Another reason to visit Antwerp: Canelé d’Anvers. This classic pastry from Bordeaux is becoming a star in Antwerp thanks to Dirk from DeSmaaknatie, where you can find the classic one, or with saffron or Elixir d’Anvers. And isn’t this a beauty with his soft and tender custard centre and his dark, thick caramelized crust. Love at first sight, bittersweet at first bite. And even if you are not a fan (how’s that even possible?), you surely will be of the other great food in this intimate hotspot or of Dirk himself. A little bit Provence in the centre of Antwerp! Bordeaux you were saying? Never heard of! Check out his instagram for more pictures.
