Ghent. (Gent.) Lunch. Monday. Where? (Eel?)

Heading to Ghent on a Monday and looking for someplace interesting for lunch. Non-touristy and non-fine dining preferred. (As it's a Monday, most fine dining seems closed, anyway.)

Intrigued by eel if that's an option. But, given limited openings, I'm open to any interesting suggestions.

Thanks!

    For the best eel ('paling'), you'll have to go outside the town. Drive for 40 min. and go to Siphon (http://www.siphon.be/), a classic for eel. Sint-Jan-in-Eremo is another small village that specializes in Eel. Elmare or Roste Muis serve good eel. Don't expect anything fancy, but simple, great food. A list of all eel restaurants in that place: http://www.sint-laureins.be/toerisme/...
