Mr. Krock, Ghent (BE)

UPDATE (2013): Mr. Krock has closed as a restaurant and re-opened as a takeaway, with the same cook and the same delicious dishes. More info on their Facebook page.

The first restaurant I wanted to feature here is one of my absolute favourites: Mr. Krock.

It is a small Thai restaurant that looks a bit run down and inconspicuous on the outside, but serves the most amazing and authentic Thai food, with a perfect balance of flavours and textures.

The restaurant is called after the mortar and pestle the chef uses to grind the herbs and spices to make his curry pastes, and you can actually hear him use it while you're sitting there waiting for your food to arrive.

In all honesty, don't go when you're in a hurry. Because everything is cooked from fresh and there is only one chef in the (open) kitchen, it often takes a while before you get your food, but it's worth every single minute.

The staff are incredibly and genuinely friendly, the menus have English translations, there are plenty of vegetarian options, and the dishes are reasonably priced.

The restaurant is located at walking distance (about 10 minutes) from the main railway station (Gent-Sint-Pieters).

Main dishes go from +- 12 to 18€, and they're lavish. House wines are around 16€ per bottle.

Contact details:
Mr. Krock
Kortrijksesteenweg 590
B-9000 GENT.

Open Tuesday to Sunday: 11:30 - 14:00 and 18:00 - 22:30.
