If you’re in town with your mom, you’re going to want to get a reservation at Moeders. The place is a shrine to mothers (complete with all kinds of photos of them on the walls) and a necessary intro to traditional Dutch comfort food, like stampot, the Netherlands’ national dish. Theirs features a mound of potatoes mashed with other vegetables like sauerkraut or kale, then ringed by sausage, bacon, and a meatball, before a swimming pool of gravy is finally poured into the center. You’ll want to wait for a chilly day to eat this (you won’t be waiting long), and if your mom happens to be with you on her birthday or on Mother’s Day, you might even get something special for the table.
