Everyone is thinking about how visits to restaurants and cafés will look after 1 June when terraces will again be allowed to open – if the coronavirus numbers allow it, of course.
The Grote Markt plaza has a plan in the meantime, and it involves food trucks:
Generally this area is filled to the brim with tables and chairs from all of the nearby restaurants. Here is a photo overlooking the area from a nearby restaurant (photo taken in 2015).
Here is a look at what they are serving (or selling):
From upper left (“Bloemen”): Flowers, coffee, pizza, croissants, ice cream, sandwiches, Thai food, Cold Turkey (a type of beer from the nearby restaurant Hoender en Hop, apparently), fries, and vinyl records. There isn’t much information available online about this food truck action, but it could be that it is only running Thursday through Sunday.
And here are some more chalk drawings. I’m unsure if they are supposed to mark the distance between 1.5 meters or not, as some of them are more haphazardly placed. Or maybe they are just decoration, which is cool too.
