The Dutch lack a haute cuisine of their own and consequently rely on the rest of the world for tasty food. Utrecht is no exception and it offers a wide array of ethnic restaurants and eateries for all palates. It is, however, also known for its pubs where you can devour a steak for only €10. Of course, in a student town like Utrecht you can still eat on the cheap, but the past few years have given rise to a new trend: exclusive, upmarket restaurants. Drieharingenstraat is the place to go for a culinary treat.If you'd like to dine in style on quality food for affordable prices you won’t be disappointed. This is the Netherlands, after all, where people demand the best for the smallest price possible.
