The Dutch are some of the biggest consumers of cheese in the world, so you’d be mistaken if you thought all that’s available is a mild gouda that you might find at your local deli. You can sample Dutch cheese at the open-air markets, but for an experience where you can take your time and share with friends, Kaasbar offers a wide selection of local cheeses divided into white, red, hard, and blue types for a la carte sampling or as chef’s choice boards. Sprawl out on the outside terrace for prime people-watching or sit at the counter and choose off a conveyor belt. Each cheese comes with a paired garnish, so you could go with the Alphenaer with beef jerky and honey, Brabants Blauw with mejdool date and hazelnuts, or an aged option with cumin that’s paired with curry mayo and lemon zest. They also come with a suggested wine pairing and optional charcuterie add-ons, making Kaasbar perfect for the chronically indecisive or those who want to cap dinner elsewhere off with a proper cheese plate.
