I recommend going to the Gent Christmas market hungry. The street food diversity is fabulous.
This booth selling pumpkin soup is right by the church, on the left hand side. I am not a fan of pumpkin soup but I am always willing to try variations of it hoping I can find one that I like. THIS WAS IT! I loved every single sip. Cheese and croutons are offered too. In the cold weather this soup is perfect.
The presentation might not be much but the content is exquisite.
