Mussels alone weren’t enough to lure me to Mossel & Gin Foodbar. The gin & tonics helped a lot, and as I read the menu I knew I was at the right place. Starters like oysters (two different sorts), fruits de mer, crab cakes, octopus and shrimp ‘bitterballen’ (a Dutch specialty you can’t miss out on) make me a happy girl.
The gin tonics make me even happier, there are loads of different ones to choose from, all evenly delicious. Then for the main course you can choose either mussels or lobster. Even though the lobster was extremely tempting I went for the classic mussels served with salad and fries. Delicious and a lot.
Combine all of this with a beautiful industrial interior, really friendly staff, and a good vibe and there can only be one conclusion: I will definitely be back.
