Belgian Beer Cafe, Adelaide

A mark of a good restaurant is when I will come back each year to use my Entertainment Card as I know it guarantees me a good meal. This is my third year coming back to the Belgian and this place doesn’t disappoint.

Sometimes I kick myself for not going on Mondays when they have half price mussels ($15 yo!), but when you crave mussels you do what you gotta do and just pay normal price for them. I got the Paddestoel where the mussels are steamed in white wine, field mushrooms, confit garlic, spring onion, cream, truffle oil and cracked pepper. The sauce has a creaminess with a fragrant truffle oil punch that tastes like light and tangy flavoured chips. A slight chew on the mussels with it infused from the tasty sauce was oh so good. I’ve had mussels in Belgium and I reckon we do it better in Adelaide :P

The 1 kilo mussels also comes with a side of chips and mayo. The Belgian does really good chips with the outside crispy and crunchy with a fluffy, potato inside. That house-made mayonaise is light and whipped with a tanginess that doesn’t make it too heavy but I must add the mayo and the Paddestoel does get heavy together with all that creamy texture.

The most ordered dish on our table was the duo of duck. I’ve tried their confit duck leg before and can vouch for it’s deliciousness. I did manage to trade a mussel for some duck and it is still a delicious dish. Tender, juicy duck had a fresh herb flavour lingering throughout. Served with sauteed silverbeet, sweet cherry glaze and soft celeriac puree that I thought was mashed potato.

Great food and good atmosphere where I see me coming back for a 4th time next year to use my Entertainment Card :P
