I had always enjoyed Belgian desserts specially the pastries. Chance for you now to have a plenty. This holiday season, from 10 December to 19 January, the Tram Experience will be serving an extra festive 3 course menu concocted by Brussels brightest culinary ambassadors, two starred chefs Lionel Rigolet from the Comme Chez Soi and Pascal Devalkeneer from the Chalet de la Forêt. The menu will be followed by a dessert by haute chocolatier Pierre Marcolini.

The Tram Experience had been a showcase for the finest food that Brussels has to offer Since May 2013, passengers can discover in just one meal dishes by two or three different chefs, sometimes in surprising combinations. This four handed cooking experience makes the Tram Experience, already a unique concept, even more unique! New feature compared to last year is that the Tram Experience is no longer just for chefs, as some menus will now include desserts by some of our best chocolatiers and pastry chefs.

Chefs for all seasons

Brussels has no shortage of culinary stars, with a wide range of styles and influences. Each season, a new team of Michelin-starred chefs will come on board to create a menu. The first chef will create the amuse-bouches and the starter, while the second will be responsible for the main course.  And half-way through, so every six weeks, they will swap to keep things interesting, so the chef
behind the main course will tackle the starters, while his or her colleague will move on to the main course.  Since May, the Tram Experience has already had the honour of presenting dishes by the famous chefs such as Giovanni Bruno (Senzanome), Gaëtan Colin of (Jaloa), Stefan Jacobs (Vadouxvent) and Kamo Tomoyasu (Kamo), and desserts by the chocolatiers Laurent Gerbaud and Pierre Marcolini.

For the next round all dishes are created on board by chef Denis Roberty from the catering company Les Garrigues, following the very specific instructions provided by the chefs who created the dishes. His culinary talents and technical prowess guarantee the highest quality. The meals will be served by experienced, attentive staff who have been given very specific training for working in this very unusual environment.

As always, there are eight trips per week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings at 8pm, Friday and  Saturday evenings at 6.30pm and 9.30pm, and Sundays at midday. Departures and arrivals are occurring from Place Poelaert except on Fridays where the departure of the Tram Experience is at the Tram Museum, Avenue de Tervueren 364, 1150 Brussels. And for those who want to prepare their pockets well, the price for three courses, amuse-bouches, champagne, wines and water is €99 per person.
