Brussels: Belgian tea at the Wiltcher's
At the heart of Brussels, the Wiltcher’s that we’ve already talked about a few months ago is “the” mythical palace, situated on Avenue Louise. This must-go address of the Belgian capital inaugurated a new ultra-cozy place, “The Library” with a decor irresistibly evoking an English novel salon. Besides the joys of reading that each one is doing here: a rich selection of books on the city of Brussels and art in its many forms is available to the hosts, it treats you with a superb Belgian Afternoon Tea. Pastry chef, Michaël Derolez, aims to highlight local and seasonal products: espuma gingerbread, wonderful mini, “financiers” with cherries, lemon cake, scones … And for the salty touch, « vols-au vent” and sandwiches bread to share. Not to mention traditional marshmallows, candies and cuberdons happily regressive. These feasts get watered with a range of rare teas, served in the rules of art, not to mention the Champagne at the top of the ladder! A. F.-M.
