Reasons for trip

“Brasserie Strijdershuis”: was in a narrow pedestrianised street right opposite our hotel (Martin’s Brugge).

There were a couple of small tables and chairs at street level and menus in various languages on display, but, up a short flight of stairs, we found a covered terrace. Although it had been warm during the day, the evenings were still chilly, so we headed inside to what was an informal restaurant/bar. Hardier souls sat out under patio heaters.

There was an extensive “menu”: with soups, salads, meat and fish dishes, pastas etc. We found generally that eating out in Bruges wasn’t particularly cheap and so we both chose from a good value ‘Welcome Menu’ at €19 for three courses.

Our bottle of South African Sauvignon Blanc was equally well priced at €22.

Service was friendly and laid back and the waiter spoke good English. We were brought crispy nibbles, olives and two delicious looking and tasting rolls.

I plumped for one of my favourite starters, French onion soup, which arrived with a garlic bread toast. It was well seasoned and very tasty. Roy meanwhile chose a warm salad with bacon, green beans, potato cubes and croutons with a main of spicy wok fried chicken, rice and vegetables (which included a rather unusual crunchy white vegetable said to be like a carrot). I had tagliatelle pasta with pesto and a well-cooked salmon fillet. We were both pretty full but the waiter suggested having a break before embarking on the light, but tasty, orange panna cotta.

We also visited on another night when we sat on the terrace early evening and shared a bottle of wine having found that a bottle in a restaurant on the main plaza (Markt) was €8 more. Whilst the ‘people watching’ wasn’t as good, there was enough to keep us amused.
