    DÉLIFRANCE does it!: Brekkie, lunch or just a cuppa...

    by AR76 Updated Mar 9, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is more than one appropriate theme for Délifrance: Breakfast, French, Bakery, Coffeehouse, Deli and Takeaway.

    Délifrance (with restaurants in among others The Netherlands and Belgium) has a central location in downtown Enschede. Within walking distance from all the shops and bars, this lunchroom (let's call it that) is set in a pedestrianised part of town.
    The recently refurbished/renovated interior breathes quietness and takes you away from the shopping crowds.

    Favorite Dish: Freshly baked cheese croissants
    Long French toast (it claims to be 28cm long!) with cheese, mozarella, Brie, pesto and tomatoes...yummy...

    Didgeridoo Outback Restaurant: Great AUSSIE-food

    by karin_kamphuis Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is a really nice decorated restaurant with many things from Australia. We visited the restaurant before our trip to Australia to get in touch with the country and taste some REAL Australian food.

    We ate Kangaroo, Crocodile and Emoe meat. It tasted really good especially the emoe.

    We really liked the atmosphere, very local and Australian!

    It just moved from Denekamp to the city-centre of Oldenzaal. I haven't been to the new location yet, but I think It looks just as nice!

    Favorite Dish: We really liked the steaks we ordered, I think it's called the Bushtucker or the Aussiemix.

    The restaurant (Denekamp), now it has moved!!!

    Sam-sam: Good grub, good value

    by AR76 Updated Mar 9, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This cosy bistro-like restaurant has a variety of dishes and side dishes. Small appetite or really hungry, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, supper: you name it, Sam-sam serves it. The Menu of the Day is EUR5.70 (vegetarian option possible); there is a day-by-day overview per week.
    The menu indicates which courses can be served quickly and which take more time. Let the waiter know if you are in a hurry, then they will make an effort to serve your courses quicker.

    The new terrace overlooking the Oude Markt is great, especially on a warm summer night. If you are sitting inside however, you have the option to sit at the reading table: a large table with a wide choice of newspapers and different types of magazines.

    Favorite Dish: Award winning menu
    In 2003, Sam-sam won the "ProefEet": an outdoor eating and drinking festival on the Oude Markt of Enschede. The local restaurants/bistros present themselves with original dishes for the audience to taste and rate. Among Sam-sam's winning dishes is the Bologna, spaghetti pie filled with goat's cheese, gruyere, pesto, tomato and spaghetti of course. Another dish I can recommend is Ko-Shamo, an oven dish 'gratin' of chicken fillet, sweet potatoes, pieces of bacon and various mushrooms like shii-take, oyster mushrooms and white button mushrooms.

    Desserts
    Ever experienced the following? You go out for dinner, looking at the menu you see that in addition to starters and main courses there is a list of yummy looking desserts. You decide to skip the starters in order to leave some space for dessert - but once the main course is finished you are so stuffed that sadly you have to leave dessert for 'next time'...
    Sam-sam has the solution!! Rather than the average desserts that are stomach-filling in itself (no main courses needed...), they serve mini-desserts. Mini-tiramisu, mini-ice cream, ... Great for kids as well as grown-ups!
    Besides desserts, Sam-sam also has a wide choices of coffees, teas (pure tea, not from a pre-packed box!) and liquours.

    De Huifkar: Unique staff, lovely food , great choice!

    by AR76 Updated Mar 9, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A very special restaurant indeed! The personnel of De Huifkar are people with a mental handicap. Under the watching eye of a coach, they take your order, prepare the food, assist you at the buffet - and they do it all with true dedication. It might take a wee while longer to get your food, but it is all worth the while. Just look at the pride in their eyes when you make them a compliment... And oh, yeah: the food is simply gorgeous! A la carte, the menu of the day, vegetarian dishes... Not a problem at De Huifkar!
    Opening hours: Monday-Friday 5pm (kitchen open till 8pm); Sat/Sun closed.

    Favorite Dish: All dishes are yummy, but leave some space for an even yummier dessert!

    De Kater: Big portions

    by ATLC Updated Sep 2, 2008

    We chose De Kater Café-Brasserie, simply because the most people were sitting there so we reckoned it should be good. They had a dinner menu and a fingerfood (tapas) menu so we decided to have our dinner with two starters.
    It was just nice enough to sit outside under the huge parasols. The service was nice, and the view towards the church the square (see main page photo) was very agreable too.

    Favorite Dish: The shrimp Pil Pil (VERY buttery, garlicky, peppery) was very very nice with French bread and some extra fries. The Luxe Viswrap (wrap with shrimps and smoked salmon and salad) was HUGE! It was hardly a wrap, in fact the wrap was more of an afterthought.
    The paprika soup (Ali Pasja) was nice but did not really have the promised Indian taste. A very big tartar of smoked salmon sat on a bed of mixed salad. I found that the strong dressing on the tartar did kill the more delicate taste of the salmon but I still ate it with pleasure.

    Accompanied with 3 glasses of rosé wine, 2 softdrinks and 2 coffees, the bill amounted to 51 euro (70 USD) for 2 persons.
