London Eats World: Belgium

London Eats Belgium

In my London Eats World series, I'm on a mission to eat my way around the world without leaving London and this week I'm eating in Belgium. Well, Belgo Centraal in Covent Garden, one of the four Belgo Restaurants in London.

The Belgo restaurants offer an impressive collection of Belgian beers which each come in their own unique glass. The food menu is quite magnificent as well featuring traditional Belgian dishes such as mussels and chips, carbonnade and stoemp, but also more generic food such as burgers and sausages.

I opted for the traditional mussels in a kilo pot which were flavoured a white wine, garlic, onion and celery broth. They were served with a side of Flemish chips with a creamy mayo you can only find in the Lowlands. My friend opted for the Provencale Mussels which were served in a rich tomato, garlic and herb sauce.

Although my friend detected some funky smelling mussels, mine seemed to be all okay. Although they could've used a bit more seasoning and garlic.

Of course we finished our meal with a Belgian waffle topped with chocolate ice cream and cream. It wouldn't have been a proper Belgian meal if we hadn't.
