This got the award of best frituur in flanders. It is a weekly stopbfor our family and it is definitely worth it. Lot of homemade stuff. Also veggie and vegan. Hope they can keep up the quality.

Hunted this place out as fries were on the Belgian bucket list and this looked like a good shout. Well rewarded by friendly staff, superb fries and great burgers. As a warning the fries are huuuge so don't order too much!

Fries were crunchy from the first to the last one. Sauces were tastier than in other similar places here in Gent. Prices a bit over the average, though.
