Oak – Gent

Oak 290

It might be intentional but nothing about this restaurant gives away in advance that they own a michelin star. The entrance is quite simple and the inside dining area is small (often totally booked) and unpretentious. The laid back staff sets a relaxing mood with a well oriented and friendly service leaving you at ease and ready to concentrate on what really matters: The food.

And what a culinary experience! In my visit, me and my husband had the 6 dishes menu available for lunch and the suggested wine glasses to match each dish since at the moment they didn’t have a wine pairing menu, and the suggested wines couldn’t be more accurate and delightful. The amuse bouches were scrumptious and creative, and the following dishes had a clever and modern combination of flavours, with thought out but also unexpected textures and aromas, always perfectly executed.

To finish the meal we decided to have an Irish Coffee (already a tradition) and it was one of the most perfect Irish coffees I’ve ever had! No sugar added, intense flavour and perfect balance. Can’t leave out the outstanding freshly baked little madeleines that were served with our coffee.

An absolute delightful closure. Oak can’t be missed by those who enjoy fresh ingredients, simple and yet refined flavours in a relaxing and informal setting.

Allegro Moderato Gent

Allegro Moderato

Me and my husband found out about Allegro in one of these Saturdays when we were looking for a place to have  lunch and everything was already booked. We had been browsing Trip Advisor and Foursquare and calling places for about 15 min without any success until he saw this restaurant.

After a call, to our estrangement they had a table for us and so we went unsure of what we would find.

Kin Khao – Thai Eatery

Kin Khao – Thai Eatery

My love story with the Thai cuisine started not so long ago, but after trying my first green curry I fell hard for the strong aromatic components that Thai dishes compiles, and the spicy edge that is so characteristic of this cuisine  converted me into a spicy aficionado. 

So ever since I’ve been looking high and low to find a place that mimics the complexity and yet simplicity of the Thai food, and that gives the full experience in the dishes from the texture to the layer of flavours, smell and taste.

So whenever I’d eat at a Thai place it would feel like the food was a shadow of what real Thai cuisine is and what I cooking home was still better than what I was tasting eating out but this story totally changed when I paid a visit to the fairly new Kin Khao – Thai Eatery in Gent.

Prince : Food Sharing Concept

Prince Food Sharing

Finding a place to eat on a Sunday evening in Gent without having it booked in advance can be a very difficult task (Belgians are usually ahead planners). So not long ago, on a Sunday I was having a beer with my husband at Brouwbar that is also located in the heart of Gent at Oudburg street we decided to give Prince a try since it was just meters away from where we were sitting and had tables available.
