too full to eat at more than one restaurant a day

I must say that just tasting varied foods, not finishing them, leaves out a good portion of the satisfaction of food for me. I feel like taste is only half the enjoyment, while the satisfaction of eating a filling meal, a full plate, is the other part.

Horsemeat in Belgium

Where do I go to get it?

This is a semi duplicate of the other thread I created, but I figured the subject was unique enough to warrant it. I would very much like to try horse.

And if at all possible I don't want to bust my bank doing it.

I would definitely appreciate any recommendations about where to find the best horse meat; burgers, tartare, steaks, whatever.

Portland Airport Restaurants

Can I get an update on this information? I'll be laid over for 5 hours at like 5:00am, and I probably do not want to bother with going through security again, so I'll be chilling in the airport. Where should I eat?

Any recommendations for pancakes? I was thinking I would spend more time in Bruges, Antwerp and Gent than Brussels, by the way.

i find that 6+ hours between meals makes me feel crappy, and even less hungry sometimes. usually i supplement some fruit or something as a holdover to juice the metabolism.

about Not eating what's given me when it's especially delicious/wonderful/out of the ordinary, that goes against my natural urges. if i order something absolutely delicious the image of its half-eaten remains will haunt me (unless it's not the first time i've ordered it).

i guess eating less healthy foods/refined grains/simple carbs to get the insulin spike could help me stuff in more.

When traveling, how does one make room to enjoy multiple food vendors/restaurants/tasty cuisines in one day without getting too stuffed? I know usually people are looking for ways to eat less, but it seems it would be a shame not to get as much deliciousness as possible while traveling.

Belgium and the Netherlands for a budget gastronomist type

Hello. I am a college aged fellow, about to go to Brussels for a month, there to make detours to Amsterdam and the Hague and maybe Gouda (or wherever; undecided, actually) in the Netherlands before heading back down to Belgium, and probably checking out a few trappist breweries and the Ardenes and what not. I am staying in Hostels and such things; I have little money. Any advice regarding beer, chocolate and good eats would be much appreciated, especially with a budget-minded fellow in mind.

As for me (as a new member) I have read chowhound quite often. I am a somewhat dreadful cook, but have a great and uncontrollable fascination with food, generally making plots for meals way excessively in advance.
