Mabox does Brussels!
21 December 2015
This year's Christmas Party certainly did not disappoint.
To make a change from our usual London-based festive celebrations, this year we decided to take a day trip to the capital of chocolate, beer and all things yummy.
Despite a painfully early start at St Pancras, the team hopped on a Eurostar and soon perked up over a breakfast of Prosecco and croissants.
Our first stop when we arrived was, naturally, a trip to a brewery. We enjoyed a great tour of the Brasserie-Brouwerij Cantillon – the oldest in Brussels – followed by beer tastings (which did not go down so well with everyone).
The rest of the day was spent avoiding the rain by hopping between pubs and waffle shops. We also all enjoyed an enormous Belgian style lunch of Moules Frites at Chez Leon, where Tim in particular had a fantastic time making his way through an impressive seafood platter.
Mussels in Brussels!
Sea snails… yum!
Feeling very full of beer, chocolate and waffles, we reluctantly made our way back to the Eurostar where we all snoozed our way back to London.
Brussels – thank you for having us. All in all, a fantastic Christmas Party!
