The Hague Food Guide

The Hague Food Guide is a simple guide to coffee, lunch and dinner spots in the city centre of The Hague. It is maintained by me, Darice. I moved to the Netherlands 22 years ago from Aruba and I have been living in The Hague for the past 18 years. When I moved to The Hague I got more into food and am now a foodie at heart. My tastes vary a lot, mostly I lean towards foods that are of good quality, great taste and fairly priced. On my guide, you’ll find places I frequent several times a year. One more than the other, but they are always on my radar.

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. These reviews are honest and commerce free.

Vincenzo’s

Vincenzo's, unfortunately, doesn't serve Puccia sandwiches anymore at their location in the city center. You can still dine there and order pizza after 17:00. I was very happy when I saw that Vincenzo's opened a location in the city center....

Ohana

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...

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...

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...

Five Guys

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...
