Some food is famous worldwide, like pizza and pasta, and often we get the question: what is typical Dutch food? Traditionally, Dutch cuisine is simple with vegetables, potatoes and meat or fish. Nowadays, mostly thanks to all the different nationalities in the Netherlands, we eat more cosmopolitan and 'exotic'. Italian and Asian food is especially popular, but our cuisine has been also influenced by the former Dutch colony of Indonesia. The Dutch even eat their French fries with peanut sauce! Or with a combination of mayonnaise and peanut sauce, called ‘patatje oorlog’ (French fries war). Some Indonesian food is so integrated into the Netherlands that a lot of people see nasi, bami and peanut sauce/satay sauce as typical Dutch food.
