There’s a lot more to the Belgian Beer Café than great grain and even better chips. But let’s be honest, you would be remiss not to indulge in both at this laidback venue with three locations – Madinat Jumeirah, Grand Millennium and Dubai Festival City. Climb on a bar stool, let your eye wander around to the dark wood-panelled walls, the dim sidewalk café-style lighting, menus scrawled on chalkboards and deep comfortable booths and you might think you’re escaping for a tipple in Bruges. If you’re looking for a meal to warm your bones – from the air conditioning – be sure to try an overflowing bowl of mussels or hearty Flemish beef stew. Bon appétit!
