Tierenteyn-Verlent is a historic mustard specialist at Groentenmarkt that is a fun place to visit during trips to Ghent. They have been using the same recipe since 1790 and offer pickles, spiced products and other sundries but it is the mustard that we come to purchase so that we can enjoy back home after trips to Belgium.

Opening hours now seem to be 10am to 6pm (closed on Sundays). The indoor area is a bit small and can be busy. The shopkeeper was so friendly during our last visit. We mentioned wanting to purchase an old clay jar like we had from the past. They no longer had those available but now sell a more modern style and larger jar, which they fill with their slightly sweeter mustard when you make purchase (this is fun to watch as well). Alternatively, you can purchase glass jars of both the sweeter and the spicier mustard as well.

We purchased both mustards this time around and have just now started on them back home. They are delicious and make for happy memories of time spent in Ghent and Belgium in general. Very much look forward to returning to Tierenteyn-Verlent the next time we are in the city.

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. :(

On a local recommendation, we stopped in to buy some mustard. It is their specialty and it's amazing. The fine mustard is tangy and perfection in a bottle.

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.

A friend in Amsterdam told me about this shop. He knew I was going to Ghent and asked me to bring back a jar of mustard. I thought it a strange request, but made the stop. We sampled the mustard in the shop and I was instantly a fan. I bought 4 jars to bring home. They do not ship, and the mustard must be refrigerated. My family fell in love with this unique gift and are pressuring me to go back and get more!

It is spicy! It is a family recipe, and the line is out the door at times.

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.

… it is the virulent (strong) mustard of Gent, served all over town. Also a wonderful assortment of spices and teas in cute little containers, that are easy to pack and take home as gifts...

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.

This is a lovely little shop. It sells jams and other items, but the real star is to get the mustard. Choose your pot or jar (I chose the jar for the sake of traveling) and they will spoon it in from the huge wood barrel. It's a little spicy, but absolutely delicious. Don't miss out!
