    Just no.
    ‘Friet culture’, ....right. Would you like a double vanilla latte with that?

      Put some sambal setan on it and you'll never taste the fries at all

      • Ok the setan (satan) sounds like something to try. How much hotter than oelek is it?

          Oelek is not hot at all, there is mayonnaise out there with more bite than oelek.

            Gledek or Setan is probably the hottest you can find somewhat regularly in stores, though probably more likely in tokos. Some Surinamese sambals using madame jeanettes might be hotter, but also harder to find.

            • The problem with some regular sambal is that if you use it for some time you need enormous quantities to have the "spicy hot" effect to the point the taste ruins the meal. They're also a bit too sweet.

              For example, you can put some of the more regular sambal on a peanut butter sandwich. But after some time the spicy effect becomes less and you get a peanut butter sandwich with sambal taste without spicyness.

                You could also buy some Surinamese 'Faja Lobi Pindakaas Trafasie', equally good on bread or as a base for peanut sauce...

                • Re peanut sauce. A lot of peanut sauces are too sweet. I had a Moluccan gf. Her mom's peanut sauce was spicier and less sweet.

                          I think having a Dutch driver in F1 caused a slight peak in interest for F1, some are even suggesting fixing up Zandvoort and bringing F1 back to NL. I don’t see that one happening any time soon though.

                                There are some good Goudas here. You just have to chose the more expensive one havened ripened longer. I like them old, dry and already getting orangy.

                                Bitterballen! I also love them was once persuaded by a takeaway guy to try them - so nice. Though I still don't know how tehy make them - still fluid on the inside and a crispy crust on the outside.

                                The FEBO outlets - I also can't pass by one without having something
