Respond to Review of De Frietketel
Review: I like this place very very much. First and foremost, though the menu is entirely Dutch, they were one of the few places in Ghent that clearly identified all of their vegan options. You can actually find vegetarian "frites" places all over the city, and it is easy to find veggie burgers, but very few of these are vegan, and it iis only this restaurant that clearly identifies these with a star on the menu, which made purchases easier. I also loved that for all the vegan burgers (which were good, though hardly the "best" ever as a previous reviewer said - all veggie burgers in Belgium are commercially frozen burgers sold en masse, and tasty, though hardly "amazing") they come with special vegan tartare sauce (delicious) and on turkish pide bread. Yum! The fries were very good, though not the best I had in Belgium, and for god's sake, order the small. The portions are incredibly generous. A small here is the equivalent of an extra large elsewhere. Very reasonable pricing for what you get, which explains why there is often a line. I would definitely run back here. Get the Hawaii Burger, which, as you'd imagine, comes with grilled pineapple.
