    CHRISSYG's Note:

    There is this cool little Belgian Bar in Philadelphia's Center City that serves like a million different beers and the best mussels I've ever had. Here's how to make them! 6 servings would be as an appetizer.

      I took a road trip to Philadelphia on my honeymoon, and we found Monk's by chance on a drizzly Sunday night. We ordered the Thai Curry Mussels which I haven't been able to stop thinking about since. This recipe is pretty much replicates Monk's. Amazingly done, Chrissy G, thank you!!!

      Love Monk's, and loved these mussels! They were awesome. Since I didn't have those yummy fries and bourbon mayo handy, I subbed some good bread and lurpak. I ate up nearly every drop of sauce.
