While the Belgian food at Frites is solid and reliable, especially the mussels and pork knuckles, it's their sizable beer selection that wins over most.

Our order of mussels in a creole broth (HK$195 per 500 grams) had a nice spicy kick to it - the onion, garlic and Cajun seasoning made for a long impression on the palate, even after the mussels themselves made it down the gullet.

To end the meal, we ordered the chocolate fondant which was slightly disappointing as the centre was not as melted and hot as we had wanted and we had to wait quite some time for the dish to even appear at our table.

This Belgian beer hall is everything you’d expect—cheerful, beer-centric and somewhat average on the food side.

Just one slice of bread is a little stingy though, non? Everyone knows practically the best part of a mussel pot is mopping up the excess juices so only one slice for a whole kilogram was a little disappointing.

The mussels are good with a Hoegaarden beer / Chilli and Lemongrass with Coconut Cream. The staff in Frites are well trained in matching special beers with each individual order.

The best mussels we’ve tasted this side of Brussels, deliciously hearty entrees and an excellent selection of Belgian beers, make this spot a staple for those in need of a little taste of Europe.

Elsewhere, the frites were good but unexceptional, though they win marks for being obviously fresh, piping hot and nicely-seasoned.

It was a little salty for my liking, I preferred the Provencale – at least you can dip the rye bread in the tomato sauce, the Mariniere was just too satly.

The mussels were deliciously plump and juicy, and the tasty sauce was great for dipping the bread into.

The sausage was good as in many sausages but the highlights must be the soup which we almost soaked cleaned with the bread provided. Slightly salty but savory enough to stimulate the urge to have more!

But the winner for the night was definitely the Frites House Mussels; diced tomato, garlic, onion, light cream and chives.

A surprisingly good meal, one that would have been even better if I had been a fan of Belgian beer…

The Schnutzel tasted nice either with ketchup and mayo, dejion mustard or simply without any sauces. I also like its crispy texture. Overall, the schnitzel was nice but wasn't particularly special.
