That ... might be a bit of an issue. While Brussels does have a ministry of agriculture, (staff: two, luckily not full time), they administer a grand total of ... one farmer. And this one fellow only lives in Brussels, his fields are half a mile away, in Flanders.
In Flanders fields. I see what you did there. I think.
Yeah ... wasn't sure to leave that one in actually ... since the real 'Flanders' fields' are a province and a half further to the west ... felt like I was cheating on geography (even IF she's a fickle mistress)
BTW I was in Brussels in the 1980's and I loved it, even though nobody had ever heard of iced tea and they kept putting mayo on the fries.
Iced tea was indeed a virtual unknown until Lipton started selling the stuff in the late 80s.
Yes, mayo is the staple on fries. Or rather, was, these days most 'fries shacks' have at least a dozen ... erm ... dressings ... condiments? What's the word?
Strange barbaric people.
Well, that's what Julius Ceasar said. Hey, at least we're consistent!
Even more full of evil pagan chocolate croissant eating Muslim sinners these days, I'm sure.
What was it? 200K muslims in Brussels alone? Some 600K, nation wide?
Islam is one of the official religions these days. Has been since the Turks and Moroccans managed to agree on the color of shite ... well, most of the time anyway.
And there are plenty of shops that sell hallal stuff, including hallal chocolate and pastries ... though, wouldn't ANY sort of chocolate be hallal? Except when it's a praline with bacon filling ... which actually exists ... do we have a puke smiley?
