Jilles Burger in Ghent: The place to combine beers and burgers

The perfect way to end the day visiting Ghent for me is to eat a gastronome burger paired with an excellent beer. Let’s check out Jilles Burger together!

So What is Jilles Burger?

At Jilles they make sure to cook the nicest of burgers. Beef, pork, chicken or even veggie. Everyone there has an option to their taste. The burgers aren’t just your average burger either. They are crafted to the gourmet level of burgers. Next-level average food, as you could put it.

To top of the burgers, they worked together with famous Belgian beer sommelier Sofia Vanrafelghem. She made sure each burger has a cold beer that accompanies the taste brilliantly.

To go even further they work together with Brewery Fort Lapin to create their own beers: Rostekop and Golfbreker.
