Press Release


Located in the heart of Brussels, Hotel Amigo has created the opportunity for guests to experience the tradition of Belgian street food, within the beautiful surrounding of the hotel’s Ambassador Ballroom.

Across Europe, ‘Street food’ has become the food trend of the moment, but in Belgium, it has long been a tradition, with stalls and stands lining city streets, particularly in bustling Brussels.

The term ‘Street food’ describes the wide range of ready-to-eat food and drinks sold by vendors in markets, on streets and throughout cities worldwide.

Brussels is leading the way with this exciting culinary concept due to the long standing tradition of street food within the city. For years, the streets of Brussels have been scattered with stalls selling delicious Belgian specialities. Walking around the city, there are a variety of options to taste and try. From special ‘frites’ and their accompanying sauces, to seafood and traditional soup, to ‘Pistolet’ bread roles and sweet and fluffy waffles - the list of Belgian delicacies is never ending.

Hotel Amigo has created a new event concept, the Belgian Street Food Evening. Combining the lively atmosphere of the streets of Brussels, with the very best selection of Belgian food stands, Hotel Amigo will transform the Ambassador Ballroom into a Belgian street food feast, creating a casual yet refined evening for guests to enjoy.

Perfect for corporate or team building events, as well as large dinners or celebrations, the Belgian Street Food evening allows guests to experience Belgian food in a completely unique, yet traditional atmosphere. Guests will discover some of Belgian’s most famous dishes, prepared in the hotel kitchen with freshest ingredients, in an eclectic environment.

The Belgian Street Food evening includes:

  • A welcome cocktail, Champagne and soft drinks
  • Seven Belgian themed stands including cold starters, Pistolets bread rolls, main courses, “Friture” specialties, Belgian chocolates and desserts, Belgian beer tasting
  • Wine, soft drinks, water, coffee & tea
  • DJ & Light Jockey
  • The Ambassador ballroom will be uniquely decorated with candles, plants and other traditional Belgian touches, as well as wooden tables and benches, for up to 80 guests

Rate: 180 Euros per person, for a minimum of 60 guests
