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 65 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.
