Frenchie

Frenchie Haarlem via Facebook

Located in a historic building in the centre of Haarlem, Frenchie is a new restaurant where you can enjoy a leisurely brunch, lunch or dinner in gorgeous surroundings. The name refers to both the French-fusion menu and the owner’s four-legged friend; a French bulldog named Sunny who you might occasionally see out greeting his public. Old meets new in the décor, which has retained many of the building’s original features. Beamed ceilings and leaded windows merge with parquet flooring and palm plants.

The Pom Bar

The Pom Bar Amsterdam via Uitkrant

This casual new eatery in Amsterdam West is an homage to all things Pom; a traditional Surinamese casserole made from meat or vegetables baked together with the potatoey pomtayer root. Besides Pom, you can also try other Surinamese goodies like doksi alesi, nasi, wraps, salads and fresh soups. Take away or take a seat amidst the pot plants and turquoise walls, and wash it all down with a nice bottle of Parbo beer.
