What type of bread would go good with mussels in a curry cream sauce?

I'm planning on making a meal for a few friends tomorrow including mussels in a curry cream sauce. I was wondering if anyone knew a good bread that would go good with it? Possibly something for those with a sensitive mouth to get rid of the curry taste or just something to compliment the flavours.

The mussels sound great! A French baguette would be perfect with them.

When I see curry, I think flat breads.

Chapatis for sure.

I suspect naan would not cool much down (it tends to be drenched with ghee) but it would go really yummily too.

My thoughts exactly. Ciabatta is great at soaking up juices because the soft inside acts like a sponge while the hearty crust keeps it from falling apart.
