Lobster lover? For a taste of your favourite crustacean treat, look no further than Belgian beer and food emporium Belgo’s annual Lobsterfest this summer
For the 11th year in a row, Belgo is serving up lobsters to the masses with its Lobsterfest. This year, the restaurant is offering four specially crafted lobster dishes, which pair perfectly with bespoke Belgo beer and schnapps cocktails.
Choose from the delicious lobster linguine; a bed of pasta served with asparagus, fresh tomato, with Champagne and brandy sauce, or try the whole dressed lobster; served hot with béarnaise sauce, spinach and double cooked frites. Want to get the best of both land and sea?
Try the Surf n’ turf burger; a delectable combo of garlic baked lobster, classic British beef burger, served with frites and homemade coleslaw. Or savour the lobster waterzooi; an interpretation of the classic Belgian stew, filled with lobster, mussels, saffron, white wine, tomatoes, vegetables and served with bread for dipping.
No matter which dish you choose, one of the cocktails is sure to impress. Try the Slagarita, a margarita mixed with an entire bottle of tasty Slag Pils, or the Jimi Hendrik with passion fruit schnapps, Straffe Hendrik and vodka. If you’re a mojito lover, try the Fruli Mojito for a new take, or if you want something different try the Belgian Garden with Watermelon schnapps, gin and grapefruit.
Lobsterfest ends Friday 28 August. Belgo has branches in Covent Garden, Soho, Camden, Holborn and Bromley. Click here to book
