A Dutch Restaurant?

A new restaurant opened last week.

There is no sign on the building, but there is a clue in the window.

Welcome to Van Gogh’s Eeterie!

Come in, sit down, and have a look around.

The cuisine is not like any other in town. Perhaps you would like a taste of

Dutch dishes:

  • Sweet or savory pannenkoek (Dutch pancake)
  • Broodjes (sandwiches)
  • Stampots (potatoes mashed with additional vegetables)

Not to your taste?  Then try some Indonesian-Dutch cuisine:

  • Nasi Goreng (Indonesian fried rice)
  • Sate Platter (chicken skewers with peanut sauce)
  • Laap pa (fish salad)

Or would you rather sample something from each type of cuisine?

What ever you decide, you will find Van Gogh waiting.

  1. What beautiful photos – you could be the advertiser! I would go for the atmosphere first and ask what the waiters and waitresses like best … this has never steered me wrong.If they don’t eat there – LEAVE!

  2. If you can’t join them, beat them? Why be like every other Italian/Asian/American… establishment. Bring on the Dutch and a bit of Van Gogh, pretty clever.

  3. When I was very young I used to dream about visiting Holland to see the tulips. Obviously I would be very interested in trying out this new restaurant if it weren’t so far away. I love new cuisine discoveries and “traveling” to new places. Someday I hope to get there….

    • I’ve never seen a Dutch restaurant in the States. I do enjoy the food when I go to the Netherlands. I’m looking forward to trying more.

  4. I am all for trying new dishes. These sound interesting. Around here Dutch food has a whole different meaning…Hog Maw (pig stomach); Schnitz und Knepp (Ham with Dried Apples and Dumplings); etc.

  5. Just loved the photos and the description of the dishes. I want to try Dutch pancakes and stampots. The sate platter, too. Definitely a place I would go for lunch! Comfortable, welcoming. Thanks for sharing, Elsie!
