When one thinks of Belgium, grand medieval towns, iconic comic strips, and enchanting European charm come to mind. But ask any food lover, and they’d speak of waffles, chocolates, and a plethora of heartwarming breakfast dishes. Inspired by this rich culinary tapestry, SAME SAME Hangout decided to bring a slice of Belgium to Lombok through our “Belgian Breakfast Bliss Week.”
A Culinary Expedition to the Heart of Belgium While the sandy shores and tropical aura of Lombok are miles away from the cobblestone streets of Brussels or Bruges, our culinary journey aimed to bridge that distance. Throughout the week, our menu highlighted the breakfast favorites that have made Belgium a must-visit destination for food enthusiasts worldwide.
Liege Waffles: A Sweet Beginning The star of the week undoubtedly was our Liege waffle. Unlike any regular waffle, the Liege variant is rich, dense, chewy, and delightfully sweet. Freshly baked to a golden hue, these waffles were generously drizzled with organic maple syrup. Each bite transported our patrons to a quaint Belgian café, serenaded by the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and the distant chime of cathedral bells.
Belgian Bacon & Hot Cocoa: The Perfect Pair To complement the sweetness of the waffles, we introduced crispy Belgian bacon – perfectly cooked strips that added a savory twist to the meal. And what’s a Belgian feast without some chocolate goodness? Our guests indulged in rich hot cocoa, a blend of Belgian dark chocolate melted to perfection and frothy milk, making for a heartwarming drink.
Bringing Belgium to Kuta, Lombok Throughout the “Belgian Breakfast Bliss Week,” the energy at SAME SAME Hangout was electric. Tourists and locals, adults and kids, everyone reveled in this unique experience. It wasn’t just about relishing the dishes but also about understanding the stories and traditions behind them.
For those who missed out on this delightful week or wish to relive those moments, worry not! SAME SAME Hangout is committed to bringing many such culinary adventures to you. Stay tuned to our website and Instagram for updates on upcoming events and promotions.
Until then, Bon Appétit, or as the Belgians say, “Smakelijk!”
