Flavor’s (The Hague, The Netherlands)
Willem de Zwijgerlaan 44-A, 2582 ER, The Hague, The Netherlands
Flavor’s brands itself as “a combination of a brasserie, coffeeshop, restaurant (café).” Situated in an upscale part of The Hague – there is also a location in Vlaardingen – it offers an eclectic mix of dishes that you can find in a broad variety of different Dutch restaurants, including bitterballen (meat croquets in the shape of balls), chicken sate, salads. Its specialty are the spare ribs.
We started with the Brown Flavor’s Bread (€4.50), which comes with three spreads (aioli, tapenade and herb butter). The spreads are more impressive than the bread, which is average. I then get bitterballen (€6.00), which for some reason are translated on the English menu as Burgundian Meatballs, which are good. The Homemade Meatball Sandwich (€7.00) is big but not very tasty. The Twister Fries with Mayonnaise (€3.50), which I get for my son, are both disappointing.
Flavor’s is a cozy place to eat, with many different and relaxed options, but the quality is not remarkable.
