HOLY MOLY

Hooray! After Mercado Antwerp, Ghent has its own foodie heaven, and yes you can take this quite literally. Set in a 16th century chapel in the heart of #9000, the Holy Food Market definitely is an amazing addition to our beautiful city. When you enter, you feel the great vibe right away. With its unique location this food market undoubtedly captures the hearts of the public. Visitors can enjoy honest, tasty street food from all over the world, accompanied by some home made cocktails or a glass of champagne.

The Holy Food Market places sixteen eateries all run by different entrepreneurs having their own food concept. You’ll find everything from trendy Frank & Brut (hotdogs with champagne), healthy Avo (all dishes made with avocado) to the more conventional Yalla Yalla (Lebanese food) and Bubba (handmate croquettes). Food lovers can wander from stand to stand, order whatever they want and find a seat in the centre of the former chapel while enjoying all kinds of smells and sounds.

Since I’m very curious and always open to try new things, we chose some different dishes from several food stands. To start we had Portuguese tapas from Taberna Lisboa, pretty good but as a real tapas addict I could say I’ve had better. After we tried the super tasty arte della pizza di Napoli offered by Lovine’s. Yum! My boyfriend Pieter is a real meat junkie so we sure had to visit Karnivoor. Bagels with all sorts of meats, grilled, baked or raw, even a vegetarian wouldn’t pass by without salivating. At last we felt in love with the Lebanese kitchen of Yalla Yalla. Definitely a must try.

During our culinary trip we had a chat with the food manager, Ladislas Leys, who also runs his own food stand Sea Me (fruits de mer and wine bar).

Great ambience and tasty food in this very exclusive setting, one more motive to visit Ghent. Since we’ve only got to try half of the eateries, we just have to go back pretty soon to try some more.
