    For really 'GREAT' mussels, get some 'Fresh New Zealand Green Mussels' from Diana's and steamed them at home! So, plump, sweet and chewy, its amazing! Not cheap though! 12 for around $5.

          I loved my mussels at BeerBistro. I had the diablo. I tasted a friend's choice as well (shallots, garlic, cream and lemon) and they were equally tasty.

            I digress but .....wouldn't it be nice to have Cafe Brussells back for one last mussel extravaganza!

      I had great mussels in both Rodney's by Bay and Starfish. The one at the Fat Belgian is ok, but didn't taste as fresh as the other two places. BTW, the mussels at Rodney's are from PEI, if the origin matters to you.

        I like the Fat Belgian. Moules & Frites are awesmoe.

          I was served bad mussels once at the Fat Belgian. The worst is that they wouldn't even admit it or replace them. Haven't been back since.

          Tuesday evenings, the Banknote at Bathurst and King has a mussel special ... two pounds for $6.95. A great deal.

              OMG the sweet baby mussels at Starfish (Patrick imports them from Ireland) are so delicious, especially with his frites.

                Second Starfish! If available, Zee Grill's is also very good.
