Apart from being part of West Flanders where World War 1 was fought I don't think much can be said about this small village with a large church. Potje Paté means a Jar of paté or liver pie.

Alveringem, not the most vivid village in Belgium. However there is a hidden pearl here, potje paté. seemingly a normal Belgian bistro, but it definitely is not! Joris (the chef) is a talented guy that uses regional products and creates pure dishes. The price you pay for this kind of quality is negligible. Must try for meat lovers!

Go for the “Potje Paté Festival” menu and ask for the accompanying beers instead of wine.... More

We took a bible ride from Lo along the river to have lunch here. It was busy on a weekday for lunch. If you love pâté, you would be in paradise. Even for someone like me who is not crazy about pâté, I enjoyed a few of them very much! I had the bacon dish whose name I could not... More
