What is Belgium’s national meal?

Hey there!
Belgium doesn't have an officially designated national dish, but a few iconic dishes certainly represent the essence of Belgian cuisine:
Moules-frites: This combo of steamed mussels and crispy fries is a Belgian favorite. The flavorful mussels, often cooked in white wine or beer, are served with a side of perfectly cooked fries.
Stoofvlees/Flemish Beef Stew: A hearty stew made with beef, onions, and often simmered in Belgian beer. It's a comforting dish, full of rich flavors.
Carbonnade flamande: Similar to the stew but usually prepared with beef, onions, and brown ale, then slow-cooked to perfection.
While there isn't an official national meal, these dishes are beloved across Belgium and represent the heart and soul of Belgian culinary tradition.
Enjoy exploring these delicious flavors! Cheers!
