Bite Me, Brussels.

Reviewing food for the foreigners, without all the fluff.

Oysters and mermaids

Posted by Pi on March 25, 2009


The next time you take your flight from Brussels to New York City, stop by the Mermaid Inn to try the scrumptious seafood.  If you can stand the crowd and don’t mind waiting at the bar for a seat, the seasonal oysters with zingy ginger-lemon sauce really can hit the spot.  Not a fan of the raw?  Then the subtle seared scallops with garlic greens and cream sauce can cool you down.  The intensely flavored crabcakes with shredded radish are the real winner, though, by far.

Places like this show me that Brussels definitely could scale up its seafood fare.  Mussels can be great, but I like some delicious crab once in a while, too, even if it runs a little pricy.
