Waffles and fries aside, soup is another popular dish in Belgium and you can find eateries that specialise in soup like Soup’R. The shop has four vegetarian options and the menu changes weekly. This was my everyday lunch spot when I was in Ghent. The place is packed between 12 p.m. and 1.30 p.m. with office goers and students, after which the crowd trickles down.There is a spot near a window, where you can rest your back and stretch. Since this spot overlooks the shopping district, it is a great place to observe natives and tourists. But then again, the problem is you can hardly combine observing and eating when it is crowded right? Nevertheless, drop by during non-peak hours and enjoy the view.
