Chicken Waterzoois in Ramekins

Belgian Fries

Roasted Beef Marinated in beer with crispy potato tacos – each bite was an explosion of flavor. The meat was tender, the flavor notes merged well and it’s one of the best pairings with Belgian beer.

Cherry Tomatoes stuffed with Shrimp Salad – every crunchy bite was a mouthful of different flavors. The tomatoes acidity was perfectly paired with the creamy shrimp salad

Haricot Beans with Hazelnut and Orange 

Belgian-style Burger with Endive Slaw – another favorite, can be eaten in a bite or two which either way satiates your carb craving after a sip of Belgian beer
