Croque at Le Cirio in Brussels

As we arrived in Brussels, I do as I usually do - I take a late night snack at Le Cirio. This time I traveled with friends and we planned to meet at this charming old Tavern by Brussels Stock Exchange, and I knew what I would order - a Croque Cirio.

Le Cirio is one of my favourite hangouts in the Belgian capital. They serve the most refreshing traditional Belgian beer "au fut", on tap. I chose a cold Leffe Blonde.

Le Cirio offers a menu consisting of a few traditional warm specialties, salads, cold cuts, and Croques - delicious toasts.

You may choose from a traditional Croque Monsieur, Madame ( served with a fried egg or poached egg), or a Croque Cannibale - with raw ground meat.

I ordered the delicious Croque Cirio, the house specialty, a toast with cheese, tomato sauce and pancetta, served with salad home mayonnaise and conichons.

A delicious evening snack, when you're not in the mood for a large meal. If you arrive in Brussels on an evening flight, this is definitely something to try.
