Review on Belgo Noord
Synonymous with mussels, frites and Belgian beers, Belgo Noord Chalk Farm still lays claim to being the brand leader in the capital - although it offers much more than buckets of bivalves The Chalk Farm branch (Noord) is an atmospheric, cellar-like canteen fronted by waiters dressed up like Trappist monks; medieval fish names are engraved around the curved walls and the open kitchen is in full view.
Pride of place goes to the pots and platters of organic mussels (choose from half a dozen versions ranging from red Thai to Provençal), but the menu also promises a mixed bag of Belgian and European dishes ranging from pork and leek sausages with 'stoemp' (Belgian mash), De Koninck beer and onion jus to char-grilled sea bass with fennel salad and dill hollandaise. There are spit-roast chickens too, plus a choice of desserts including Brussels-style waffles with Belgian chocolate sauce.
Belgo is famed for its special deals and promotions (everything from 'beat the clock' to 'lobsterfest') and it's worth keeping your eyes peeled for the latest deals. Belgo Centraal is at 50 Earlham Street, Covent Garden, WC2 and the company also runs three Bierodrome bars on Upper Street, Islington N1, Clapham High Street, SW4 and Kingsway WC2.
