CAFÉ SJIEK – LIMBURGIAN
Because we are, of course, still in the city of Maastricht, we will start with a well-known restaurant among the locals: Café Sjiek! Home of the only restaurant in Maastricht that serves the famous Limburgian dish called zuurvlees in a traditional way, made with horse meat. Café Sjiek also has its own beer and wine called Sjiek Thoesbeer and Sjiek Huiswijn (Chardonnay), both made locally in Limburg.
LA BODEGA – SPANISH
If you are looking for Spanish tapas, sangria’s and cervezas, this is the place to be. La Bodega serves a wide variety of food and lots of the ingredients are transported directly from Spain. One of the advantages of the menu is that you can choose the size of your portions. Adjust the portion to the number of friends you bring, or simply order a big portion of whatever you love for yourself. They also have an extensive wine menu with wines from all over Spain.
