The risotto in question is their king prawn and asparagus risotto cooked in champagne, brandy butter and lobster bisque. A very luxurious dish which although rich sounding, isn't at all. It being the first risotto where I can easily clear my plate and not have to surrender early on account of being full.
The real MVP of the meal however were the moules frites. Whilst I can deal with a few mussels in paella, I'm not a huge fan of them as they are a little too fishy for me... I would never order a pot of them by themselves. However that Friday I tried the Belgo ones and I was converted. The ones I tried were meaty rather than fishy and were consistently good - you didn't get bored after a set amount of time. The ones I tried were the chorizo ones which were infused with the lovely paprika oil and had a dusting / sprinkling of parsley. Straight away I knew what I'd be ordering on my next visit!
The drinks menu at Belgo is a daunting thing. With so many beers on offer, it's difficult to know where to start! The Tripel Karmeliet was a good choice and came in the most awesome glass with a fleur de lis at the base. Their wine was equally good too!
Have you ever been to Belgo?
