Double the fun from Belgium

PHUKET: On Sunday (July 21), the beer will be exceptionally cold, the waffles and chocolates exceptionally sweet, and the french fries will ditch the French connection, changing their name to friets and being served in their original style – the Belgian style.

Celebrations of Belgian National Day will be double the fun this year!

Not only will Belgians be raising a glass of beer from one of the European country’s 178 breweries in memory of their first King, Leopold I, who ascended to the throne on July 21, 1831. This year Belgian people will also celebrate the coronation of a new King, Philippe I, who will wear the crown for the first time on this very day.

Belgium’s embassy in Bangkok is organizing a special reception to mark the occasion. But of the 2,200 Belgians officially residing in Thailand, those who live in Phuket will be heading for the Brasserie in Phuket Town.

The country in question might be modest in size, but the kegs of free beer at the Brasserie definitely won’t be, and will go nicely with the fried chicken and friets that are also to be served, accompanied by traditional Belgian music.

The Brasserie is located at 18 Rassada Road, near Suriyadat Circle, Phuket Town (click here for map).
