* '''Raw herring''' (''haring''), which is actually cured in salt. It's available both from ubiquitous herring stands and fancy restaurants, usually served with chopped onion and occasionally even plopped into a bun to make ''broodje haring''. New herrings (''Hollandse Nieuwe'') is a special treat available around June.

* '''Pea soup''' (''erwtensoep'' or ''snert''), made of green peas and smoked sausage.  Can be very hearty and a meal itself if there are enough potatoes and other veggies mixed in.

* '''Kroket''' (a round roll of ragout covered in breadcrumbs and deep-fried), is the most typical Dutch street snack. You can buy them at any snackbar or ''frituur'' and at several places you can buy them from a vending machine built in the wall. Also served with French fries (which you should try with mayonnaise!) on the side as a regular street meal (''friet met met een kroket'').
