Paris 2011 - Leon de Bruxelles

On our way to Pierre Herme we passed Leon de Bruxelles, which I had read about prior to getting to Paris. We decided we would give its mussels a try for lunch one of the days while we were in Paris.

Leon de Bruxelles is a semi-"fast food" chain that serves fresh and delicious mussels!




Each of us got a pot of the delicious mussels (different sauces and seasonings.) They were both very tasty. The mussels were cooked perfectly and the seasonings were wonderful. There were a lot of mussels in each pot, and toward the end of the meal John said he thought he had "mussel fatigues!" hahaha.


And of course there were frites and beers.


I believe it was on "Thanksgiving Day (American)," so we had mussels and frites for our "Thanksgiving in Paris!"

The moulles-frites is a real Belgian treat. It's nice you got to try it in Paris. Here's the photos of Debby and I trying it ourselves.
