RAK - Tilburg
RAK is a restaurant at the harbor of Tilburg, which is called the Piushaven (check that area out anyways, it’s really nice). RAK is literally located on the water, making it a wonderful location to visit. If you’re eating inside you’re floating on the water and on the big terrace outside you’ll overlook the water. The interior has hints of soft pink, green and dark-blue and wouldn’t misfit in a hip neighbourhood in London. For lunch RAK serves sandwiches, salads and soft shell taco’s and the dishes for dinner vary from bavette to mussels.

BURGUNDIAN BRABANT There’s a good reason why Brabant is known for its Burgundian lifestyle. Brabant has numerous locations where large groups can sample regional dishes and specialities at an affordable price. Brabant was European Region of Gastronomy in 2018 and has 20 Michelinstars in 2019! The region is famous for its strawberries, asparagus and the locally brewed Trappist beer. La Trappe is the oldest Trappist beer brewed in the Netherlands. Local produce such as asparagus, strawberries and other types of fruit, cheese and meat can be bought at markets and direct from the farmers. You can see that the people of Brabant enjoy good eating by the rise of trendy food halls in in Eindhoven, Breda and 's-Hertogenbosch, definitely worth a visit if you’re in the neighbourhood. Something else not to miss are the food festivals in Brabant. Every week there will be an event somewhere where you can enjoy the most delicious dishes, often served from an original ‘food truck’. Bon appetit!
