“Gehaktballen” from Dungelman

Not exactly in keeping with the current spell of tropical weather we are experiencing here in London, but I just wanted to let you all know that Dungelman are still going strong.

Dungelman used to be a famous butcher, now a take-away/cafe + deli in The Hague, The Netherlands. See my blog “Fast Good” from a while back.

They are still based at their premises in de Hoogstraat in The Hague; in fact, I have it on good authority that they have added a range of delicious ready meals to their assortment and that they won  a price a couple of years ago for their “gehaktballen” (Dutch meatballs for the unitiatited…).

Interesting how this business has evolved from butcher to cafe + deli. A sign of the times I suppose: The Hague is not immune to the erosion of time to cook and cooking skills.

There you go, Johanna! Nothing to stop you now from planning your trip to The Hague and reminiscing about yesteryear.

I am feeling quite nostalgic about “kroketten”  (meat ragout encased in breadcrumbs and deep-fried: sounds revolting I know, until you try it) myself now….
