Street food in its purest form is a snack you buy at a food booth and eat out of hand and on the go. It can be an exotic dish or a local classic. No, you don’t have to travel to a faraway Asian country, you can also find great street food vendors in Ghent.

Feeling peckish?

In Ghent, you can choose from a wide selection of savoury street foods ranging from a plate of fresh oysters or hot slice of pizza to authentic Tibetan dumplings.  

Or do you fancy something sweet?

Those with a sweet tooth can also tuck into an artisanal ice cream, an “ironed mastel” (pastry), some cuberdons (confection) or a cappuccino with homemade almond milk in the Ghent streets. Yummy!
