In April 2018 Par Hasard opened their doors in Almere. Located on the Belfort, the restaurant square of Almere.
It’s the first franchise of this concept that has been proven successful in Amsterdam. Richard, the franchisee, has been the chef in Amsterdam for over three years, before opening his own Par Hasard.
The atmosphere is that of a Belgian ‘frietkot’ combined with that of a eatery. Par Hasard has a nice menu, with starters and main courses. Most products are homemade, and that reflects in the taste. The fries are fresh as are their sauces and side dishes.
Special wishes? No problem for Richard. If possible he will accomodate you.
We always enjoy eating at Par Hasard. Service is friendly and professional and fits the cafe feeling of the place. We enjoyed the small sole fish, the satay, the hamburger, the chicken, the fish and chips and of course the ‘zoervleisj’.
You are also welcome for just a drink, or a few. We are sure you will order some nice snacks to go along.

A popular spot for food-drinks.info to relax is G’vine (George’s Vineyard) in Almere. We frequent this place to enjoy some of the great wines, beers or gin tonics served by George.
George opened G’vine in Juni 2016 and managed to get a nice group of loyal customers. That combined with the occasional visitors and tourist makes it a nice mix.
Besides a drink you can also have a snack at G’vine. They serve the famous Dutch ‘bitterballen’ from De Bourgondier, make a mean set of pinchos or you order a cheese or meat platter. All combinations are possible. Another option is to get something from the surrounding restaurants of Belfort to be served at G’vine.
Inside you can sit at the bar, at the bar tables, the lounge chairs or in one of the cozy corners in the back. Outside there is a nice terrace on the Belfort.
Often on Fridays and Saturdays G’vine offers live music and throughout the year there are various events scheduled such as wine or beer tastings.
Maybe we see each other at G’vine!

Earlier food-drinks.info informed you that Lou street food bar is opening on August 11 in Almere. We promised you to report back after our visit.
Lou has a great variety of street food and an extensive choice of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. The interior has an industrial look and feel with plenty of seats. Outside you’ll find a big terrace where you can sit and relax under the big screens with heating and light.
When you visit Lou, for a drink, a snack or more, simply take a seat and a staff member will be with you soon to take your order.
Food-drinks.info visited with a company of three. We enjoyed a gin tonic, a Brugse Zot Dubbel (draft beer) and a Coca-Cola while making a choice from Lou’s food menu. We decided on the Taco’s Gamba’s, a Black Jack’s Hotdog (by Brandt & Levie) and the homemade fries with Beef Stew.
The food is very nice presented in real street food style, on cutting boards, grease proof paper and recycled (kraft) containers. Everything tasted great and fresh. We already decided to go back soon to have a go at one of their burgers made with Angus beef.
Lou is a welcome addition to the Almere eateries. Without any advertising they simply opened the door and started. The public of Almere is drawn to the place because of it’s location and the inviting look and feel. Of course the moderate prices are a big help too.
Food-drinks.info understands Lou will be open 7 days a week from 11.00 till 23.00 and in the near future on Fridays and Saturdays till 05.00.

Very close to our house is Wilma’s Place, located in a industrial/business zone very typical to Dutch cities. We have visited this place for the first time years ago. We were thinking about a place for a quick lunc and Wilma came to mind.
We sat at the terrace on a round, threelegged table that required some searching where we would be able to lean without tipping the table. Finaly we found a more or less stable position.
We both had the meatball sandwich. One dressed with salad, baby mushrooms, bean sprouts and peanut sauce. That was one of Wilma’s weekly specials. The other regular. Nice meatbals, with nice presentation and everything to taste. Good place for a quick lunch.
