Street Food

Street carts are universal. Americans love them - Belgians love them. This is a frite shop in Mechelen. It was easily the busiest place we saw in the city.
This cart sold escargot. They came in a kind of broth, out of their shells, and were delicious.
Meat carts, of course, are ubiquitous and popular.
On a market-day stretch in Ghent, we spotted this fresh orange juice lady, with her juicing machine. Rebecca is working the crank to crush the oranges.
Fresh nougat at a cart in Leuven. The man selling it sliced them with a big bread knife and charged by the kilo.
