Where to eat in Utrecht

My hometown, Utrecht. A beautiful city I love and lived in for the last 21 years. We’ve been out for dinner so many times here, that a list of places to eat in Utrecht isn’t difficult to make. Just don’t expect it to be short!

Options to eat in Utrecht

Utrecht being a city with a university, science park and several colleges makes for a lively restaurant scene, with inexpensive options to eat. The restaurants on this list vary from cheap eats to more expensive. I’ve divided them up in sections of Utrecht.

Lunetten

The neighbourhood I’m calling home since 2004. It feels like living in a village, while still being part of and close to the city. There are several options with good food in Lunetten.

Mister Shi

A wok restaurant with an all you can eat buffet. They also have a snackbar, where you can get take away chinese, fries and snacks.

To show the starter at Mister Shi. Eat in Utrecht
lamb as a starter

We like to go to the all you can eat buffet (2,5 hours) from Mister Shi and pick our choice for stir fry. You give the veggies, meat and/or fish and pick a sauce and they stir fry it for you. You can choose from over 30 options for stir fry. Next to that there’s a buffet with lots of options to choose from like babi pangang, foo yong hai, lychees, etc.

Savory tray from the high tea

A restaurants in the woods. Het Oude Tolhuys has a lovely terrace, which is perfect for tea and reading a book. We had a high tea once for Paul’s Birthday, we’ve been here for Mothers day and just because. We love this restaurant in the forest.

Anafora

We’ve sat on a the terrace of Anafora a few times, while Yuri played with a friend in the adjoining playground ‘Boschspeeltuin’. It was lovely to sit on the crowded terrace. We love coming here and have a drink and bite and a large playground for Yuri to run around at.

      Yes, plenty of choices and that cheesecake was delicious. Chips in a cone is indeed the Belgium way, but some snackbars in The Netherlands serve it also that way.
