Gezellig Gezelligheid

Gezellig Gezelligheid


Posted on Jul 30, 2014

Gezellig is a Dutch word that has no exact English translation. It can mean cosy, warm, friendly, comfortable, relaxing, enjoyable, gregarious and a range of other feel-good things. It’s the word you’ll hear most often in the Netherlands and embodies the heart of Dutch culture – being happy, having fun, feeling joyful and enjoying good feelings, times, things, people… Thanks to you, our patrons, Dutchies is filled with gezellig gezelligheid all the time. Whether it be on our Thursday night quiz evenings, the monthly live music, the Indonesian Rijsttafel or a quiet meal on the terrace contemplating Grotto beach – Dutchies is always ‘gezellig’. Thank you for helping us infuse Dutchies with this much valued Dutch spirit of warmth and togetherness. One thing for sure is it has certainly kept us all warm through the winter! We’re looking forward to the last of our Quiz nights tomorrow and to getting back to our usual hours from the 1st of August. The sun is rising earlier and earlier, Spring is on the horizon and there are many more days (and nights) of ‘gezelligheid’ to be had with you at Dutchies. Tot siens!...

Selamat makan It’s time for our Indonesian Rijsttafel again! Come and experience the myriad of tastes Indonesian food has to offer and experience or on Friday 8th August 2014. We’ll be serving a selection of Indonesian dishes for you to enjoy with friends. Gado Gado is one of the dishes often found on an Indonesian Rijsttafel. It’s a warm vegetable salad, served with crushed shrimp crackers (krupuk) and boiled eggs. The salad can have a range of vegetables with the more traditional ingredients being cabbage, sprouts, arrots and green beans. In Indonesian “gado-gado’ means mix-mix – which is exactly what it is. Gado-Gado is very similar to ‘karedok’ but is different in that the vegetables aren’t raw but slightly boiled. The sauce is also not a traditional ‘satay’ peanut sauce. It’s a spice up one with chillies added. Selamat makan Looking forward to seeing you there! R210 per person. Booking essential. Make a Reservation  ...
