Like its seasonal foodstuff namesake, Brussels isn't the most popular or immediately appealing item on the European plate.

It's a functional metropolis without the showy, turkey-and-all-the-trimmings appeal of Paris, Amsterdam or London. Think a little creatively, however, and the Belgian capital reveals charms all of its own. Ornate architecture, delicious beer, and quality street food (mmm, frites) are the obvious ones; superb vintage shopping, hip bars, and a buzzy, cosmopolitan vibe are more unexpected treats. Barely two hours by train from central London, Brussels is well worth a weekend of anyone's time, as MyDaily recently discovered.
