    New York Diner: And then I found cheese cake again!!!!

    by Nathalie_B Written Mar 28, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It became my "hobby" to search for cheese cake in The Netherlands. Another place that serves my favorite cake is located in The Hague.
    New York Diner serves muffins, bagels, hamburgers, even eggs benedict for breakfast... well, simply imagine typical diner in the US just a bit smaller.

    Koekela: Finally I found cheese cake!!!

    by Nathalie_B Updated Jan 11, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    So far, looks like all the food I was looking for can me found in Rotterdam only.
    How come that in the country, well known for its cheese, you can't find any cafe that serves cheese cake?? And believe me, I looked for it everywhere. Lucky me, my dear Wenasje and Kozzmozz introduced me to "Koekela" where I finally could enjoy the cake! This was the greatest B-Day surprise guys, thanks!!

    Favorite Dish: Everything looks great and delicious there cookies, cakes, muffins, and brownies!!!

    Sakura: Sushi

    by Nathalie_B Updated Mar 28, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As a real sushi addict I was looking for a nice Japanese restaurant since I've arrived in The Netherlands. And I did found one, in Rotterdam.
    All the staff is Japanese, but they do speak perfect Dutch (shame on me, I don't). It is located not so far from the Rotterdam Centraal train station, about 10-15 minutes walk. The food is very good, the decorations, service, and the athmosphere are pleasant as well.
    Sakura is a chain and you can find their restaurants in Arnhem, Scheveningen, Rotterdam and Antwerpen (Belgium)

    De Corenmaet in Breda: Don't miss the tapas!

    by Dutchnatasja Written Nov 1, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My favourite restaurant in Breda is The Corenmaet. The Corenmaet is located on a square named the Havermarkt, on the corner, behind the church. They are serving lunch and dinner. On the menu you’ll find a selection of tapas, which are very tasty. A few times a month I come to this place, and drink some wine and eat something delicious from the menu. They have a great ambience with a friendly staff (always smiling), and some good music on the background.

    Favorite Dish: Definitely the tapas!

    Oudejans: the sandwiches!

    by margaretvn Written Aug 28, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    this lovely bar/ restaurant is in the centre of De Rijp next to the tourist information in DE Waag. So you cannot miss it, when we were there it was lovely weather so we were able to sit outside. The people were so friendly and our lunch was so tasty and not expensive.

    Favorite Dish: Koos had as delicious fresh bread roll with goats cheese, walnuts and honey syrup. I had a "broodje gezond" bread with cheese, ham, egg, tomato and salad. Everything was very fresh and tasty and the open terrace was claen and sheltered - just the place to linger with a drink and chat

    Flevoland - Het Wapen van Ens: Diner with a view

    by vtveen Updated Jun 19, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    'Het Wapen van Ens' is situated in the Noordoostpolder and we had a diner after we finished an auto tour along the tulip fields in this Dutch polder. And it was just nice to have a table at the window with a view on the tulip fields on the other side of the road. (The other time of the year you will have a great view on the polder landscape.)

    It is a typical local resaturant with good and fair food.

    Favorite Dish: We did take the menu of the month.

    Specialised seafood restaurant in the not so attractive but lively harbour area.

    Favorite Dish: Although it's been a while since I was there, I remember the great oysters I had here. The largest I've ever eaten, prepared Asian style with soy sauce and chillies.

    Dutch cheese

    by sim1 Updated Jan 25, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    When thinking of lunch or breakfast then I would say the best thing to have is a sandwich with cheese! Yummy! The Dutch cheeses are great, and are my absolute favourite. The unfortunate thing is though that they often taste less bought abroad than at home in The Netherlands. Hahaha, maybe we keep the best for ourselves, lol ;-))

    The most well-known is probably the Gouda, and I wouldn't be surprised if this is the most eaten one as well. This cheese comes in several tastes varying on the stages of maturity. jong is the least mature one and is mild in flavour. Belegen (my favourite) is much tastier. Oud or old cheese is very strong in taste, with a grainy flaky texture.
    Well-known abroad is the Edam cheese (the small round cheeses with the red wax around it). Strangely enough this cheese in not eaten that much in The Netherlands itself. Edammer cheese is semi-soft in texture but slightly drier than the Gouda cheese.

    Coffee, coffee and more coffee

    by sim1 Updated Jan 25, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    The Dutch drink lots and lots of coffee, litres of it! The Dutch coffee is good and strong and it is served with koffiemelk (evaporated milk) and sugar. Having ordinary milk in the coffee is not very usual. If you want to have your coffee with warm milk you should order a 'koffie verkeerd'.

    In the picture you can see an old-fashioned advertising sign for Kanis & Gunnik coffee, a Dutch brand of coffee.

    You rather drink tea?

    by sim1 Updated Jan 25, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    You rather drink tea than coffee? No problem at all! I just love tea, I think you can wake me up in the middle of the night for a cuppa, lol :-)) When visiting people just tell them that you drink tea instead of coffee. As a standard they make coffee when there are visitors, but it is not unpolite to ask for tea instead.

    Restaurant Het Veerhuis: Broekhuizen, Restaurant Het Veerhuis

    by ATLC Updated Sep 26, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the province Limburg, along the river Maas, lies the tiny village Broekhuizen which can be reached by road but also by ferry from Arcen, across the Maas.

    Veerhuis means "ferryhouse" and is situated right on the border of the Maas.

    Favorite Dish: What did we enjoy ? The French white housewine, the asparagus Thai style and asparagus with monkfish, the ginger icecream dessert. the little surprises that came with the coffee, the asparagus flower arrangement on the table and the grand view of the river Maas with boats passing by all the time.

    Gelderland - Hoog Soeren: Pannenkoeken-Restaurant Berg en Dal

    by vtveen Updated Apr 15, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the middle of the tiny village of Hoog Soeren, located 5 km’s west of Apeldoorn surrounded by vast forests, is a small and cosy restaurant. According to its name it is serving a wide range of pancakes, on the menu are more than 120 different kinds of this typical Dutch food.

    In case you don’t like pancakes (which I can not imagine) you can get a lot of other dishes, among them some specialities from the Veluwe.

    Favorite Dish: 'Of course' our nDutch speciality: one of the pancakes.
    Good value for your money
