Lunch in a shocking pink factory or dinner in the middle of a light show? In North Brabant, your meal becomes an experience that you will want to record. Because naturally flavour is important but let’s be honest: looks are critical as well. These nine photogenic food hotspots have a menu that makes you hungry and an interior that is camera-friendly.

1. The Streetfood Club, Breda

The old Grand Theatre in the city centre of Breda houses the equally theatrical Streetfood Club. You won’t believe your eyes when you enter! You will be dining in the midst of an exuberant explosion of colour. Bright pink walls, a jungle of plants and each corner is ‘quirky’. You needn’t feel guilty about keeping your phone on the table because this interior is just begging to be captured. And the dishes as well, with the choice including exotic brunch, lunch and dinner dishes that come from Mexico to Bangkok.

“The Streetfood Club regularly organises fun events. For example, an ‘A-Meezing Monday’ karaoke night or a ‘Bottomless Boozy Brunch’ with entertainment by the Drag Queens.” 

2. Dinner in Motion, Eindhoven

You may very well find the most unique restaurant in the Netherlands in the capital of design and light art. The Dinner in Motion in Eindhoven seats you in a 360-degree restaurant. You enjoy a culinary journey during a multi-course dinner and find yourself in the middle of a light show. The dishes and projections are coordinated in such a way that you become completely immersed in the story. This is a dinner experience that you will not forget quickly!

Combine this with:

3. Restaurant van Aken, 's-Hertogenbosch

  • Restaurant van Aken in 's-Hertogenbosch
  • Restaurant van Aken in 's-Hertogenbosch - borrelplank
  • Restaurant van Aken - Werkwarenhuis in 's-Hertogenbosch

Delicious food, a good story and a photogenic interior: every reason to pull up a chair at Restaurant Van Aken! The restaurant is located on the Tramkade – the cultural and culinary hotspot of ‘s-Hertogenbosch. The shocking pink interior and the urban jungle terrace will stop you in your tracks. Anticipate a menu with seasonal products, plenty of vegetarian options and a no-waste policy in a decor filled with design. Pull up your Piet Hein Eek chair and enjoy your meal served on Edwin Vollebergh’s narrative crockery.

4. De Kazerne, Eindhoven

You will find another photogenic food hotspot in a monumental warehouse in the centre of Eindhoven. In the open kitchen of De Kazerne restaurant, chef Giovanni Gabana conjures up Italian dishes with a modern touch and no frills – reason enough to reserve a table. But that’s not all. You lunch or dine here in the centre of an exhibition space, surrounded by works by great names and new talent in the world of design – with each piece linked to the Eindhoven region.

5. Holy Moly, Breda

  • Holy Moly Breda - cocktail bar
  • Holy Moly Breda - tafel vol eten
  • Holy Moly Breda - restaurant

Your senses are challenged during a meal at Holy Moly in the centre of Breda. A multi-course lunch or dinner of street food dishes is served in a surrealist world of luminous plants, a treehouse and a bird’s nest. By the time you go home, your phone will be filled with beautiful pictures of both the interior and the photogenic dishes. Tip: Make your dinner an excursion and book the Holy Moly Theatre Trip!

6. Thomas, Eindhoven

If you are not afraid of some colour, you can enter the flamboyant world of Thomas on Stratumseind, the entertainment street of Eindhoven. The restaurant is just as colourful as the ‘extremely tasty’ cocktails, nor does the menu lack for colour. With the iconic dinner trees, the stress of choosing is in the past, because you simply choose all of your favourite dishes. Tip: from November to January, it is possible to reserve a dinner dome at Thomas. A very photogenic restaurant experience can be enjoyed under the stars on the church square, at the foot of St. Catherine’s Church.

7. Villa la Vida, Tilburg

In the appealing Piushaven (Pius Harbour) in Tilburg, Villa la Vida provides a worldly mix of colours, cultures and tastes. The interior contains many beautiful prints and artistic creations. A stylish setting for enjoying good company in the afternoon or evening. The table is always filled by the cooks with delicious dishes that are meant to be shared. And don’t forget the photogenic cocktails!

8. Down Town Gourmet Market Eindhoven & Gourmet Market Central Station Tilburg

  • Down Town Gourmet Market - Vietnamama
  • Down Town Gourmet Market - tafels met mensen
  • Down Town Gourmet Market - bord met eten

In the centre of Eindhoven or Tilburg, you might think you are at a bustling food market in the country of your favourite holiday destination. The covered Gourmet Market in both cities is where cultures from around the world gather. You can choose here from dozens of food stalls from Japan and Spain to Mexico and Greece. What’s more, the food trucks are works of art to be admired. Choose whatever catches your fancy, find a table and enjoy the vibes and delicious flavours!
