Brasserie Meys (The Hague, The Netherlands)
Frederik Hendrikplein 36, The Hague, The Netherlands
Brasserie Meys is not really a pig out spot. It is a typical Dutch lunch place with a nice terrace and a broad selection of big salads and sandwiches. Everything is remarkably fresh and some is even quite healthy.
However, they also serve French Fries (€3.50) and Kwekkeboom Kroketten (€8). I ordered the French fries for my small son, who only eats French fries when we are out, but ate quite a lot myself, because they were really tasty. They are big fries, prepared perfectly, very crispy from the outside and soft inside. The (Belgian-style) mayo was also very tasty. Meat Croquettes come in different forms and Kwekkeboom is one of the most upscale brands. They are bigger and meatier than regular croquettes, but also more expensive. Most importantly, they were delicious.
While not the place to pig out, the fries and croquettes here are very tasty, if expensive.
