Reviewing food for the foreigners, without all the fluff.

Scallops with cheese and honey and irritating service

Posted by Pi on November 1, 2009

These were scallops, goat cheese, honey, and some type of salad with a sweet and sour vinaigrette (~13 euros), with everything except the salad served up steaming hot out on the cold terrace of BelgoBelge on St. Boniface.  Interesting flavors, but not really what I was expecting since the scallops must have been about the same dimensions of a two-euro coin, while loads of melted cheese oozed out from underneath.  For a small but rich snack, though, it satisfied me:


Unfortunately there were lots of service problems here, as we were served two plates of food that weren’t ours.  At least there were mussels:


Also one of the red wines was listed on the white wine menu, apparently.  Not being wine connoiseurs, we didn’t know this until what we ordered to go with the mussels came out:


But in the end, food is food, even when it’s good and not great, so of course it got eaten despite the very, very late l’addition.
