  • Belgian Fried Chicken Mondays

    First Monday of the Month

    Our next BFC is Dec 2!
    And again this month Hopleaf’s kitchen has chosen to pair the BFC with Maredsous Brune 8!

    December’s version includes: Fried chicken thighs, sweet potato purée, spiced waffle, sautéed kale, compressed apples, pepper gravy and spicy pepitas. $18. Pair it with Maredsous Brune 8 for an extra $5.

    It’s the First Monday of each* month —Belgian Fried Chicken Night! You might not find fried chicken on many menus on Brussels, but you might wish that you did after tasting this! It’s not historically a staple of the Belgian culinary scene, but we thought we’d change that. The preparation changes from month to month.  (*any exceptions will be announced)

    Offered at dinnertime, which starts at 5.  But don’t wait until too late; these dishes are popular and tend to sell out early.
