Chicken Salad & 1/2 kg House MusselsTaste: Chicken salad
- that was delicious. couldn't have been better. The chicken was nice and warm. the dressing was just right, not too rich but enough. I was wondering what the dressing was- it is called Roquette Blue dressing, consist of mayonnaise and blue cheese. But it isn;t as heavy as Blue cheese dressing where it is too rich. This dressing is a little sour but little creamy. it is really nice. Vry refreshing and adds to perfect touch with the crispy bacon and sun dried tomato. I loved it. I can rave on and on about the salad. It is a must.
1/2 kg House Mussels
- I had to choose between the House Mussels or the Marinere Mussels. i usually rder the Marniere Mussels, but today for a change i decided t have house, which is tomato, cream and chives. There was only two siz prtion to choose from which is 1/2 kg and 1 kg. I chose 1/2 kg which is enough for me myself. The mussels came with fries and 1 piece of bread (not white bread) and mayonnaise.
Mussels, fries n bread
big fat mussel
It was quite a big pot of mussels. The mussels were so big, I was quite amazed. there were juicy and fresh. I loved them. But the sauce was on downside. was not creamy enough. i prefer The marinere mussel more. I like the taste of wine and cream.
The Chips were lovely. Realy taste of potatoe, they were crispy and fragrant. Smells really nice. could not sto eating it with mayonnaise and dipping it into the sauce.
The bread was rather dull. Not too hard, was soft, but just did not seem warm or freshly baked. Did not finish the piece of breadConclusion:
Before Frites Belgium on Tap, this place used to be Belgo. Belgo in UK is very famous for their Mussels, and the mussels in belgo in Hk was good too. I quite like Frites Belgium on tap. he food seems to be better. Even the menu is clearer. IWhen it was belgo, the restaurant seems to be split into two parts, the inside and outside. The seatings outside were big tablesa dn some sofa, and some what seems like the outside had nothing do with the inside as it was out in the open. I like it alot more now, the outside seemed to have reunited with the Inside which makes it seem ALOT bigger. We did not make reservation for lunch, when we were greeted by the manager he asked if we had reservation. We answered no, and he gave a funny reply and seemed as if they were full, but then showed us to our seats. The restarant was half full and was about 75 percent full when we left. There were alot of people who works round here. The lady who served us had a very heavy accent which i did not understand her. She seems bit rushed and did not really answers my question, or i did not understand her. But she was very hard working, and refilled our warm glass of water very often. But after i was full, I had not yet finished the chips. she came over and took away my food, hich i thought was unneccessary to clean up RIGHT AFTER I finish. Bit unpolite.
When the bill came it was round about 400 hk dollars which surely was not riht. I realized the bill showed that we ordered 1 kg of mussells. We were certain we ordered 1/2 kg, but was skeptical as could they have served us 1 kg? So we spoke to the waiter and he said he wil check. He came back later with the ammendments, whole bill came up to 300 hk dollars. So next time if u do come to this place, please check ur bill!!! Overall i like this place and will come back. their lunch sets do not include mussels which is a shame. But their lunch set seems really good and a bargain.
