Food, drinks & nightlife
After 1945, many people left Indonesia with pain in their hearts and settled in The Hague. Many people with Indonesian roots still live in The Hague. That explains why you will find so many Indonesian restaurants here. And in The Hague are also most of the toko's in the Netherlands. Even a vegetarian one!
We asked the residents of The Hague about their favorite Indonesian restaurants and toko's and listed them here for you. The inhabitants have taste!
