Italian at its best. At least, that's what the reviews of this Italian deli tell us. La Semolina, located at De Stadspoort, excels in pasta: tagliatelle, spaghetti, ravioli, maccheroni, fiori, fusilli; we could go on like this for a while, and we haven't talked about their sauces yet. Complete your Italian evening with salads, cheeses, antipasti, spreads, or desserts (tiramisu!). Or opt for all of them during your Christmas diner!
Are you a fan of cheese? So is Jokkmokk at Tongelresestraat! They're always on the hunt for new cheeses, preferably local, despite their Swedish name. But that doesn't mean they're not passionate about a French stinker from time to time. There's a lot to choose from: young, old, raw milk; ideal for a cheese board for a festive evening..
Ui & Knoflook
For a truly festive meal, all you need are two key ingredients: onions and garlic. Well, they're almost in every dish. Make sure to check out Ui & Knoflook (Dutch for Onion & Garlic) on Frederiklaan! From the weekly menu full of fresh meals to delightful snacks for your charcuterie board, there's something to satisfy every craving. Our taste buds are already tingling with anticipation!
When you’re in De Bergen, make sure to stop by Bob's Traiteur. This deli is a candy store for foodies. A high-quality selection of Spanish hams, fine charcuterie, and outstanding cheeses. For a beautiful matching wine, they offer the best advice as well. Can't wait until you get home? Treat yourself to one of their divine sandwiches. You deserved it!
Since 1985, 't Kaaswinkeltje at Aalsterweg has been a go-to for many locals from all over the city, and not only for cheese. Could you use some help assembling your snack platter? Now you know where to go for olives, spreads, salads, roasted nuts, cheese, and wine selected by renowned wine expert Henri Bloem!
Are you looking for ready-made meals that only need a beep in the microwave? Or for freshly cut meat as a snack? Then Slagerij Beerens (butcher shop) might be the right spot for you. Besides smoked hams and other cured meats, they've got a great list of tapas boards, appetizers, and a range of buffets. They’ll make sure you know they’re an award-winning butcher!
Vershal het Veem
At Vershal het Veem you will find everything in one place: cheese, wine, Italian delicacies, sweets, and spices. We can't make it any easier! To keep it short and simple, we share a list of entrepreneurs for treats: Vleesrokerij Ad Reinders, Che Bonta Mercato Italiano, Wine & Nuts, Jardin D'olive, and Hicham.
Everybody knows nuts are indispensable when it comes to snacking. At least, if you're not allergic to them. When strolling around Kruisstraat, the smell of these roasted goodies will welcome you. Crunchy nuts, sugar peanuts, roasted cashews, pistachios, smoked almonds, all of the best quality. Does your inner sweet tooth also crave something? Then score their homemade nougat in a variety of flavors!
KURK organic wines
What's a festivity without wine? Nothing, if you'd ask us! In Woensel-West on the Edisonstraat, you will find KURK, a shop specialized in organic wines. From classics to newfound favorites, owner Esther has something in store for everyone.
Also highly recommended: the Turkish supermarket Öztürk at Sint Petrus Canisiuslaan. Is this your first time visiting? Be warned! Once you arrive at the deli counter, you will want to try everything. We repeat: EVERYTHING! Nobody can resist their fresh hummus, tzatziki, or peppadew spread. And nobody should.
