Belgium night out

Two days ago…I had a particular craving for mussels.  There’s a spot in Rittenhouse area called Monks Cafe.  I was introduced to this location by a friend of mine back in 2007: when I first moved from LA to Philly.  The food was delicious and I crave the experience! 

The event was created 28 hours before…..I invited 6 people.  At the event, 14 people showed up!!!

All of us ended ordering the whole menu of mussels….all eight kind! The fries came with the special monks sauce.  Furthermore, we ordered Spanish Flies which are spicy chicken wings!  They were delicious too.  Complemented well with the Belgium Ale, I ordered the Hebrew Reunion. 

Here are a few pics from last night….


Mussels everywhere!
