The story that turned a raw burger into a 176 EUR donation to the starving people in Nepal.

Part 2. We had the opportunity to stay in two beautiful hotels. Read all about our stay in Infant Sagres and Eurostars Das Artes.
Part 1. Arriving in Porto, almost being scammed by a Interrent (a car rental company), and getting to see the real face of Porto, one of beauty and honesty.
It was a very warm day so we decided to eat outside. The garden is a very nice place to sit. Our table was under a large tree and they use indirect light to brighten it up. If you are planning a romantic dinner, you can’t fail with this restaurant.
After hearing about this place from a couple of people we know, we decided to go check it out. It scores well on other food websites (although it kind of gets mixed reviews) and seems to currently be one of the “popular” places in Ghent. Our expectations weren’t really high, we didn’t really know what to expect. The information on the website states: “j.e.f. where friendship, atmosphere, yummy and affordable food and a nice glass of wine are most important”. Sounds good, but then when you look at the menu the prices are on the higher side. Not a big deal if the food is going to be top-notch, of course.
Stepping into Route 46 American Resto in Oudenaarde is like stepping into a little piece of USA in the middle of Belgian nowhere. Theres a limousine on top of the roof to greet you while you’re driving into the parking lot. Then there are the quiet lovely red/white booths inside the diner with the statue of liberty to top it all off. The place is spacious but not overwhelmingly so, has a nice outside terrace and was buzzing with life.
Last week we visited the two most popular Burger restaurants of Ghent. Paul’s Boutique, currently the best restaurant in Ghent according to tripadvisor.com and Ellis Gourmet, a larger restaurant on the Korenmarkt (main square of Ghent).
The interior is special to say the least. It’s really like having breakfast (Saturday only), brunch or even lunch in your own kitchen. The “restaurant” looks like a big DIY project perfectly executed. There are no napkins, but there is a big roll of kitchen paper on your table. Like… home.
Wok A Way is very popular restaurant in Ghent. This Asian restaurant is a great pick if you just want a quick bite to eat. For the first time we had both a starter and a main course here. There are a few things you should know if you’ve never been here. When you walk in you are supposed to order before you take a seat at your table, a bit like at Mc Donalds (with the difference being that Wok A Way serves quality food).
