Dutch cuisine is typically centred around a high protein diet. It contains lots of meat, fish and stews. That being said the Netherlands is also well known for the variety of restaurants on offer. A typical breakfast could include some rolls, cheese, ham, hard-boiled eggs and maybe even some peanut butter or jelly. That is usually served up with a nice strong black cup of coffee.

Meals, of course, range in price but it’s advisable to stick with the dagschotel or meal of the day. That could get up to about 25 euros. For those of you who are vegetarian, you will also find that it’s not difficult to be accommodated since most restaurants offer at least one meal without meat.
