The original Belgo branch - there are now five in London - this Chalk Farm restaurant and bar has been going since '92. More than 20 years on and it's still specialising in moules, frites and an extensive selection of Belgian beers - at least 60 by the bottle at the last count. There's more to it than mussels, fries and booze, though.

The food menu includes rotisserie chickens, charcuterie boards, burgers, steaks and slow-cooked short ribs of beef served with creamed mash, glazed carrots and savoy cabbage. Express lunches are available, as well as 'beat the clock' menus, where diners pay the price at the time of the food order (6pm? £6).   

Most diners visit for the mussel dishes - it's what the chain is known for. Options range from kilo pots in a Provençale (tomato, herbs and garlic) or Thai (lemongrass, chilli, ginger, kaffir lime, coconut and coriander) broth, to those baked with pancetta, creamed spinach, garlic and gruyère cheese.
