This is about spending a few winter days In the Hague tasting cheese. My two grown up kids live in The Hague where they are both studying Fine Arts. The city reminds me so much of Copenhagen in Denmark, where I lived for many years. If you travel to The Netherlands, you must definitely go visit The Hague, which is quite different from Amsterdam. The Hague is calm and beautiful, and not many tourists especially not during the winter.
There are nice food shopping options. Visit the organic supermarkets called Ekoplaza, and best of all; the cheese shop called Ed Boele in Fahrenheitstraat!! For many years this shop won a price of being the best cheese shop in the Netherlands.
Where to find cheese in The Hague
We actually went to this fantastic cheese shop, Ed Boele, by chance. We walked down Fahrenheitstraat to explore the area, and to enjoy the afternoon and eat Kippeling, which is fresh deep fried fish served from a food truck. These Kippelings were fantastic! But the lucky punch was finding this cheese shop.
We bought 6 different kinds of cheese and olives as well, and I promised myself to go back and buy more to take back home to London. Can you imagine to buy cheese in The Hague to bring back to London. I suppose I need alternatives and variation. Of course there are also brilliant cheese shops in London with a wide range of good quality cheese. Just not in my neighbourhood.
Please find a Dutch webpage for the Ed Boele cheese shop, and also a Facebook profile for more information. I have never in my relatively long life experienced a better cheese shop. This is the pure love of good quality and taste! Remember also, that cheese bites are always super good as an LCHF snack on-the-go as long as you don’t choose the ones that comes with a strong odour.
