Jef, the Brussels King of Snails

Chez Jef et Fils Escargots is an institution in Brussels. 
You can find Jef himself at the Bourse in the center of Brussels and his annex in Anderlecht.  
Delicious snails in their broth are served in a plastic cup for €5, with a glass of white or rose wine available for  €2. 
Jef must be about 70 now, he started this job when he was 13 working with his mother, he enjoys his trade a lot and... his succession is assured.
