A curious topic which is usually the most difficult to compare between countries is the local cuisine. And although Colombia has some fantastic variety of dishes from their bandeja paisa, arepas, sancocho, and more, they can’t quite compare to the Belgian delights.

Fill me in

Any Colombian citizen will say that their food is the best, and it most likely is, but it’s just different. The Belgian cuisine offers authentic waffles bathed with the best Belgian chocolate, and also have the must-have local beer to enjoy any meal.
