Hi ChloesmomNJ! Thank you for having lunch at ours! We were pleased to serve you ;-) Indeed, the mashed potatoes are the favorites one of everyone! Did you know we also have restaurants in Brussels, Leuven & Antwerp ;-) You're welcome there as well!

At Balls & Glory you order the minute you enter the restaurant. The concept is simple: you choose from four different meatballs, all with a hearty and liquid filling, and either a salad or 'stoemp' (mashed potato with veg). Then you find yourself a seat...More

Great concept, they had three different meatballs to choose from with a choice of salad and mash. The mash also had a mix of vegetables mixed together. Really tasty and good value. The staff were friendly. Overall it's a must when visiting Ghent!
