I looooooove fish & chips.
So much even that I’m in no way able to pick another dish off a menu when there’s fish & chips to be a had.
When I was in Dublin for a week, I ordered fish & chips at no less than three restaurants (boy, do they know how to make ’em). And when my friends and I were at Copenhagen Street Food, a food market near Copenhagen‘s “hippie town” Christiana, I chose fish & chips over the many other awesome, more exotic food options.
It’s not like I don’t want to order any of the other dishes, because I love trying new food.
I just can’t help it.
I see fish & chips and I got to have it.
Eating Fish & Chips at Bia Mara in Brussels
You can probably guess what happened next already, but…
When I discovered there was a restaurant in Brussels that focused on fish & chips entirely, there was no doubt in my mind that I had to eat there. So I convinced my then-boyfriend (who didn’t really need that much convincing to be honest) to go and together we entered the fish & chips heaven that is called Bia Mara.
And you guys, I absolutely loved it.
You can even pick your own fish from the menu on the wall!
And what’s even better… Bia Mara focuses on sustainability! So the menu changes every day, depending on the moment you go eat there and which fish are in season then. We each decided upon a different fish of the day, and both of them were super yummy! The supplementary sauces tasted great as well.
There’s room for some small improvements, though. Since there’s not a lot of space, it gets super crowded. So I wouldn’t suggest going here if you want to enjoy a quiet, relaxing evening. And I personally wasn’t too impressed with the white wine either.
But then again, the super tasty fish & chips more than make up for that.
All in all, I’d say the following is my message to you today:
If you ever find yourself in Brussels, go eat a platter of fish & chips at Bia Mara.
I swear you won’t regret it.
Do you love fish & chips? Any suggestions for my next fish & chips restaurant?
