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!
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!!!
When you're in Den Bosch, you just can't miss all those pretty restaurants. There are two main eating & drinking areas: the most important one is at Korte Putstraat. This street is lined on both sides with bistros and restaurants. Very appealing!
The second area is around Uilenburg.
Well, wherever you end up, food will be plentyful and good.
You're in Noord-Brabant where people know how to live well.
Den Bosch has many terraces to choose from. These cafes are very popular in the Netherlands and they are always crowded on a sunny day. Some serve drinks only and some offer food as well
They don't have big board to tell you "We are here!" But the full busy seating says it. It's always crowded after 7pm, mostly for the food. They don't have paper menu. You have to ask the waitress or read the menu board at the door. Don't worry about cheating price. What you will eat worths every penny you pay. The portion is quite big, especially the spare ribs. I always order the small portion of spare ribs (around 2/3 of normal portion); otherwise, I can't enjoy the included salad and fries. The ineterior decoration is interesting with head statues and many old Dutch stuff.
Favorite Dish: 1. Turnedo: excellent steak, with Parma cheese and pesto sauce. The other steak with mushroom or pepper sauce is also good. But I prefer this Italian style to taste the original flavor of the beef.
2. Spare Ribs: It's the specialty of this restaurant. They cook it in the boiling water first, grill it a bit then, and put home-made sweet-sour sauce. The meat is so soft that you can slit the meet from the bone easily.
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!
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.
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!
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.
I've read somewhere that this pub is frequented by hockey ladies and rugby guys. We were in fact seated next to a group of six ladies, but I doubt whether they actually played hockey.
Nice decoration with wooden beams, and fancy stained glass windows ...
Favorite Dish: We just dropped in to have some 'Glühwein', it was Christmas time after all (28 December 2008).
