Must Eat Mussels In Brussels

WE WERE FAMISHED AFTER WALKING ALONG FEW BLOCKS OF LANES AND ALLEYS.... despite the creamy waffles in our tummies, it was time to call for a proper meal before we headed back to our homestay.

Oh, Aaron was telling us that we must not leave Brussels without tasting their fresh mussels!!  He definitely had done his homework well, I didn't know that at all... So on we walked and walked, we went in search of Mussels!!
nope, it was not along this alley....
They have all kinds of food here, from Italian to Mediterranean, middle-east and Spanish...
...but no mussels are seen....
And when we were almost giving up and stopped for a breather here, 
the word "Fresh Mussels" was right in front of us!
This sidewalk cafe was just directly opposite where we were seated....
Nice ambience....
My hungry look!
So....What shall we drink?
We ordered this... Aaron's suggestion..
Cheersss!!
As for the food.... 
These came first... I wonder if they are bottomless... but we never asked....
Chicken fillet with their special sauce.... (16 euro approx)
Yes, now I remember... the sauce is cooked with BEER!
MUSSELS!!  (22 euro approx)
AND they are so FRESH!!
 The mussels in one POT!
Thank goodness we didn't order a third plate.....
OK, one more picture before we dug into the FOOD!
The Mussels seems to be endless!
Their tomato and spices blended so well with the fresh mussels....
So.... how was the food?
This expression says it ALL..... !

  1. Not a fan of mussels but yes, I would eat - not bad with creamy cheesy sauce like what was in the chicken fillet. Looks good.

    2. The ones I ate not so good because there were sand or other things in the mussels, not washed properly but I ate from one of the eateries along the pedestrian walkways so maybe cheaper that's way but it was way back in 2003.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
