De Frietketel, Gent Belgium

Location: Papegaaistraat, 9000 Gent, Belgium

I couldn't find much info about De Freitketel in Gent, but I did find some photos of foods they had so we decided to check it out. This was the last place we ate before catching the train out of Gent, and it was pretty cheap and a ton of food.

They have a sign saying that the veggie things can be made vegan by using a different bread and sauce than they usually use, so you just have to ask. It was crazy busy when we got there, but our food still came out pretty fast. We started with the crispy hawaiian burger - pineapple, lettuce, onion, sauce. This patty had a meaty flavor, kind of like Boca burgers but much better. The flavors were very nice and it was a really good burger.

We also tried the Groenburger (green burger)- tartar, tomato, onion, lettuce. This patty was a veggie patty with corn, peas, carrots, and potato and was delicious! One of my favorite burgers we have had. Very tasty with lots of veggies.

We also tried the Veggie Bitterballen. We didn't know what we were going to get with this, bit they were like corn and other veggie fritters. Very tasty.

And finally the fries. They were good, and you got a ton of them! I will say overall I was disappointed with the fries in Belgium. They don't season them at all, at least at the places we had fries, and I like a little salt on my fries. They also don't come with any sauces, no ketchup or anything, you have to buy that extra. Not a big deal, but it is different from most places we have been. I mean the fries were alright, but I have had better elsewhere. And that was all over Belgium we just had so so fries.

Overall- De Frietketel was really tasty, very cheap, and a ton of food. If I lived here we would go often. Definitely check it out if you are in Gent.
