Food Feast in HK: Frites Belgium on Tap

This post starts off my series on the various restaurants we dined in during our stay in HK. 

FRITES: Belgium on Tap is obviously an eatery that offers Belgian cuisine. Its main dishes are the Moules or Mussels. They are served in a bucket along with a piece of rye bread and fries. 



We ordered the house mussels which is cooked with tomato, onions, garlic, white cream and fresh chives. As well as the Marinere Mussels - it has white wine, celery, garlic and mixed herbs.


For Belgian Fries the potato cut is fatter than your average French fries. It is also crunchy on the outside yet quite tender inside. It always comes with a mayo dip which is yummy.


We also ordered the Pork Schnitzel - Fried golden brown parmesan crusted Pork Loin with Fries.


The Scallop and Crab Risotto


Pappardelle (Ribbon Shaped Pasta) with Shrimps and Mussels

For dessert - Belgian Waffles with cream and chocolate.


Dining in FRITES always bring back fondly pleasant memories for my family. 
My sister and I grew up eating Belgian fries on a daily basis during our elementary school lunches.

I've never had Belgian cuisine. But I love mussels and clams cooked in garlic and white wine.

Love mussels cooked in beer or wine. Photos make me hungry although my taste buds are gone these days.

Photo Cache: you should try it sometime well that is if there is a resto near you that offers Belgian cuisine.
