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.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t
