last week i was talking with some friends of mine about maybe visiting to the netherlands and we were discussing why visiting this coutnry is a must. Then we came on the topic food.... however, no one had any idea at all!!! does holland has any typical food?? (except for cheese).....30 May 2007, 11:33 Jeff
We have typical dutch food but that's actually a reason not to visit Holland... However, because our food is so disgusting, we have many italian, chinese, vietnameese, indonesian, greek, turkish etc. restaurants and diners.
And if you want to try something dutch, take chips with peanutsauce (the sauce comes from indonesia but ok), avaible in any snackbar. Just ask for a patatje pinda and enjoy.
PS, dutch drinks are a good reason to visit us!nn 07 Jun 2007, 03:50 - Report
Yes of course we have!
We have many typical Dutch snacks:
* Bitterballen (A sort of a meat-based snack but then crispy outside, I don't know how to explain it but it is delicious)
* Dropjes (Candy, it's black. Also known in America as "Liquorice candy"
* Frikandel (not frikadel, but frikandel) a sort of minced-meat hot dog.
* The most popular Dutch Dinner: Hutspot. Onions and carrots served with slow-cooked meat or bacon.
* Rew herring. Try it! Belive it or not, it's really delicious.

The Dutch tend to speak in low terms about their food. But, in fact,we eat some marvelous things, such as raw hering, baked blood-sausages and pigsheadmeat held together in sour gelatine (so called 'zult') Really mouthwatering ! It's worth visiting our country. And what about the worldfamous hash-cake? Available everywhere.Frank 09 Aug 2007, 01:50 - Report

I'm desperately looking for Hellema cookies. I can't buy the products from Italy and I need someone who could kindly send a package to me...

One word, stroopwafels. Two thin waffel cookies with carmel-like goo in the middle. Haven't eaten any other traditional foods because I don't eat meat, but you have to try stroopwafels. Beware the licorice though, it's not what you might be used to if you are from the western hemisphere: salty. Worth trying, but might not be to your liking.Anon. 11 Apr 2008, 12:49 - Report
