The city of Liège is blessed with a wonderful selection of restaurants, cafés and diners in which to enjoy delicious local food or exotic menus from around the world. Whether you want to find a simple affordable meal or a more adventurous dining experience there is sure to be a venue that suits you.
Local specialities are popular with tourists and locals alike. Look out for boulet-frites (meatballs with chips), rognons de veau (veal kidneys) or salad liegeoise (with beans, potatoes and bacon). For those with a sweet toothed, you should make sure you try the delicious gautres (oval waffles). Another delicacy to the region has to be the local version of gin, Pèkèt, which is a juniper spirit that can be either natural or mixed with a flavour such as lemon or strawberry. It can be enjoyed as a drink or as an ingredient in a number of local recipes.
Eating out in Liège is an experience that should be relaxed and enjoyed. Take time over your meal, savouring the different tastes and textures that are served to you and then perhaps finish with a pleasant cup of the smooth strong café Liègeois (coffee).
