Dungelmann in The Hague is where you'll find the best buns! The Dungelmann croquette and the bun with meatballs in particular have become a notion in The Hague. With its four locations, including a butchery, a caterer, a deli-counter and a luncheonette, Dungelmann offers you various places to get your delicacies. Midway the new shopping street at the Grote Marktstraat, you will find the Deli Counter of Dungelmann.
The carriage has long disappeared from the streets, but the old cargo bike in front of the Dungelmann butchery reminds us of the past. In 1861, Mr P.G. Dungelmann established the butcher’s shop by the same name. The butcher’s shop was at a special location, amidst the haute couture in the Hoogstraat. Dungelmann butchery is still located there. Customers from all walks of life came to Dungelmann’s to eat the famous and classic croquette. In the past, grabbing a croquette was not done by the chic residents of The Hague; that is why Dungelmann became so popular, also due to its location. Consequently, Dungelmann's croquette and meatballs are still a notion in The Hague.
