The Poechenellekelder is right opposite Brussels' most famous - and kitsch - monument, the Mannekin Pis statue, and most people's first reaction would be that it is a classic tourist trap to be avoided at all costs. But go down the steep steps that lead into "The Puppet Cellar" and you'll soon realise that you've stumbled on a wonderfully authentic bar (that includes outdoor seating if this weather continues). The barmen couldn't be more friendly, and the decor is more like a surreal museum than a pub. Apart from the great beer list, they also prepare strange traditional snacks like "tete pressee", a tasty brawn, and "kannibal", the Belgian version of steak tartare served on an open sandwich.
