular dish is mussels, although they can be served many ways, steamed in a white wine broth seems to be the popular choice.
