When we moved to Gent in 2007, we received a map of all the pubs there and BabyLuv & I decided that we'd go to all of them. Unfortunately the map teared when I tried to move it to another wall and I had to throw it away.
Early November this year, I got a new similar map but it pointed all the Gentse restaurants! This was just perfect because we adore going to the restaurant. So we decided to try every restaurant in town. What a challenge! We're on the right track already and we still go to our favorite places often but we like to try a different one now and then.

Tonight we went to a restaurant called Bij den Wijzen en den Zot, which serves Belgian food mostly and which has the best fish Waterzooi, a sort of soup with vegetables and different sorts of fish. It is normally prepared with chicken and it's delicious as well. BabyLuv and I both took it as our main course and we weren't disappointed, it was very yummy!

The decor is really nice: it's in a small old house and there is some old decoration from earlier and the wooden floor is not very straight, which is the bad point cos it's not so comfortable when everyhting is tilted, you included.

Anyway, this is the first article of many more to come. I hope we'll get to go to many different ones to enjoy our city as much as we can.
