During a hectic working week it’s always good to take a break and have a few drinks and a nice lunch with some friends at work. On this particular occasion it was Danny’s farewell lunch.
We went to the Belgian Beer Café. Perfect timing as it was Mussels Wednesday. From Midday to 10pm its half price mussels. They also have a special menu of two courses for $25.00 to celebrate their 10th anniversary.
I ordered the Mussels Poulette. These are cooked with white wine, bacon, vegetables and a touch of cream. Normally $26.90 but because its was Mussels Wednesday it was only $13.45. The mussels were plump and poulette had a nice flavour and loaded with ham and vegetables.
The mussels came with the Belgians signature chips with mayonnaise. The chips were very oily this time around. It wasn't up to its normal standards.
Kat and Danny ordered the A l'Escargot. These are half-shell mussels, grilled with garlic butter. Normally $25.90 but $12.95 for Mussels Wednesday
