The dutch are not a fish eating nation. So it’s a complete mystery to me that my most favorite street food is invented by the dutch! Dutch (raw) herring. BUT YOU NEED TO KNOW WHERE TO GO. A dutch herring can be a life altering experience or one that will completely blow you off. Don’t take this warning lightly. Yesterday one of my friends invited me to his favorite herring spot. Leo van Rhijn in Haarlem, Frans Halsplein 12. Sometimes one comes across a real gem and this was one of them. When it comes to food i’m seldom proud of our (Dutch) gastronomical heritage. But yesterday I was proud to be dutch.
