Frites - Delicious Mussels & Fries


I used to pronounce this as "frights" but don't. It's "freet" with a silent s, learnt it from our French friend who highly recommended this place.

At the end of this tunnel, you'll find deliciousness.
Promising :)

We went there for the mussels and the fries served with mayo.
That's right.
Fries and mayo (not Miracle Whip. Not that there's anything wrong with miracle whip ^_*), crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, chunky fries with a small pot of slightly salty, tangy and creamy mayo.

I had half a kilo of Mariniere mussels, the mussels were perfectly cook, every little bite is a nice combination of fresh seafood sweetness, savory garlic, and fragrant white wine and herbs. Scoop the sauce with a spoon or mop it clean with a piece of bread...or two?

We also love the pot of Frites House Mussels, I literally couldn't stop myself from slurping the sauce of my friend's pot. Fresh and sweet from the onion and mussels, slighty tangy from the tomatoes, and creamy without being too rich. Yummy!
Half a kilo, easy. Each of us finished our pot clean...

...despite having polished off a bowl of beer sausages, hearty and savory with a touch of sweetness. The perfect small bites to share with a few friends.

In Germany we also call chips/fries 'pommes frites' from French. The foods look fantastic there!

That's exactly how mussels are done in France and I had the good fortune to enjoy them. I feel the price in HK is a bit steep. Try doing the mussels yourself...really easy..garlic, white wine, tomatoes, some herbs(herbes de provence if u have it, if not some basil, thyme will do). I have also done mussels with beer...yum! My dtr's fave is mussels with tomyum paste..very easy! Don't forget to add eggplant/ tofu/ tomatoes.
