theres a nice restaurant in brussells by the EU called balthazar Rue Archimède 63 - 1000 Brussels Telephone: +32.02.742.06.00. theres a nice area to walk around at night around the manakin pis by centraal station with an awesome bar called delirium (has over 500+ beers available).

After the +32 you drop the 0

Many kosher places closed recently.

If you must have kosher food, come to Antwerp.

Otherwise stroll the grand place, i.e. main square etc, seeing some highlights.

There are trains from the airport to Antwerp takes around 35 minutes.

I land in Brussels at night and want to leave the following night to AMS via train. From friends, I heard that there is what to do in BRU, but from here it seems like you want to get out of BRU and a popular idea is to go to the castles in Ghent and Brugges. However, I have had a lot of difficulty pieces trains for that trip together - it seems almost as expensive as renting a car. Additionally, I couldn't find direct trains from BRU or ANR to AMS.

Has anyone actually done this day trip and can shed some light on how to best travel?

Turns out I'll be passing through Belgium on 17 Tammuz with a train to Amsterdam on the night it ends. If my train passes through Antwerp with a long enough connection, is there somewhere I can get food in the evening near the train station?

Yup, you can.
ask them if you could stop for a few hours, as there are many trains to Amsterdam starting in Antwerp.

Thank you. Where do you suggest going? I would like to stay as near as possible to the train station. It will still be a fast day, so I need something that'll be open and that I can easily take with me to my hotel in AMS.

What exactly do you need, unclear now.

I need a place near the train station that will be open on 17 Tammuz and that sells something that's easy to take away, like deli sandwiches or something. I want to just pick up food and then get on a train to Amsterdam, where I will eat once the fast ends.

If you stop during office hours, you'd still want an hour to go back and forth

There is, but even 10 mins walk.
You want some buffer zone.
No shower on the train.
