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.

  4. Your creamy chicken looks so good, looks more sedap than the mussels, hehe, coz I love creamy stuff ma.. And call me jakun, I'm more attracted to the basket of bread with butter.. I can have a lot of bread with butter if the bread is warm and nice.. 10 blocks of good quality butter, 5 pieces of bun/bread, kekekekeke..

    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.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
