Mussel POT

It’s looks like a giant mussel and this place boasts some of the best mussels in the city. Coming in a range of tomato and cream based sauces. You can have them cooked fresh and eat them right away or take them home ready to be boiled up. Either, we suggest getting a loft of bread from the deli section first because you are going to want to soak up that delicious sauce.
