As Canadian expat in Belgium, one thing I miss is the sea (and good lobster), so when I saw "Lobster Six Ways" on the menu at the House of Eliott in Ghent, I had to try it.
Far from the traditional 'crack it open and dig in' style lobster I was used to, this was still a wonderful meal. The varieties included a curry lobster and a more traditional herb and garlic sauce.
Even if lobster isn't your thing, this quirky restaurant is worth visiting. It's a bit like dining in your crazy Aunt Nelly's attic. The homage to Coco Chanel in the lady's room is worth the trip on its own.
Nothing better than properly cooked scallops. Start with this and end with lobster cooked in 6 different ways, I dare you to find a better menu! Beautiful inside, a shrine to Coco Channel. The owner is flamboyant man who is super nice and very patient with explaining the menu which is only in Dutch. This is the kind of place to take your fiance and propose to her, if she says no you still get a great meal out of it :))
