BTM = “BACK TO MUSSELS” Inspired by chef and restaurateur Olivier’s experience in being the first to expand and popularise Belgium’s ‘mussels and fries’ restaurant concept throughout France, BTM Mussels & Bar relives that delicious chapter of his culinary story in Singapore, and celebrates the flavourful gem of the sea, showcasing its natural sweetness by preparing them in a variety of styles and flavours popular throughout Europe. In addition to Mussels & Fries, BTM Mussels & Bar serves a wide selection of comfort food from France and the Benelux region of Europe (i.e. Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg), including a variety of small plates, tartes flambées and charcuterie and cheese boards, which are best enjoyed with ice cold drinks and ideal for sharing!

The 1-for-1 deal applies to their 500g moules-frites which comes in 7 different sauces, and guuuuys I have to say this is SO WORTH IT. The portion’s massive. Each pot can easily feed 2 if you’re having other starters or drinks to go with. Though the mussels are smaller than the usual Australian ones, in exchange for size what we get instead are these beautiful orangey-yellow French Bouchot mussels that are bursting with flavour. Absolutely delicious. The Thailandaises here comes with a sauce of chilli, kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass, white wine and coconut, and was our favourite of the night. I would’ve liked the spices to come across more aggressively (perhaps with some galangal and a squeeze of lime?) and for them to hold back on the salt a little, but as it is this was really easy to eat and lovely to dunk the fries in.

I really like this new restaurant along Duxton, serving very good seasonal Bouchot mussels from France and across Continental Europe.
🔸
Of the five flavours I tasted that evening, my favourite is this Thai-style flavour that came with strong aroma of kaffir lime leaf and lemongrass, with mild heat from chilli, mixed with white wine and plenty of aromatic coconut milk. Very rounded, full flavour but still light enough to savour the natural sweetness of mussels.
🔸
Besides the Curry Mussels which I posted on 13 Feb, I've also tried these flavours, ranked in my order of preference:
* Ardennaise, which was prepared with Mushrooms, Fresh Cream, White Wine, Butter, Parsley, Onion and Bacon. A little savoury, a little smoky;
* French Marinières, a classic with White Wine, Butter, Parsley and Onion;
* Au Roquefort, that boasts the strong, savoury flavour of ‘the King of Blue Cheese’.

But whatever you choose to call it won’t change the fact that it’s utterly delicious. The rendition sees black truffle paste, comté, and serrano ham snuggled between 2 slices of generously buttered, well-toasted bread. Just imagine your fave ham & cheese sarnies tszujed up in a fancy-ass, but extremely elegant, black tie suit: this is it. I like how liberal they were with the butter so you get that really moist, browned butter kinda caramelised notes on the toast. Parfait 👌🏻

Last evening I visited this new restaurant along Duxton, which is serving up good mussels at very affordable prices. These aren't the usual Australian mussels that we are so used to having, these are really good seasonal Bouchot mussels from France and across Continental Europe.
🔸
BTM Mussels is inspired by owner Olivier Bendel’s restaurants at the Léon de Bruxelles group in France, where he has developed 250 recipes for mussels. At Duxton, only seven of the most popular flavours are available at one time. But they're planning to rotate the flavours, so progressively they'll be serving more of the 250 recipes they've developed.
🔸
One of the seven flavours available at the moment is Red Curry. While it has some cream in it, this flavour also included white wine and butter in its mix, and some parsley and onions. It was served with crisp golden French fries, which will also come with any mussels ordered here.
🔸
But there were some other flavours that I like more than this curry mussels. I'll share it with you next time, or you can DM me if you're going soon, and I'll tell you what to order.

Get your hands dirty and your bellies filled at this spot on Duxton Hill. You're here for the small but incredibly sweet French Bouchot Mussels ($36 for 500 grams). Have them done Marinieres-style — white wine with butter, parsley and onion. Otherwise, go for the Thailandaises, a satisfyingly spicy rendition with chilli, Kaffir lime leaf, lemongrass, white wine and coconut milk.

There are a few variations to try, but if you're starting out, do try the classic version of white wine, fresh cream, bacon and mushrooms. ⁠
At the end of the meal, dump the fries in to soak up the sauce, and it's another dish!⁠
