The Place Think of mussels and Brussels Sprouts is the first to come to my mind. There are a few outlets (Big Splash / Robertson Quay) but the latest outlet at Sentosa Cove is my favourite without a doubt. Quayside Isle is such a fantastic development by CDL that it is fast becoming a favourite dining spot for anyone. The ambience of the whole development is awesome, especially with the countless yachts, sea and W Hotel right beside it.
Updated as of 2017: Brussels Sprouts’ branch at Sentosa Cove has closed. Their remaining branch is at Robertson Quay (address below).
The Food Mussels is the national dish of Belgium and is definitely the must order dish here. We started with the Ailes De Poulet ($14) which is Belgium fried Chicken wings. The serving is very generous for the price, which is good for sharing. I like way the chicken is marinated, which kind of reminds me of the prawn paste chicken flavour.
For the Mussels & Fries ($25), we chose the starter size (350g) which is ideal for 2-3 people if you plan to try other dishe other than mussels. Our mussels is flavoured with the vin blanc base, which is a mixture of onion, parsley, butter, celery and white wine. The mussels are fresh and it is just so addictive to have it with the soup base.
The fries which comes with the mussels are unlimited in serving. I would recommend topping it up with the three dipping sauces ($2.50), which is a combination of hunter sauce, curry tomato and garlic saffron mayonnaise.
Another mains we tried is the Vis En Frites ($25), which is basically the Belgian version of fish and chips. It is quite a huge portion which I would recommend for sharing as well. The fish fresh, crispy and well battered, which makes it one of the best fish and chips I had recently. I was clearly wrong to have the impression that only the mussels are worth trying in Brussels Sprouts.
Rants If only there are a range of ciders in addition to the beers, the drinks menu will be perfect. It is almost impossible to walk in on weekends with the limited indoor seats and overwhelming crowd, which makes it a must to make reservations.
Will I return again? I like the mussels and the casual vibe of Brussels Sprouts, not to mention the great vibe of this outlet at Sentosa Cove. Definitely one of the best venues in town for quality dinner.
