What to eat and drink
As they say, when in Rome, do as the Romans do. So, when you visit Liège, tempt your taste buds with these tasty treats:
Salade Liégeoise (Liège Salad) – this winter salad includes green beans, potatoes and bacon, and is usually eaten warm.
Boulets à la Liégeoise (Liège meatballs) – also known as boulet sauce lapin or boulet chasseur, this is a classic Liège dish of large pork, veal or beef meatballs in a sweet and sour sauce which contains Liège syrup.
Café Liégeois (Liège coffee) – a delicious combination of lightly sweetened coffee, coffee flavor ice cream and Chantilly cream. It’s worth noting that while this dessert comes from France, it was renamed during the First World War in recognition of the bravery of the inhabitants of Liege.
Gauffres de Liège (Liège waffles) – sweet, chewy and perfect for a treat for you (or the kids!).
Sirop de Liège (Liège syrup) – made from evaporated fruit juices (usually apple and pear), Liège syrup is usually eaten on bread, added to sauces or as a pancake topping.
