The Globe Belgian GastroPub

12926 Main St. Garden Grove, CA 92840 | Garden Grove | 714-537-7471

Location Description:

Start with a Belgian draft beer poured into a curvy chalice, or try one of more than a dozen Trappist brews, artisan beer produced by a select few monasteries, largely in Belgium. If you’re keen on reliving your frat days and are capable of chugging a 70-ounce schooner, The Globe also offers a so-called Chimay Challenge; portraits of the brave souls who’ve accomplished the feat hang on a wall of fame. Whatever ale or lager you choose, the thing to start with here are the Hoppas, the Globe’s version of tapas. The rillettes are excellent, small terrines of pork and duck meat cooked into shreds and left to chill until the fat forms a waxy seal you scrape off the top before spreading the pink, nearly melting meat paste on slices of French bread as you would pate.
