Am I kidding? Of course I am, even in fastfood there are better alternatives. But I just couldn't resist the opportunity to show you that this junkfood multinational mutilated this nice building. Like they have done in many old cities.
Never forget to taste a local speciality! The speciality of 's-Hertogenbosch is the Bossche Bol, a more or less ball-shaped piece of pastry with whipped cream inside and chocolate on the outside. Only one bakery makes the real one but you can find them at many places in the city.
The Bossche Bol is not just another ordinary pastry. It cannot be eaten in an elegant way. It needs to be defeated, torn apart and devoured. You may end up with chocolate in your face, on your hands and on your clothes. The Bossche bol will not easily surrender to you, but in the end you will win. An experience you won't forget!
Everything in the Korte Putstraat
You can always something to your liking in this charming little street just off the Parade. The Korte Putstraat has grown into a gastronomical delight and is one long continuation of bars and small restaurants.
Don't miss it when you're in Den Bosch, even if you're only after a beer and a small snack!
Cantina San Juan: Best Mexican I have ever eaten
This is a Mexican restaurant and that's the only type of food they serve. You'll be fine by just ordering the fajitas. You can get plenty of extra wraps to put all the meat in. When you're finished eating everything and I dare you you can still choose something else. I have never been able to eat everything I was served.

Jan de Groot lunchroom: Eat the Bossche Bol here
This is the only place where the real Bossche Bol is sold. At least according to the locals. The Bol is chocolate and a lot of whipped cream. It is delicious and typical Den Bosch. You've got to taste it. Don't go here when you've just eaten, because it is quite mighty!
In den Zevenden Hemel: Best carpaccio ever!
This restaurant is cosy and you can sit outside in a lovely street full of restaurants. The menu is extensive and it is very hard to make a decision since you would want to try everything. The menu is international so you will find carpaccio next to kangaroo for example.
Favorite Dish: What you should absolutely take as a starter is the carpaccio. It is the best I have ever eaten anywhere! I'm sure you will like it too!!!
Restaurant "Het Bosch Kwartiertje": Enjoy Bourgondian atmosphere by coming too late
This little restuarant in an alley in the centre of Den Bosch has a great menucard and a wonderful atnosphere. Here it is even recommended by coming too late, as the name of the restaurant already predicts. People from Den Bosch are traditionally haunted by this saying: a Bosch quarter of an hour ... which means being 15 minutes late.
Favorite Dish: Any Dutch (say Bourgondian) dish is deliscious.
Jan de Groot Backery: Don't mis "Bossche Bollen"
You can only get the real "Bossche Bollen" in Den Bosch (somewhere else they do not taste like this).
It is a kind of pastry filled with whipped cream and covered whith chocolate... hmmm, absolutely delicious
Bonne Mère: Bonne Mère
Kind of a mix between a brown café and a bistro.
We haven't eaten there, just stopped for afternoon coffee.

Fat Kee: Fat Kee Chineese
Enjoyed our meal here, guesswork what to have (in Dutch only) and still not sure what it was, tasty though.
Our hotel bar, great choice of beers and whisky. sometimes there's music, not while we visited unforunately.
Worth a visit, closed on Mondays though.
Bar le Duc: Bar le Duc
The beer was the attraction here for us. Brewed on the premesis, t'kolleke old or young, lots of other ones sold too. Could spend hours there. Very busy in the evenings
Looking for a meal, this place was in the the first we found. Good Greek food and not too expensive. Friendly staff helped us with the menu, our Greek or Dutch isn't very good!
