Moules frites / Mussels & fries -- Which restaurant has the best?

  • 9

So, I ordered moules frites at Le Rossignol Bistro about a week or so ago, and it was very good and a healthy portion. Mussels were in a rich tomato broth, and the frites were excellent, but of the Hickory Stick variety, which I don't prefer. In fact, that kind of ruined it for me, however great everything else was.

Where should I go for a great moules frites, with more typical fries, rather than the matchstick ones? I'm hoping the atmosphere & service will be up to snuff, too.

Please share!!!

  1. To be cheeky, I'd say the Moules Frites that Andre Soltner made me when I was in culinary school in NY...

    But I haven't come across a good version in TO unfortunately. I've had great frites, and great mussels, but never the both together unfortunately :(

    Maybe you can make a taxi ride out of it?

    1. I like them at Beer Bistro

      18 King St. E, Toronto, ON M5C 1C4, CA

      1. Merlot at 2994 Bloor St. West. Great bistro restaurant.

        1. It's a fennel and white wine prep so may not be to your taste, but I quite like the Moules et Frites at Rodney's By Bay.

            1. I like the Fat Belgian on John Street. They have several preperations of mussels and very good fries.
