If you’re at the Little Brussels Belgian Beer Cafe on a Thursday night you might be there for the live music or the large range of imported beers with fancy matching glassware, but if you’re like me, you are there for the delicious cheeseballs.
Something to start~
Cheeseballs crumbed and fried with tomato jam ($10.00) OMG! They are soooo good and perfectly matched with the sweet tomato chutney.
So delicious and gooey but I’m sad about only getting 5 on a plate.
Pork Rillette ($8.00) Toasted Turkish bread, pickled onions, cornichons. Ok confession time, I had no idea what a rillette was, just seeing ‘pork’ in the name was enough. It turns out rillette is like a terrine and this one had pistachios and peppercorns embedded through it. The rillette had a strong ‘meaty’ taste and it was accompanied with a really crunchy bread.
Black Angus Rump 300g Belgian frites, salad and beer jus ($28.00) The steak was really good and an extra bonus was that the chips that soaked up the sauce but still kept it’s crunch. My friend had to remind me that the sauce was beer jus but I couldn’t tell.
Roast Confit Pork Belly- Belgian stoemp, sauerkraut and beer jus ($28.00) I found the pork belly disappointing as it was more fatty and chewy than crispy. It sat in a rich stock sauce with vegetables but I preferred the steak.
I would love to come back and try the mussels!
