National cuisine is quite simple, so many even call it "village". Herring is one of the most favorite dishes of the local people. These are slices of herring with fresh onion and mild-cured cucumbers. This delicacy is present on all holiday tables and is offered in any restaurant of national cuisine. It should be also noted that herring is prepared in various ways in this region.
Among other seafood, which is respected by local people, we should definitely underline perch and eel, the methods of preparation of which are also different. Fresh and steamed vegetables remain the main garnish to fish and meat dishes. We recommend trying "potaten" - fried potato slices that are somewhat reminiscent of familiar French fried potato.
The dish called "hotpot" is among the most popular meat dishes of the region. This is a stew that is usually served with roasted cabbage. Vegetarians will love "stampot" - soft mashed potatoes served with braised cabbage. Local restaurants also feature widest selection of hot and cold sandwiches. Uitsmijter is considered the "king of sandwiches". This is a big sandwich with scrambled eggs, ham and bacon. When it comes to alcohol, local people definitely prefer beer. If beer is “too light” for you, you may enjoy juniper vodka that is very popular here.
