Even though Dutch food will not be special for the Dutch people, there are a number of typical Dutch food items which are unknown to expatriates.

Visiting the Netherlands as a highly skilled migrant is the perfect opportunity to taste Dutch snacks/dishes. Examples are tompoucen (cream slices), erwtensoep (pea soup), drop (licorice candy), stroopwafels (syrup waffles), hagelslag (chocolate sprinkles), kroketten (croquettes), boerenkool (kale), kaassoufflé (cheese soufflé), oliebollen (Dutch donuts), poffertjes (mini pancakes) and haring met uitjes (salted herring with onions).

Try and enjoy these Dutch delights!
