SquareMeal Review of
Belgo Centraal (bar)
Tintin & Hercule Poirot rank high on the list of famous Belgians, although beer buffs would probably add Brugs Wit, Floris Honey and Duchesse de Bourgogne to the list – not to mention Stella
Artois. Belgian brews seem to heavily outnumber the celebrated sons of Flanders, and this senior branch of Belgo has most of them on show. Putting in a rare appearance outside of the Low
Countries are Judas Blonde and Rodenbach Grand Cru, while biscuity Deus Brut des Flandres (referred to as ‘the Champagne of beers’) puts in an appearance at an eye-watering £32.95 for 750ml.
Wines – if you must – include Chablis at £25. Mussels served a dozen ways, waterzooi, beef carbonnade, boar sausages & stoemp, followed by waffles offer an authentic taste of Ghent for hungry
gents and ladies.
