Food to warm your cockles in the Blue Mountains.
It was so cold this Saturday evening coming up to the Blue Mountains, a bright and sunny day in Sydney but the closer I got, by train and then a torturous bus ride, replacing trains, because of trackwork, the temperature just seemed to drop and drop.
So, some hearty Belgian food was welcome.
As I lived in Brussels for two years, back in the days, I was curious to see what they would have. Mussels of course. Some very good fries. Also potato croquettes. And an excellent selection of very reasonably priced Belgian beer.
I had mussels, which were tasty. I think it’s pretty hard to muck up mussels. Frans found his main, the vegetarian dish, very tasty, and I heard no complaints from Bella about her soup. The fries were really crisp and good. I’ve had better croquettes.
The dessert was impressive though, a chocolate-covered nougat with three different types of ice cream. Very tasty. It was busy enough and so the service was extremely charming and slightly erratic. If you’re craving Belgian food (or even if you’re not), this is a good option on for a meal in Leura!
