I’ve been to Belgo in my first year of University, and I remembered it to be pretty good. This time, after 3 years, I’m back, with A, QJ and D. We ordered from the lunch menu, which was quite restrictive, but was enough to capture the flavor of Belgo.
We had a squid salad to start with, which was very appetizing. A good start.
For mains I had spit roasted chicken with a chili and ginger sauce, served with fries. The chicken came rather dry, but the chili sauce was good, despite the ginger, which I usually dislike.
A and D had the mussels with fries. When I think of Belgo I think of mussels. I’ve had amazing mussels in Nice, and I remembered the mussels at Belgo to be very good. A and D enjoyed their dishes, but I remembered it to be better.
QJ had the salmon fillet, which was quite thin and dry.
Overall, I thought the food to be far from what I remembered it to be. Maybe my palette has vastly improved and evolved since my first year in University, so I was rather disappointed by this meal.
