Patak's Indian products...yay or nay?

Yes.

I also like their oven bake biryani sauce. It's great and is really easy.

Brussels - restaurant recs needed for: romance and European Quarter, and chocolate information?

Thanks, that's really helpful. Good to know about the chocolate as well - I've been surprised at a pick n mix style chocolate shop before when I got to the till.

I second Ganapati - It is just amazing. You must have the chocolate cake.

London - Rasa Sayang in Chinatown

Yeah this place sucks. C&R is also not great.

Try Malaysia Kopi Tiam on Charing Cross Road and Bonda Cafe (i think it's a cafeteria/restaurant in the basement of a Malaysian student hostel).

They will tell you to get the lamb chops. Get the lamb chops.
Also get the mango lassi.

Brussels - restaurant recs needed for: romance and European Quarter, and chocolate information?

Hi,

I'm going to Brussels this weekend and am looking for a romantic restaurant. Does anyone have information on: Bleu de Toi (http://www.bleudetoi.be), Chez Marie (can't seem to find a link) or Les Salades de Gaspard (http://www.lessaladesdegaspard.be), or if there are any other 'romantic' recommendations?

We're arriving late Friday night and are staying in the European district. I'm having trouble finding reviews for a good restaurant close by for dinner around 10pm - so far I've fixated on Les Brassins (the only thing possibly turning me off is that some of the reviews say it's down a quiet, dark and scary road) - is this a good restaurant choice, or is there better?

And of course, I'll be getting chocolate! My list includes Pierre Marcolini, Wittamer, Mary Chocolatier, Frederic Blondeel, and Neuhaus. Would anyone be able to give me a vague idea of how much the chocolate in these places actually cost? I don't want to get too overexcited choosing chocolates and be crushed by the expensiveness.

Thanks!
