Brussels is another European capital that is definitely worth visiting (in fact, I think all of them are!), especially if you like good food. Indeed, whereas Amsterdam doesn't have much to offer in this field, Belgian cuisine is one that I really enjoy. A lot of dishes contain beer and cream, thus being rather heavy but delicious. They are especially good in winter. Oh, and I almost forgot Belgian ales, which are simply the best in Europe.
This being said, I also made sure to find a couple of cigar shops so that you don't have to waste time locating your favorite cigars when you're in town. The first one (pictured above) is called Le Roi du Cigare (Cigar King) and it has the Habanos Specialist label. It's located in the East of the City Center (the center being the Grand Place, probably the most beautiful place in Europe) at 25, Rue Royale (Google Maps >). It features a nice walk-in humidor with a wide choice of Cubans and non-Cubans. I noticed that the non-Cubans are always the same in those European shops - some Ashtons, some Davidoffs, as well as Macanudos. You won't find many boutique cigars in these shops. You're not here for non-Cubans anyway, am I right?
The second shop is called Walter B and, as far as I remember, the man that you can see in the picture below is the owner. The place is smaller, but you will still be able to find the Cuban references you are looking for. Walter B is located West of the Grand Place (82, Quai aux Briques, Google Maps >). Plenty of nice sea food restaurants near this shop.
As usual, if you live in Bruxelles and/or know some other good places to buy/enjoy a cigar, please share them in the comments below.
