One of four Belgos in London - there are others in Bromley and Chalk Farm, as well as one nearby on Earlham Street - this Kingsway branch brings a similarly popular combination of moules, frites and Belgian beer. They're served in a venue that was once a bank, its safe now the Belgo beer cellar.
The 52 Belgian beers by the bottle range from the well-known and recognisable (Stella Artois, Vedett, Duvel) to less oft-seen options such as Pauwel Kwak, Satan Red, Mongozo Coconut and Delirium Nocturnum. Make sure you keep an eye on the ABV - in true Belgian style, some are pretty potent.
The mussels do brisk business here. They're served in kilo pots in a variety of broths (traditionelle, classic, Thai) as platters or in dishes such as the Espangole - cooked with roast tomato, chorizo, smoked paprika and potatoes. Outside of the moules there are burgers, steaks, rotisserie chicken dishes and the Belgo take on classic fish and chips.
Belgo people are a bunch of amazing individuals who love the Belgo brand. Everyone is tasked with leaving each customer with a lasting memory of their experience that will transform guests into lifelong friends who rave about the great times that they have at Belgo.
