Celebrity chef Emmanuel Stroobant first opened Brussels Sprouts in December 2006, a casual, relaxing, and chic bistro bar serving the cuisine of Belgium. With an extensive menu of Belgian classic dishes, and over 180 different Belgian beers, Brussels Sprouts has grown in popularity over the last 9 years, expanding to 3 outlets across Singapore.

Ambience at Brussels Sprouts differs depending on location. The Robertson location offers a chill, relaxing vibe admist the nightlife, the Big Splash location is the most family friendly with views of the beach, while the Quayside Isle location has scenic views of the tranquil marina. I personally prefer the Quayside Isle outlet for its scenic views. Prevalent colours themes of black and yellow abound, with warm diffused lightings in all locations. Furniture ranges from the standard sit-down dinner sort, to the high bar benches, functional but not too comfortable for lingering meals.

Service at Brussels Sprouts is polite, efficient, but somewhat cold. Staff are quick to seat you and take orders, and are knowledgable enough to make recommendations, especially for selection of drinks from their extensive menu. Orders are also served quickly during peak periods, usually within 15 minutes. Staff are also quick at turning over empty / dirty tables, however, sauces are self-service. I think the service lacks the personal, friendly touches, the feel is rather hurried and mechanical in nature, with little engagement.

Food at Brussels Sprouts is largely Belgian cuisine, with a focus on seafood. The majority of dishes are directly inspired by dishes you'll commonly find in Belgium, which is heavily influenced by French, German, and Dutch cuisine. Generally, I find their seafood to be fresh, and I like the large portions it's served in, most dishes are suitable for sharing. Prices are slightly high, as befits fresh seafood and imported craft beers, budget about SGD $42 per person for a 2 course meal with drinks here.

Mussels steamed with onions and celery, and served with fries, is considered to be the national dish of Belgium. The Mussels Moules Vin Blanc (SGD $20) here features small but meaty mussels, in a clear sauce of onions, parsley, celery, leeks, white wine, and butter. Love how light and fragrant the sauce is, allowing the natural taste of the mussels to shine.

Clams steamed with ham and mushrooms is a dish derived from Spain. The Clams Palourdes Jambon-Champignon (SGD $20) here features small but meaty clams, in a reddish-brown sauce of air-dried ham, fresh button mushrooms, parsley, veal stock, and butter. Love the salty, savoury taste of the sauce, which is nicely balanced, and imparts a smoky, meaty aroma to the clams.

Croquettes are a classic Belgian side dish / appetizer, but rather than the potato filled varieties in other countries, croquettes in Belgium are stuffed with either cheese, or grey shrimp. The version of Croquettes Au Parmesan (SGD $12) here are an appetizer with crisp outer shells filled with parmesan cheese, breaded, then fried and served on a tangy tomato coulis with fresh garden salad. The result is croquettes with semi-large pastry shell air pockets, but a gooey, creamy, stringy cheese center.
