Heritage Belgian Beer Cafe, The Rocks

Was craving mussels and had heard about their 1/2 price mussels specials on Wednesday, so finally got to try it with my US friends when they were visiting.

We choose Mussels in Provençale style, served with a side of vegetables instead of chips.  Mussels came in a great big-ol' pot, filled to the rim together with tomatoes, capsicum and herbs.  Unfortunately, the mussels were small and not very meaty, and the soup broth was a little bland in flavour. 

Mussels Provençale ($31.90)
Cooked with tomatoes, capsicum, herbs & garlic.

My friend had the Chargrilled Kangaroo Loin, since Kangaroo meat is had to come-by in the States :)  Meat was a little game-y and tough, but to be expected of this kind of meat.  Broccolini was well cooked but the dished all in all was under seasoned, even with the berry sauce underneath.

Chargrilled Kangaroo Loin ($32.20)
Served with crispy chat potatoes, buttered broccolini and a Leffe Brune& juniper berry sauce.

The food here is pretty average given the price, and did not have any deep favours to their dishes.  The 1/2 price mussels every Wednesdays packs out the restaurant, but even then, the mussels were just 'meh' to me.  Unlikely to return unless its for drinks, since I must say that their beer selection is quite large!  Great place to hang out with friends and for large group settings.  But if you are looking for good, hearty meals....I would suggest to head elsewhere :)
