As the name states, Beer Bistro is a place where they incorporate beer in the dishes. This place has a huge selection of beer, with my close to none knowledge in beer, the beer list was just a jumble of words to me.
Fruli Strawberry (Belgium; 4.1% alc.)
The beer was very fruity, though I was not able to taste the strawberry, I thought it was still pretty good.
Salmon Belly Cakes $12.95
Belgian Frites $6
Hog Wild Pizza $16.50
The topping for this pizza included "berkshire pulled pork, smoked sausage, beer-cured bacon, oregano, mozzarella, garlic confit." This was a decent pizza, very barbecue-y tasting. I somehow tasted pineapple like things when it contained no citrus-y ingredients. Overall, it was good but average tasting to me.
Belgian White Mussel Bowl $18.50
The mussel bowl was my favorite of the night. I had previously tried the mussel bowl at Starfish Oyster Bed & Grill and I like the one at Beer Bistro much better as the one at Starfish was very sandy as I kept on eating sand in the mussel and was just not able to enjoy the dish while spitting out sand. The flavour was Belgian White was just right for my taste bud, not too overwhelming to cover the natural sweetness of the mussels. Two complaint, the mussels was VERY SMALL and slightly overcooked that the texture of the mussels became a little chewy/rubbery.
The service was very nice and the server was attentive and kept out water glass full. Though near the end when we all finished and just wanted to chat, it seem like the server was rushing us to go when they were not exactly fully packed. The bill was given to us without us asking for it. Overall, it was a decent/okay meal. Will I go back? Probably not.
