There is no measurement of the best beer, the best dish etc.

Heineken is the best dutch beer as much as Guinness is the best irish beer. Some people prefer, Murphy's over Guinness, some people prefer Grolsch over Heineken...

I guess that's what makes it fun - go to a different place and try out stuff they make here, right?

Hi there.

Hertog Jan has very tasteful flavour.....

And, by the way, try Cafe In De Wildeman, they have somehwat 15 beers as a draft, and somewhat 200 or so by the bottle, amongst wich are somewhat 20 dutch ones.

Don't get drunk...... ;-)
