Respond to Review of Komkommertijd
Review: There are three totally vegan places in Gent and at 12.50 euros for an 'all you can eat' buffet it is not surprising that this place is very popular, even on a cold weekday in January. Fairly easy to find, just a few minutes walk from the cathedral, this place is attractive in design with friendly, english speaking staff. There is no menu you simply find a table, take a plate and choose what you want from the large selection of hot and cold buffet items, a soup and a dessert. The soup (I'm not sure what it was as nothing is listed in english) was delicious and I was looking forward to enjoying the rest of the food. However, the main courses were very basic vegan 'cook in bulk' stuff, a curry, chilli, cauliflower cheese etc. I hate running a place like this down but none of it tasted that good. I normally love curry and chilli but this stuff just had an odd taste, not even sure what it was but just tasted bland. The cauliflower was practically raw, there's nothing worse than overcooked cauli but you can go too far the other way. The cold salads were fine but on a damp/cold day I wanted hot food. Luckily the walnut cake for dessert was great. Overall, fine if you want 'cheap and cheerful' but there are better placesd in Gent to eat vegan and not really for a lot more money.
