“Top frietkot in Gent”
Reviewed 13 December 2012

One of the best frietkoten in Gent, huge portions of excellent fries, nice atmosphere - not your typical snackbar, veggie friendly.

“Holy fries!”
Reviewed 19 September 2012 via mobile

Back in my vegan days this place would've been a dream come true! So many veggie options. We enjoyed a falafel burger and a hazelnut burger, as well as a large order of fries. The fries were enough to feed 4 people. We kept eating until we felt sick but only got about half way through the portion. If you're traveling through Ghent on a small budget eat here for sure. It's cheap, delicious, and it will fill you up big time! Our total came to 16 eU for 2 Jupilers, 2 dipping sauces, and the fries and sandwiches. Happy!

“Veggie burgers unlimited”
Reviewed 16 June 2012

Any type of veggie burger you want. We had the hazelnut and the felafel. Very tasty. Only order the small chips, they are huge. Obviously a local favorite.

“one of the best "frietkoten" in Gent!”
Reviewed 10 May 2012

Large portions of fries, very good "stoverijsaus" (beef and beer stew sauce), lots of snacks for vegetarians, this place could serve as a model for the perfect frietkot. The only downside? They're closed during the weekend. Seriously, what's up with that? Guess they make enough money during the week. Good for them. I've been coming here pretty regularly for 2 or 3 years now and never had bad fries.
