Belgos is renowned across London for one thing - its delectable mussels and chips. And as is usually the case with places that specialise in one thing - they do them wonderfully. I love recommending this place to friends who are looking for somewhere lively to spend a birthday or another celebration. The basement restaurant is filled with long canteen style tables and the atmosphere can be raucous on evenings at the weekend (helped by the large selection of beer and the infamous 'mixed sticks' - a line of shots in a long wooden pole). Mussels come in a variety of stocks and are served in the large black pans that they were cooked in. And don't forget to order the golden and crispy fries - you'll need something to mop up all of that lovely mussel liquor with!
