WHAT ARE SOME TYPICAL DUTCH DISHES I SHOULD TRY?
Bitterballen: Deep-fried breadcrumb-covered balls with creamy meat-ragout fillings, traditionally made with beef, beef broth, flour and seasonings. Traditional Dutch snack.
Raw Herring: This raw fish is usually eaten with chopped onions and pickles, balancing out the salty taste of the fish. Worth a try, but stay clear if you are not used to eating raw seafood.
Dutch cheese: The Netherlands has historically been known for its variety and quality of cheese. You can find a variety in any supermarket near you, or try a sample at a farmer’s market around the city.
Stroopwafel: Two thin layers of baked dough with caramel filling in the middle. Goes well with a hot drink – you will find yourself gobbling up an entire pack in one sitting.
Hagelslag: A popular Dutch-style toast with chocolate sprinkles on the top. Simply cannot go wrong.
