Have you ever tasted a Ghent mastel? This round cinnamon bun is cut in half, both sides are covered with butter and sugar and it is then ironed - yes, like a piece of clothing. This may sound weird, but it’s truly delicious. Mastels and a wide range of other Ghent specialities like neuzekes, mustard or uuflakke are available in some of the local shops. And if you combine these local delicacies with activities or traditions that are typical of the region, you will enjoy a city break that is truly and thoroughly Ghent.
