Our region has been called the pantry of the Netherlands for a long time. Beautiful warehouses and old factories on the banks of our river Zaan still recall those days. The love for 'food' has never gone away. The well-known Zaan mayonaise and mustard have been joined by delicacies including Zaanse sambal, in October we celebrate the Cacao month, each year a Food Festival is hosted at the Zaanbocht, we have the best cooking store in the world, our own local eigen breweries and our own chocolate factory.
Of course, these include special places where you can enjoy a good meal and a lovely drink. On Zaans.nl we host the top 5 favourite places the locals visit.
