Good Place for Mussels

I would consider Brussels Sprouts to be a mid-range restaurant rather than a high-end one, given that its prices are not very expensive.

I have to admit, for the longest time, I have not thought of patronising this chain of restaurants because of its misleading name. I had thought it would serve brussels sprout dishes as specialties!

I am usually not a fan of mussels because of a particular distinctive smell/taste mussels have. But I have to say that the ones at Brussels Sprouts do not have that smell. The mussels were cooked well and I only tasted the flavourful broth that came with the mussels. While the mussels were not big compared to those I had in Belgium itself, I thought the meal was satisfactory considering its price.

excellent mussels!

Unlike it's name, Brussel Sprouts doesn't actually specialise in that vegetable, but Belgian mussels. They serve fresh mussels cooked in a large variety of ways, whether in clear broths, creamy soups, or gratinated. My favourite would be the gratinated a l'escargot, where the mussels are prepared the same way one would prepare escargot - in breadcrumbs, garlic, and butter. The combination of flavours is absolutely divine and dangerously addictive!

A close second in my favourite list would be the ostendaise. The mussels are served with a thick creamy soup similar to lobster bisque. A must-try if you're a seafood lover.

While most of the flavours were delicious, I was less impressed with the Asian range of flavours. Perhaps it's just me, but I thought that the combination of mussels with flavours like thai sweet chilli and tomyam was just weird.

Those with a large appetite need not worry as the mussels come with a free flow of fries!

Last but not least, do remember to try their main courses. For the adventurous, the beef tartare would be a fun, interesting choice.

The service is also nothing short of excellent! Even when the place was nearly full, the waiters and waitresses were still very alert and attentive.
