this past week has been a paiiin because, i miss the beach and the wanderlust in me is screaming to get out of here. out of the big, busy, buzzing city. so i thought i'll sneak in a different post before i continue with my photo diaries, in case i'm boring you to death already with all my Penang posts! there are more to share and i can't wait. but i'll share my evening with Ken at Brussels Beer Cafe first instead, because it takes my mind off vacation. for now.
i did not enjoy the mussels much this time around, if you recall, i really had a blast on our last visit to Brussels. this time we ordered a pot of mussels cooked with onion, chili flakes, garlic, spices and flamed with Pernod. it didn't turn out how i expected it to be, there was a lack of spice, or chili flakes cos it was rather bland - or maybe it's just because i prefer the ones cooked with sundried tomatoes, it gives a citrus-y flavor to the mussels and i loved that (and the bacon was gooood). well, not this time, bummer.
BUT. what Ken had was awesome. this chicken roulade with mushrooms and onions, served with sautéed asparagus, Belgian stoemp and rosemary reduction. i had a mouthful and almost devoured the whole plate, but..i had my mussels to finish up. oh p.s the french fries are yummy, i'm not much of a fries eater but i made an exception for this one.
have you tried roulade? i'm on a lookout for more! x
