The second day into our Belgium trip was a travel day, nothing very exciting. We left Brussels and took the train to Ieper. Once in Ieper, we stopped and had lunch and a beer!
The little bar only had a few beer options, but you cant complain when Westmalle Dubbel is on the menu!
The only bar food they offered was spaghetti. I found this odd. I’m glad only Jack ordered because it was the biggest platter of spaghetti I’ve ever seen! It took us both to finish it.
From there we took a bus to the very small town we were staying called Poelkapelle. We got great rooms at t’Oude Gemeentehuis which was run by a young couple, Steijn and his wife. We had a great time talking to them and getting to learn about the area and the B&B.
For dinner, we decided to walk around and see the town. The town was only one main street with very little food offerings, but we found a small café called Point A.
I got a delicious Flemish beef stew and a Rodenbach from Brouwerij Rodenbach in Roeselare, Belgium at 5.2% abv.
And we were serenaded throughout dinner by the lambs and goats on the other side of the hedge.
