The Hague Food Guide

Since moving to The Hague over a decade ago, I (Darice) have become a bit of a foodie. I started sharing the places I eat at through my blog. But as the content has become outdated I created this food guide to keep track of my go to places. Here you'll find places I go to regularly or semi-regularly in a year. Almost all these places are in the city center.

Support me by buying me a coffee.

Buy Me a Coffee at ko-fi.com

I keep going to them because the food quality is consistent, the service is friendly and the price/quality is good. I know that the chances of being disappointed are small. I'm not paid or get any compensation to recommend these places.

Follow me on Instagram to see where I'm currently eating or drinking coffee.

Lot Sixty One

Next to Filtro, Lot Sixty One is one of my favourite coffee bars. They serve their own specialty roast and best of all they have a decaf roast. They are open 7 days a week, early morning till early evening...

Limoncello

This tiny Italian lunchroom can be found at Bankastraat. If it was closer by you'd find me here at least once a week. But considering I seldom venture out to Bankastraat plus the fact that Limoncello opening hours varies, it...

Haley’s Comet Breakfastclub

When I'm in Zeeheldenkwartier to shop at Kelly's Expat or need a break from the inner city crowd, sometimes I drop by Haley's Comet Breakfastclub for lunch. An 80's inspired breakfast/lunchroom. There is an arcade machine, gameboy's and old comic...

Momiji Ramen

Since I ate Pho at Vietstreet I'm hooked on noodles. In the same street as Vietstreet you have Momiji Ramen. Momiji is the perfect place to sit at the bar stool looking outside on a rainy day and enjoy a...

Filtro Specialty Coffee Bar

Flat White Coffee

At Filtro you can get excellent coffee. A selection of loose leaf tea and great sandwiches. Jack (owner and barista), rotates the coffee selection regularly, the food menu is small but excellent. All vegetarian. The cakes are homemade, vegan and...

Wings & Flats

Photo by Wings & Flats If there is one thing missing in The Hague, it's good chicken wings. Thank goodness for Wings & Flats. They deep fry their wings, which is the "secret sauce" to tasty wings. Dutch cuisine put...

Vietstreet

Vietstreet is my go to place for beef Pho. Every time I go there I order Pho. I haven't have Pho anywhere else so I can't compare how good this one is. But I like it. The broth is light,...

Queru, ‘Cantina Mexicana’

Taco Pollo al Pastor

The Hague city center now counts 3 traditional Mexican restaurants. With Queru as the newest one. All three their food are inspired from different parts of Mexico, hence they differ some in how they cook their food. At Queru the...

Instock

When I want to sit down and have a healthy lunch with a cup of tea I go to Instock. At Instock they cook with rescued food to fight food waste. My go to for lunch is the plank with...

Ohana

I finally caved to the poke bowl trend. I had tried a sushirrito before but wasn’t wowed by it. One day I didn’t want to cook, but didn’t want anything too unhealthy and still filling. I went to Ohana and...

Woeng Kee

Dim Sums and fried rice

Opinions vary on which is the best restaurant in Chinatown. For me, it is Woeng Kee. Woeng Kee has a couple of dishes that are my go to, like honey and walnuts chicken or fried ravioli beef dim sum. They...

South of Houston

When it’s time for sitting down for wining and dining, my go-to place is South of Houston. There isn't much to say, just that so far, I have never been disappointed here. They have a delicious mac and cheese side...

Cencalli, La Casa del Maíz

This little Mexican place can be found in a side street next to Plein. I discovered it by happenstance before they opened. I went there as soon as they opened and have been there a couple of times since. They...

Daddy Donuts x Churros Cartel

Photo from Daddy Donuts x Churros Cartel The Hague now has its very own donuts shop with fresh made heavenly donuts every day. This is the kinda place I really need to do my best to resist because otherwise, I’ll...

Five Guys

Inside Five Guys at Rotterdam Alexandrium

Finally, a fast food joint where I eat almost guilty free. Five Guys also has a basic menu, which still leaves people wondering what they are going to eat. It’s pretty simple. Hamburger, cheeseburger, bacon burger, hotdog or grilled cheese...

Salsa Shop

Salsa Shop is the minimalist place to eat. Or if you have a difficult time making a choice. Their menu is pretty simple. Beef (2 kinds), chicken, pork or vegetarian. Taco, burrito, bowl or a salad. They all come with...

Baladi Manouche

Bulgari Manouche

This little Lebanese manouche place is one of my regular go to places. My favorite is the baked falafel with veggies. Their fresh lemon juice is addictive and if you still have room, try their Halawa sweet manouche. Everything is...

Mr. Bap

Kimchi pancakes and bowl with udon noodles

Mr. Bap is a small Korean lunchroom that is easy to miss. It’s run by a Korean family — like sitting in their living room while they cook a meal for you. I especially like their Kimchi pancake and the...

‘t Achterommetje

Hidden in the alley of The Passage, this small sandwich, salad and soup place can be found. Ideal for a quiet lunch or a built your own grilled cheese sandwich. Try their meat sandwich or veggie burger. It’s your typical...
