The Belgo mini-chain (five restaurants in and around London) found fame with that Belgian favourite, moules-frites. The versions served at this cavernous venue aren’t London’s best, but there’s
an alluringly wide range. One-kilo pots of the mollusc can be ordered marinière, with Thai green curry sauce, or au poivre (green peppercorn sauce). Platters of mussels arrive topped with tomato
sauce & grilled mozzarella. Flemish influences continue with beef carbonnade, rotisserie chicken, haddock in Brugs Wit beer batter, and waffles with ice cream and chocolate sauce for pud.
The lengthy drinks menu pays homage to Belgian beer, showcasing all sorts: from draught Früli Strawberry to Vedett or Trappist Chimay Rouge. Shots of fruit-flavoured schnapps appeal to livelier
crowds, of which there are many on Friday and Saturday nights.
Belgo is Belgian; a moules, frites (and steak and burger and anything else the masses eat) restaurant, where you dine in nondescript but quirky rooms, served by burly waiters dressed as monks. The restaurant at Covent Garden is subterranean, where you dine on close tables in what look like converted tube tunnels. The room at Belgo Noord (the Camden one, and the first Belgo, est. 1992) is, as you may expect, a little more edgy, a modern twist on a Belgian eating hall.Funny food words from Medieval times are engraved into the walls, whimsical shit like ‘Donkeythistle’, ‘Gag’ and ‘Pissala’. Oh, and ‘Ironmaw’....
