Le Grand Bi

After we walked around Brussels, we decided to have lunch at Le Grand Bi…. BIG mistake! Well, here goes…

We got in, the waiter guided us to our table, and kinda forgot us there! It took him around 15 minutes to come back with the drinks and another 15 minutes to bring in the appetizers!! Add to all that, the waiter was rude and sarcastic too! Grrrrrrrr

My friend ordered onion soup that she HATED! It was full of oil and flavorless! I think you can tell from the picture that it wasnt good! She could not take another sip :-S

I, on the other hand, had the tomato soup! Not bad but not good either! But at least it looked way better than the onion soup!

My sister ordered a side dish of shrimps that, according to her, was really really good! So *whew* at least one item passed the “Okay” test!

Afterwards, it was a wait long. Our waiter disappeared! I think the staff changed, and our food did not arrive to the point were we thought he did not inform the new shift about us! But at lastΒ the main courses arrived!

Well, almost all of us ordered mussels and fries! The staff (the other shift staff) were nicER! The food? Well, it wasnt all that! A bit on the dry side I must say!

And the waffle? Let me just say I took a bite and decided that I wanted to have another one somewhere else!

Our order came to around EUR15-20 each!

It was a waste of money and total waste of time!!
