Blauw 070: Indonesian Flavors in The Hague
Blauw 070 is a modern Indonesian restaurant in The Hague with delicious and intense flavored dishes that you don’t want to miss!
I still remember myself jumping in the car while my granddad explained during the trip that ‘the only place you can get real Indonesian food is in The Hague’. The Hague houses a large population that has their roots in Indonesia and besides a great multi cultural atmosphere the other huge benefit are the great Indonesian restaurants. And one of the best to visit is Blauw 070.
A great benefit of this restaurant is that the menu won’t give you much decision stress. Choose the rijsttafel and your table will be packed with all those cute little bowls. The smell will overwhelm you and you can taste a lot of different things! The dishes were all full of intense flavor and very colorful. You will have fish, meat and vegetarian dishes that range from sweet to hot. If you have personal preferences please tell them because they are more than willing to take it into account.
You wouldn’t like to miss the Nasi Goreng with Sambal Goreng Kentang. I can hear you think: from all dishes on the table I should not mis the rice?! Yes, don’t miss it because even the rice is very delicious here! However you should experience the full table yourself there are a few dishes I would recommend you: Sate Kambing made of lam, Daging Pedas where the cinnamon gives an vibrant touch and the mango desert.
Blauw 070’s Interior
One of the things you will immediately notice at this restaurant is the red instead of blue interior. However they say it has a playful reason red is also the color of luck and happiness. And with a blue meal the Dutch refer to an Indonesian meal. No matter what the reason is, it works: everyone talks about the colors and it’s something people remember.
The interior itself is unlike most Indonesian restaurants modern and I personally love the big family picture on the wall in the middle of the restaurant. The combination gives you the feeling of today’s luxury and traditional food and passion.
During summertime you can sit on their cosy terrace at the back of the restaurant. And however there are plenty of reasons to recommend you to visit this great restaurant, it is possible to order and have it delivered at home.
Whether you want to celebrate something with family or friends or have a great meal with your love after a lang working week, this hidden gem is a great idea! Selamat Makan!
