Serious Belgian Streetfood: Snails and Scampi in Brussels

Serving up brothy escargot for only 5 euro a pop.

I don’t even remember where I learned about this guy, but I want to try this as soon as I get to Brussels this fall. He’s a street vendor selling snails and shrimp boiled in broth and butter in central Brussels near the famous Mannekin Pis statue. !!!! Can you imagine digging into such a luscious dish during a brisk fall day in Northern Europe. I can! I’m not really  a snails person, but I’m entirely willing to try eating any creature steeped in broth and butter.

Oh! Now I remember where I saw him, it was an episode of Globe Trekker where the travel does a tour through Belgium and Luxembourg. Immediately after seeing that segment, I did a Google search for the guy and brought up  a great write up of Brussels by London Eater a couple of years ago.

Alright then, who eat snails? I haven’t had them in a few years, but like I said, I’m entirely willing to eat creatures steeped in broth and butter.
