is a belgian fries, crepes, and mussels joint in the Mission. They also have another location in Hayes Valley. It’s a casual place on Valencia. You order your food, get a number, and they bring it out to you. They have beers and booze and other food too.
A grimbergen. We all agreed that this beer was super tasty. It’s belgian, and I believe this was a blonde, but as we can all see, it’s quite brown. And yummy.
They provide carafes of water so you can hydrate yourself. A enjoyed a hoegaarden while I took advantage of a passion fruit soju mixed drink. Fruity and strong. Yeeha!
The frites! Extremely thick cut, which surprised me. Hot and crispy. With the large, you get your choice of two dips. Amongst us, we picked thai chili ketchup, white truffle artichoke ketchup, parmesan peppercorn ranch, and spicy yogurt peanut. Here’s the low down… thai chili – ok and spicy, artichoke – amazing, ranch – eh, it’s ranch, and the peanut – thick and peanutty. I think we all agreed that theh artichoke was the best of the bunch. These freis were great. And not greasy either. I was picking the crumbs…
A got the mussels, the thai kind. She loved it. And the leftover broth was enjoyed by all. She even got extra bread to sop it all up.
The rest of us got sandwiches. The sisley – roasted pear, cheddar, gorgonzola, chipotle remoulade, and avocado on focaccia.
The rest of us got sandwiches. The basquiat – grilled chicken, pesto mayo, caramelized onions, swiss, avocado on focaccia.
The velasquez – prosciutto, mozzarella, roasted pineapple, roasted pepper mayo on focaccia. All sandwiches were served with a spring mix salad. Good food with good friends. Not exactly cheap, but worth it! I probably drank too much… ha! Ok, not here, but definitely at Gestalt where we spent the rest of the night…
