After carefully assessing which place in Schipol will give me a nice conclusion for a Dutch experience that’s not beer, I concluded that Grand Café Plaza was the best place to go. Since most places have their menus displayed outside, I managed to find that this place waves its country’s flag on special local items. Since it had one platter that I found most interesting compared to all the other places in the area, which mostly serves pastas or sandwiches, I decided to settle here for my final meal before my flight back home.
My last day in the Netherlands also coincided with my flight back home in the afternoon. When I arrived by train to Schipol airport, I made it my mission to find a place that serves haring. After scouring almost all the food places in Schipol Plaza, I learned that the place happened to be called Happy Seafood.
My fourth day in Wageningen coincided with the last day of the conference. That meant no dinner buffet and also meant I had to find some place for nourishment. I explored the town center near Wageningen University & Research with the help of Google Maps and found an interesting place called Restaurant Toledo. On the way, I passed by a truck that served haring, but knowing what I’m about to do, I decided to head straight to the restaurant.
I had been contemplating whether or not to write about this, since this is Inggo Noms… and not Inggo Zzzs…. While Chalet GEM had been primarily my home away from home in the Netherlands, I did find an excuse on why I should feature this place in my blog… after the cut.
As I explained in my latest Life Update, I needed to go to Wageningen, Netherlands to attend the International Conference ‘Water Science for Impact’ for work. As I wasn’t able to bring my Beloved photographer with me in this odyssey, I’ll use this post to preemptively apologize on the low quality of the images for the upcoming few posts.
Anyway, I stayed at Chalet GEM located at TopParken, a holiday wilderness park. The closest restaurant was De Kantine, or literally, “the cafeteria” located at said park just a very close walking distance from the chalet. My host recommended I eat there as soon as I settled down as the place closes at 8pm. Famished, I opted to take her recommendation rather than venturing to the nearest town centers, which was at least 2km away.
