Taking 120yrs to get from Belgium to here, this ancient Flemish mussel spot comes to us in fast-cas form, boasting 10 variations ranging from classic Provençal (basil & black olives) & Ardennaise (smoked bacon & 'shrooms), to oddballs like hot madras curry, all washed down with Belgian crafts including their own cloudy homebrew, and the 8.5% golden ale Duvel, meaning "devil" in Dutch, where the entire population is Amsterdam'd.
