Everybody goes to the Keukenhof
The magnificent garden of Keukenhof!

Well, ofcourse you can get some food and drinks there. It's quiet pricy, but you are spending anyhow. It is not like: Lets have dinner there also. I would say: just for a snack and a drink it's okay. When you really want to have lunch or dinner, go to Haarlem or Amsterdam. Enough to choose from, good pricing and value for money. And it's only a half hours drive away!

We had a "patat oorlog" (dunno where that name comes from ? ) with onions, mayonaise and peanut sauce and frikandel speciaal, some kind of saucage with ketchup & onions.
Keukenhof is one of the best place that I think anyone and everyone should go when visiting this country. Even though it's the largest garden in the world, your legs will never get tired as it is an awesome place and you'll never regret it.
Fondest memory: Visiting Keukenhof was the first thing that I did when I was in the Netherlands, and it gives such a wonderful memories. Since that day onwards, I planted a very good memory and impression of this country, that is the beauty that lies within this lil country.
