Going to the beach at the North Sea in fall/winter is one of my favorite things to do in Belgium. I love the miles of empty, clean beach. Yes, it's cold and the wind is blowing like mad, but then you get to run inside a restaurant and have a nice hot meal.
That is exactly what we did today. After walking around on the boardwalk, renting an electric car for the kids to drive around, we chose the brasserie Le Bord'Eau for lunch hoping it will be nice.
Their fish and potatoes stew is delicious and hot. I loved the presentation too. It comes to the table in the cast iron pot they cooked it in. It is steaming hot and smelling incredible.
It kinda looks like fish waterzooi, a Flanders specialty. This dish had three different kinds of fish, boiled potatoes and vegetables in a superb cream sauce.
Very pleased with my choice and will have it again next time I feel like bracing the elements at the beach, in winter.
