yes, rob's gourmet market might just be the most overpriced supermarket in belgium. and yes, shopping there you'll see more middle-aged women in couture shouting into their cell phones in a mixture of russian, french and english than attending the oscars. but it's foodie heaven.
any place that sells more than four dozen international cheeses and has three racks of colourful tea flavours is my church. oh, and did i mention the selection of exotic vegetables and fruit is constantly sprayed with a fine mist of water, in order to keep it fresh? go. now.
