There has been a grilled chicken joint called ‘Kiekekot’ (Flemish for chicken coop) in the same spot in Leuven for over 50 years. A legendary place where pub-crawling students bought cheap eat-in or take-out grilled chicken filled with a secret spicy herbs mixture and served with slices of white bread. Since the long-time owner closed shop in 2012, the place seems to struggle because there have been at least two new owners.

As we happened to pass by in the early evening, we bought a chicken and got a rebate because it was already the last one available. No more late-night craving for grilled chicken or spur-of-the moment dinner partiesverage quality: the Kiekekot is open every day from noon to 10 p.m. and previous reservation is advisable if you want to be sure to find a chicken.

Prices are very cheap but the chicken wasn’t great. It contained too much rosemary, which gave it a medicinal taste.
