The Croque Monsieur Challenge


Having had the opportunity to travel to Bruges recently the Croque Monsieur (/Madame) Challenge has had a rebirth. Let's get down to business:

Location: Bruges 7 April 2011
Rating: 5/10
Comments: Hmmm, no bechamel sauce, no wonderful after taste of good French cheese. The salad was 80's -esque and uninspiring. Its redeeming feature was the presentation of the chips. However, being famous for "frites" I was disappointed after the build up. Conclusion: this was a dressed up toasted sandwich at best. The search for the perfect Croque Monsieur experience to match that of Calais back in 2000/1 continues...
