Review: Brussels Beer Cafe


Actually, I was a bit reluctant to write about Brussels Beer Cafe as I find them more of a watering hole than a place that serves good food. Not to say their food is not up to mark but I guess it's really depends on what you order plus it's really individual's opinion. However, we do loved the wide range of beer selections they have here, that one Brussels Beer Cafe really wins hands down!

Capt'n Hook had a Leffe Brune Draught (1 pint RM26.00) which is a dark beer, incredibily smooth!

I have a rather fruity flavoured Hoegaarden White Draught (half pint RM14.00).

Whilst waiting for our friend to arrive, we have an order of "hard not to resist" Brussel's Style Roast Pork (RM18.80). The portion is a tad stingy and served with stoemp. Tastewise it was all right with the crispy skin but I feel our Chinese style siew yuk rocked me more especially those homemade ones :p

Later on my friend and I have this Brussels Mushroom Soup (RM8.80) which was great! It's creamy but not heavy, packed with mushroom bits. Lovely indeed.

Capt'n Hook had Onion Soup RM9.80 which is mediocre only.

My boiboi and I shared a Sausage Platter (RM28.80). Now these sausages were just all right.

Capt'n Hook's Lamb Shank & Stoemp (RM38.80) was a total disaster! The meat was tough even though the waitress said they have cooked it for many hours. They were not fork tender. The lamb still have gamey taste, something which Capt'n Hook detest. My friend's version of chicken doesn't look nor taste exciting as well.

Overall, I think we'd better stick with the beer.

Taufulou said...

internet usage exceeds account, so painfully slow until end of month. can't even view all the photos u have. boi2 allowed in a drinking place?

Flower said...

Didnt know that the price of imported beer is so expensive there in Msia. I've heard that here in Australia beer is cheaper than water. Not too sure lah since I dont drink. But its adat turun temurun here when u'r invited to a bbq to bring a six-pack or BYO drink and drink only your own drink at the bbq unless offer by others. You know what, sometimes the host didnt even provide a drink.

I love love LOVE hoegaarden wit. It's my favourite beer. Did they serve it plain or with a slice of lemon? I liek it plain but sometimes when it is hot it is also lekker to bottom up then suck on a slice of lemon! It's 11.12 pm here now you make me want one hahahaha let me see if we have some in the fridge :P
Brown Leffe is yummy too. I am not as particular with my dark beer compare to white.
Maybe you're right to stick to good beer!

This remind me one of the restaurant + Pub in D'sara behind Victoria Station. SOrry that i cant recall the name but it is a few doors away from Pork Rib and under the same mgnt too. The food, beer & wine are good.

BTW, I run a Melaka Hainanese food restaurant, do feel free to dropby to try ya.

Log on to for details.
