I died and went to foodie heaven in Ghent, Belgium!
We stumbled upon the newly opened Holy Food Market, and it was our absolute favorite place in town.
The Holy Food Market is a food hall inside an old church. It was SO cool and the food was super delicious! We ate here two days in a row! We did our best to sample lots of different foods. I think we did a really good job. Pizza, hot dogs, nachos, chicken salad, wraps, and ice cream! Too much delicious food!
This is the view when you walk inside the market.
SO pretty with all the windows!
I loved this fun colorful fish at this food vendor.
Such a fun reminder to clear away your trays!
We started our food adventure at Iovine’s.
It is Italian – my favorite!
We started with the Focaccia.
24-month dry-cured parma ham, Vesuvian small tomatoes with parmesan and EVOO.
It was served on top of pizza dough.
SOOOO good! I wanted to eat the whole thing, but I had to pace myself.
We shared the Burratissma Pizza.
San Marzano tomatoes, Vesuvian small tomatoes, basil, arugula and Burrata.
Another super popular dish at the market was the Bruschetta – TONS of people were eating it.
Next up was Karnivoor.
We started with the Pulled Pork Nachos.
They were some of the best nachos EVER!
The salsa was ridiculous! We were really surprised at how much we enjoyed this!
We also tried the Grilled Chicken Salad from Avo – Absolutely Avocado.
It had avocado, tomatoes, feta and some of the best grilled chicken.
We loved the name of this food vendor – HOS-T Heavenly Food!
This is the Holy Wrap.
Smoked Salmon – part of the Heavenly Lunch special.
This is a pulled pork and maple Hotsie.
They also offer fun drinks – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
One of our favorite places as Frank & Brut.
They sell hotdogs and champagne!
They actually refer to the hotdogs as Sinner Dogs. LOL!
We tried the Gluttony – frankfurter, guacamole, sour cream, jalapeño mayonnaise and POPCORN.
Next was Pride Sinner Dog.
Frankfurter, Flemish beef stew, thin fries and curry mayonnaise.
They offer one other hotdog – the Envy. It was topped with sauerkraut, bacon, onions and mustard.
We also ordered some Sweet Potato Fries.
They were really popular on Instagram.
We know why – they were seriously delicious!
Finally we hit up the Magnum Pleasure Store.
We couldn’t resist the bubble waffle cones!
They stuffed a whole Magnum Ice Cream bar in the middle and topped it with whipped cream and sprinkles.
They also have make your own Magnum bars.
They take a naked Magnum bar and you get to pick the what it is dipped in and 3 toppings.
SO fun and they tasted GREAT!!!!
When you see this inside the building, you know you are in the right place!
This is the image that is in the front stained glass window of the market.
Obviously they are sponsored in some way be Lipton Tea. ???
