Hoogkerk Restaurants

  • Food

    Buffet like. One pays one entree price and then can eat as much as one can stomach. Bbq, grill, steamed, just take your pick.The drinks (soda's, juices and house wine red and white) can be fetched for the same price.

  • First real restaurant of Hoogkerk in...

    Baloney is situated in an old farm house and it s rather funny decorated. Ie the toilets for men have a large screen with a movie playing and guys can just p towards it (excuse me).On the picture you see the stone you are to kiss if you wanna have fortune... We went to the buffet and it served our need. The kids had a great time so we could relax.

    If you are at Groningen trainstation and want to head out this way, hop on bus number 4 or 8 (red busses) and get off it at the local supermarket Golff.

    Boxed tompoezen

    by nighthawk Written Apr 30, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Supermarket where you can buy just that bit extra one can need...like the orange tompoes we bought there.

    What to buy: Buy something with a 'bonus' sticker on it, that means it is a special offer. Do not worry you don t have a 'bonuscard', they give you the discount anyway.

    What to pay: If you follow the bonussus it is not overexpensive.

  • Fly a kite

    It is great to watch the folks fly their kite, the problem they have to keep it up in the air. Watching is what I like, keeping on up myself isn t what I want to do. Of course you need a kite and some patience too. And someone to help you of course.
