One of the main reasons for visiting Brussels is moules-frites!!!! Instead of going to the touristy area for mussels, we went to Place St. Catherine, which used to be a seafood market but now has tons of seafood restaurants.
Mom and I both ordered moules frites (she had the moule frites in white wine while I had the marinière). This was AMAZZZZZZING!!! Seriously! The moules were fresh tasting, fat and succulent. The pot seemed not to have a bottom because I kept eating and eating and there were still mussels! AND.. there weren’t a single closed mussel! The fries were thick and crispy!
My dad ordered the 4 course menu @ 28 Euros.. which is quite a steal cause it has soup, 2 entrees and dessert.
Just come to Bij Den Boer for their mussels….. it’s the best ever! I wish I ate here the 2nd night!
FAIM? OUI OUI!!!
