Moules-frites.

What think?
>>
Mussels are delicious, fries are delicious

I don't see them complimenting each other though
>>
i think all seafood should be served with fries.

it contrasts with the moist and slimy fish.
>>
Seafood tends to be served with french fries very commonly so why not?
>>
>>7557701

Cheap, delicious, and easy on the kitchen so it never comes out messed up. You do need bread though for dat broth.
>>
>>7557701
fucking good
>>
Good shit.

Belgium's most outstanding contribution to Western civilization.

>I don't see them complimenting each other though

You can use the fries to soak up the juices from the moules. They also offset the moules' texture, giving the dish a nice crunch (if done right).
>>

>if done right

that is important as fuck. mf is amazing but only when done properly, cause if not it fucking sucks. i hope the dish will never become too popular cause then idk what americans would do with it.

Scrape it out with a fork. Or use your fingers.

>he thinks moules frites doesn't exist in america

Sorry anon, unless you have some unique specialty not sold outside of your village, we have everything you have and more.
>>
>>7557701
Absolutely delicious. One of my top 5 seafood dishes.

Belgian here, I love friet met mosselen. The 2 don't go together really, we just eat fries with everything
>>
>>7557701
Love it but I'd prefer grilled bread or a crusty baguette over fries. Better to sop those juices
>>
>>7558088
cmon...there has to be a genuine unique way to do it
>>
>>7558232
use a shell that still has a mussel in it
>>
>>7558250
mind-blown

cant wait for my next moules-frites to try it
>>
>>7558126
You have tartare with raw egg yolk? What about mett?
That's what I thought.

Who gives a shit you fucking homo?

The moules should be in a pot of their own and the fries should be hot and crispy - on the same plate is bollox
>>
>>7558867
true
>>
>>7558802
>You have tartare with raw egg yolk?
I can "literally" get in my car, drive for 20 minutes and get to a local restaurant that serves beef tartare with raw quail egg yoke.
>>
>>7558802
>You have tartare with raw egg yolk?

yep. I've had tartare made with raw egg yolk at no fewer than 5 fancy-pants restaurants.

>What about mett?
I don't think I've come across met in the States, but I also wouldn't want to. Raw pork is pleb-tier nasty.

what's it taste like? it's just cold?

just the thought of it totally disgusts me
>>
>>7557701
i really like moules frites, but you could replace the pommes frites with a lot of things, they're mainly just to have some variance in the food.
>>
>>7557701
Mussels should be in a wine sauce, imo.
>>
>>7560431
i used to think that but there's other good ways as well. the best ones i've tried were with chorizo&tomato sauce and cidersauce. some sort of thaistyle, coconutmilk/cream,cilantro and lime was really tasty too. had the last one in a restaurant about a year ago so i'm not 100% sure how it was made or what was in it.
>>
>>7560436
>chorizo&tomato

That sounds pretty good, actually.
>>
ITT salty and jealous europoors
>>
>>7560439
yeah, it is, it's my girlfriends favourite and i make it for her from time to time. it varies everytime since i never remember exactly how i made it but that's ok, a little variance is good imo
>>
>>7560441
>ITT salty and jealous europoors
'Europoors' have been eating mussels centuries before your continent was even discovered.

gz on replying to him, totally didn't prove his point or anything
>>
>>7557701
Delicious. My favorite version is moules epices and frites. There's a great bistro in my neighborhood that makes superb fries. Moules au Pernod is another favorite, but I prefer baguette with those.
>>
>>7560431
>not using beer
stay homo, homo
>>
>>7561800
omg america. wtf is wrong with you. beer? FUCKING BEER?
>>
>>7561929

Can't tell if serious.
>>
>>7561929
>spending a day at the beach with friends
>buying mussels when the fishermen come in with their catch
>cooking your mussels on a fire on the beach with your remaining cans of beer

Like I said: stay homo, homo.
