Marcela & I dropped by the Belgian Monk to visit my cousin Chunktronics. He recently started working there as a cook.
Before choosing what we would eat, the St. Bernadus Pater 6 beer with pear and apple notes called out to me. I’m no brewski expert, but I enjoyed it enough to order a second.
The self-proclaimed World Famous French Onion Soup was delicious. The soup broth was 🔥 but the broth the meatballs were swimming in was some next-level shit.
Like the soup, the meatballs (beef, pork & lamb) come in a hot crock. However, that meatball broth is a sirop de liege (apple & pear) & Belgian beer sauce, aka where have you been all my life?
Can someone place put these meatballs on a sub roll?
Not to be left out, the frites with samurai & garlic mayo sauces were excellent too, but those were more Marcela’s jam. The thickness of the cut of the fry used is perfect.
We enjoyed the Belgian Monk, and I’m not just saying that cause Fred works there. But, he’ll be the first to tell you I haven’t been a fan of everywhere he’s cooked.
