Which is rated as the "best" chocolate shop in Brugge ? Is it Dumon ?
Bit subjective that one sval_100
My advice is try some from a few different places that you like the look of. The ones you like the best are the "best" ;-)
Suggestions for ones to try might be
Enjoy finding the "best". Please share your findings on return :-)
I have spent many years sampling the chocolate offerings of the fair city of Bruges and agree that best is very subjective.
Dumon - reliable, what you would expect when someone says "Belgian chocolates" and the price to quality ratio is among the best in the city.
Neuhaus - always delicious, but seem a little overpriced to me, and now available in th UK so I tend to not bother.
Chocolate Line - always inventive, this guy knows his stuff, describes himself as a "shockolatier" as he like to surprise with some of the fillings. He is great for unusual chocolate shapes and models. And the window is always a must see.
BbyB - relatively new kid on the block, amazing flavours, at the higher end of the price range, but I think they are so amazing I don't mind. The maker is a Michelin starred chef I believe who loves experimenting. I recommend no. 58 sea salt and liquid caramel - divine.
As with many things you will find chocolate in Bruges for every price bracket and every taste - some will be good value, others will leave you feeling slightly disappointed ( in which case just try the next shop - it won't be far away ).
I notice where you are from - if alcohol is an issue for you make that clear when asking for a mixed box - several popular fillings involve booze - not a lot but enough to trouble some.Edited: 03 July 2014, 17:03
