Starter Size of Ostendaise - Fish Stock, Lobster Bisque, Shrimp, Mushroom, $18.50
Mussels and beer is a wicked combination. Add to that free flow fries and a fantastic conversation about books, travel and coffee, and you have a recipe for a good time. I loved the Ostendaise that T had, which tasted like a lobster bisque (albeit watered down for the mussels) with complexity and strong crustacean notes. The mussels aren't exactly huge, but they're definitely plump and juicy!
Starter Size of Vin Blanc - White Wine, Butter, Celery, Onion, Parsley, $18.50
I had the Vin Blanc, the white wine concoction, which worked really well with the mussels too. The broth tasted quite strongly of wine if you drink it alone, but the mussels tasted perfect. I loved dunking the fries into the broth! Oh and I loved that they provided Japanese mayo with the fries. A beer feels necessary here (happy hour is till 8pm everyday). Since the fries are free flow with every order of mussels, even a starter portion is quite enough to fill you up. If you're feeling ravenous, however, or if you're just a big fan of mussels, the mains portion are available at $38.50.
Took this before dinner. Isn't the view lovely? Happy 2011!
