The Welsh Special, Lille

What to eat in Lille France

I have been to Lille several times now, it is a melting pot of different cuisines, restaurants, and tastes.  So today I decided to share with you a special dish in Lille that I think everyone should try at least once.  It is called The Welsh Special.

I tried The Welsh Special my second time in Lille.  I was with some French friends, and they brought me to a restaurant in the main square of Lille and told me I had to try this dish.  So, I did.  They warned me first though, that I better not have big dinner plans, because I would be full for the rest of the day.

The Welsh Special

This dish is a big plate that is half full of fries.  And as you should know the region of Nord is known for two foods; their mussels, and their fries.  So the fries themselves are already amazing.  There is usually also a small salad that is included as well.  Now for the main part of The Welsh Special.  A bowl that at the bottom has a piece of toast and then a few slices of ham, and then it is filled to the brim with cheese infused with beer.  And finally it is topped with an egg.  The Welsh Special LilleI think after I ate my Welsh Special was the most full I’ve ever been in my life!  It was SO incredibly delicious as well!  The fries with some cheese was so good that I couldn’t not finish it!  The cheese had so much flavor and was so warm and gooey!  And mixed with pieces of toast and jam too, it was so delicious especially on a chilly day in Lille.

I highly suggest everyone try a Welsh Special in Lille.  And believe me, they were right, you will be full for the rest of the day!  It was so worth it too!  So next time you are in Lille check out The Welsh Special, you’ll be happy you did!
