  The Mustard Shop
by Mick001

A beautiful traditional old shop which has hardly changed over many years.

What to buy: The speciality of the shop is its home-made mustard which is kept in a large wooden barrel at the back of the shop. You buy a suitable sized container and, with much panache, they pour the mustard from a wooden ladle into your jar. It's a fantastic mustard, too, strong but not harsh or bitter. I now have to bring several jars back for friends on each visit.

What to pay: Varies on size of container - abot 3-5 euros gets you decent jar - and you get a discount if you return it for re-filling

Address: Near Korenmarkt
Directions: Walk from Korenmarkt - shop is on your right after about 100 metres - before the trams take a sharp right turn
Theme: Food and Drink

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
