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 2009, 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.

IntrÔvert is at about 5 minutes by bike from our home. We've been there a few times already and we enjoyed the closeness and the food a lot. It's situated next to a canal where the rowing teams practice and compete: there's a beautiful sight and a huge terrasse. The inside decoration is pretty awesome! I don't have a picture yet but I'll definitely take a few next time.
Tonight we chose to eat outside since it was so warm and sunny. We were lucky to be placed in a corner where we could see the whole terrasse. We took something to drink and it was very refreshing.

We chose to have a starter because BabyLuv craved oysters. I took some shrimps in cocktail sauce. The oysters were so good, it's the first time I actually liked the texture. The shrimps were really fresh and tasty. I love cocktail sauce too.

The waiter brought us some deeelicious brown bread. If I could only eat one sort of bread, it would be it.

We had the misfortune to wait 1h30 for our main course: one of the waiter gave our plates to another table! The waitress apologized three times but it wasn't her fault. She was very kind and helpful and so energetic! She was going around the tables like a real pro!
BabyLuv's salmon salad was delicious (he always let me taste his food) but I was a bit disappointed with my duck filet salad because it's not what I expected. It was good but I didn't enjoy it as much as the smells of the steaks and entrecôtes on the other table... I think I was just ready to eat a warm meal but BabyLuv changed my mind just before ordering. Next time i'll go with my guts!
