“Only mussels and chips” oh, the humanity!

It wasn’t the name of the cafe that was interesting, but they had mussels on offer for lunch. I found out the name later when I paid up at the till. I ordered a Leffe brune beer while my other half had a Leffe Blonde. Both enjoyable with the accompanying food; a sampling of grilled mussels and steamed mussels (pdf). Sometime later, both of us were a stuffed, as my order of mussels came with chips, and we were all getting on a bit on the soused side. The real tragedy in all of this? There was so much of one dish to eat we didn’t finish any of either dish. Though my wife did later have a hankering for steamed mussels. Getting on the piss will do that to you.

  1. You’d need six crates of Brown Ale to finish that seafood meal off! “I hope Monsieur was not overdoing it last night?” 😉

    • Could have done with some brown ale, last night, but alas, I was flying from Auckland to Shanghai. The meal has long since past, but long remembered.
