Tierenteyn-Verlent is a famous maker of mustard in Ghent. You can find this cute little shop at Groentenmarkt. Opening hours are 9.30-6pm (closed on Sundays).

They have been making mustard the same way at Tierenteyn-Verlent since 1790 and rightly so - it is delicious. Join the queue of locals and informed tourists eager to stock up on Tierenteyn-Verlent mustards, pickles, spiced products and sundries.

I really like their spicy mustard. It is strongly flavoured but flavourful and hint of sweetness. You can purchase in glass jars or in unique Tierenteyn-Verlent mustard jars which make really nice souvenirs of your trip to Ghent.

The Tierenteyn-Verlent shop is also a delight to view, even if you are not going to make purchase. The Old World feel of their shop matches the centuries old mustard recipe perfectly.

I was waiting to come to Ghent to buy original Tierenteyn mustard since I first time tried it in Antwerpen few years ago. And I was not disappointed. You can choose only one original type of mustard (as it should be), different packaging sizes, not expensive for such niche product, great service, lady explained everything we asked.

Heard good things about this mustard, and I love spicy mustard, so we took the time to visit. Even though they were busy, the woman at the counter took the time to give me a free tasting, warn me that it was spicy, and patiently wait while I decided what size to get. As for the mustard, it's a spicy dijon mustard, but with a really complex and delicious taste. And the price was very reasonable for the amount I got, and very well packaged for my travel home.

Requested for a sample of their mustard and all the lady at the store said was,"it's all the same! No sample!"

I still bought a medium jar to try. I'm better off buying Amora mustard in France. My entire family prefers Amora.

Not a place I would ever recommend. If you're here to have a good time, better to skip this place.

Ghentで見つけたマスタードのお店。
お店の扉を開けて中に入ると、お店の方が地元のお客様の接客中。
接客が終るまで、お店の中を見ていて目に止まった瓶に入った手作りマヨネーズ。

お店では計り売りの小さなマスタードと、気になった瓶に入ったマヨネーズ(小)を購入してきました。
日本に戻り、早々にマヨネーズもマスタードを使ってお料理をしてみました。

マヨネーズはスーパーで購入する物より滑らかで優しい味、そしてマスタードは酸味が柔らかく少しピリッとして私好みの味。

両方とも、とても美味しかったです。

お店の方もとても親切で、私の質問に笑顔で答えてくれました。

マヨネーズもマスタードも直ぐになくなってしまいそうで、もう少し大きい物を購入してくれば良かったと少し後悔です。

I tourist from Japan which at the other day, your shop and purchased mayonnaise and mustard. I came back to Japan and used mayonnaise and the mustard for dishes. Both the mayonnaise and the mustard were very delicious. The mustard in particular was the most delicious mustard while I ate so far. When I went to at the shop, thank you in response to kindness. When I went to Ghent again, I going to at the shop by all means.

From Japan,
Seumgmi.

by chance we wandered into this delightful little shop while we were walking by. They sell their own mustard which they grind and make downstairs in the cellar. It is fabulous. You can taste if you wish. They also sell jams, mustard seeds and a few other items. I brought a very small jar home (unfortunately) but because it was so delicious, I contacted them to see if I could buy any in the US. Answer, was no, but I have a friend going to Gent next spring and she promised to bring some back to me. The cute jars make great gifts and are easy to pack. Highly recommend.

If you want the best mustard - maybe in the world? - anyway, the strongest I know, then go this place. Already the market place is beautiful (try the 'Cuberdons') but the way you will get served at this place, is just great. And you will enjoy the mustard for many years, really...

This is an olde worlde place with a selection of foods and ingredients that is good. The curry mayonnaise is one of the best I know. Delhaize does a near equivalent. The famous house mustard is good but for someone like me, who doesn't know her mustard, it's just mustard. There are other good things if you poke around.

The reason I only give it a 2 star rating is because during numerous visits over three years the staff there seem disinterested in the customers, frequently leaving you to wait for longish periods unnecessarily and giving you the sense they're a little too good to be dealing with the customers. Consequently I go in to buy only what I want and don't browse other goodies so I can get out again quickly. A slight change in friendliness would transform the experience

Best mustard and people were very helpful and accommodating. Brought home three jars, one for myself and the other two for gifts. Everyone LOVED them! Wish I could order more from home, but haven't been able to find where I can order them. :(
