Throughout the entire month of February, I had constantly been craving some real Mexican food. Having just moved from Los Angeles, a place with a robust Mexican community and countless authentic Mexican restaurants, I am quite accustomed to high quality Mexican cuisine. So, I sought...to find a Mexican restaurant here in the Netherlands that paralleled some of my hometown favorites. KUA Mexican Kitchen, a Mexican restaurant located near the city center of the Hague, met this mark. With restaurants still closed for in person dining, my family and I ordered take out from Kua. The website was quite easy to navigate and offered a fairly normal sized number of dishes. While Kua does offer delivery services, these services are mostly confined to Hague city-dwellers since they deliver food only via bike. Since I live in Wassenaar, what would be a 40 minute bike ride for a delivery person, we had to drive down to the Hague to pick up our meal. When we arrived at the restaurant, the food was hot and ready to go. Now, one of my biggest concerns with ordering takeout, a concern I have expressed in previous articles, is the effect of transportation time on the warmth of the food. For this meal, I was particularly worried since it would be a 20 minute car ride from the restaurant to my home. However, when we started unboxing the food after arriving at my home, these concerns melted away. With each opened box came a torrent of warm steam, indicative of the dish’s temperature. Furthermore, the restaurant had included a little sheet of paper offering advice on how to heat up each specific dish, should the dish get cold. In total, I ordered three small appetizers and a main course. The first appetizer I ordered was chips and guacamole. This dish was excellent! The guacamole was not only seasoned to perfection, but it boasted a delicious citrusy tang. Both elements combined together effortlessly, creating a wonderful cohesion of flavors. In addition, the chips were both crispy and warm. The second appetizer I ordered was the sopes, a traditional Mexican dish that consists of a fried masa base with a variety of savory toppings. These sopes were topped with refried beans, lettuce, and avocados. I’m not sure if I have ever had sopes before, but these were quite tasty. I particularly enjoyed the soft texture of the refried beans in conjunction with the crunchier corn base and lettuce. The last appetizer of the night was elote, or street style corn on the cob. This dish consisted of corn on the cob with a creamy sauce made of mayonnaise, parmesan cheese, sweet chili powder, and lime. This proved to be yet another delicious dish. The natural sweetness of the corn juxtaposed with the citrusy tang of the line created yet another wonderful combination of flavors. The chili powder added another layer of spice and seasoning that really brought the whole dish together. Lastly, for my main course, I ordered a classic Mexican dish: chicken enchiladas. These enchiladas were soft and cheesy, and came with a spicy salsa verde. The salsa verde was a wise addition, giving the dish a bit of kick. Overall, I enjoyed this dish. This authentic Mexican meal achieved my goal of quenching a month-long hankering for real Mexican food. Each dish brought to the table a unique combination of rich and authentic flavors that made my dining experience quite enjoyable. If anyone is interested in real Mexican cuisine here in the Netherlands, Kua Mexican Kitchen is the place for you!More

Great food and drinks! Start it off with a Margarita! Afterwards, if you are a vegeterian order the Cactus Steak it was great!! my couple and I come here every month before Covid happened and we highly recommend eating here.

Kua is traditional mexican food but I think it is a little overrated. The dishes have fresh ingredients and the restaurant has friendly service and great ambiance, which makes it a nice place. However, in the three times I've been there, I've noticed that the...food is kind of bland. The ingredients loose their flavor or are overcooked. Portions are not very big, and overall, my friends, family and I have never left saying "WOW!".More

Kua’s authentic Mexican food (not Tex-Mex) filled a void for us when we moved from the US to Den Haag. We were really missing our local Mexican restaurant, El Bajio, where we ate almost every week. Kua’s food is all homemade, some spicy and some...not as spicy. The homemade tortilla chips and guacamole are a “must” for a starter. The margaritas are tasty and we’ve loved trying different items on the menu. The ladies are very friendly and make us feel welcome, even during these unusual times when we are limited to carryout or delivery. We place our order in person, take a short walk, and our food is always ready when we return. Gracias!More

Very friendly, constantly smiling and good service. The waitress was very happy and was helping us in anyway she could. She did a great job! The food on the other hand was ‘okay’. The pollo wraps were good but nothing special. The vegan wraps with...grilled vegetables were a bit plain, not really tasty and a bit of a boring dish.More

Lots of choice on the menu and friendly service. We were able to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine over dinner. Good vegetarian options are available. Good portions. The only negative that we could think of, was they were out of churros.....

We made a booking in advance and were given an option to sit either outside or inside despite the restaurant being quite busy. The food and drinks were delicious and the service was superb, with a big smile on their faces! Thank you.

In the ‘early days’ my experience of eating at Kua was positive. However, my latest visit was so disappointing. The flavors of the dishes were flat, whereas the Mexican kitchen should be full of contrasting flavors. I am not recommending this restaurant (anymore 😑), no...value for money.More
