I'm Dutch, and in Holland you can find every place imaginable :P if the food corresponds to the original recipies is a whole other story but there really are a lot of different places you can go to. In France *where I've been living for 5 years now* not so much.. I've seen Italian places, here and there some Chinese but not much. But then again, I live in the country so I don't know what it's like in bigger cities.

I'm really curious what kind of image you people have of Holland and/or France

here in brisbane we have all kinds of restaurants. Just within a 5 minute drive we have thai, chinese, indian, middle eastern and a greek restaurant. The most common though are chinese.

Vida - chips are basically fries but fatter :) mcdonalds still call their chips fries and they are the skinny ones. Oh, and we drink coffee too ;)

We don't have a whole lot of mexican restaurants around but that's ok because I make mean mexican food I make a chilli that will knock your socks off *mmmm* hungry now

I used to live in a town in Michigan that had a large Dutch population. They were almost all blond blue eyed and very friendly. They were very family oriented and a little clanish. When I think of Holland I think of windmills and tulips
I try not to think of France.

Jazzy- I checked our local grocery store, no lamb. I'm sure they have it in the larger citys though

Why do you try not to think of France? :P

Haha, there's not thát much windmills and tulips in Holland as people tend to think Well of course there's regions where there are but honestly, I've lived there until I was 12 and I think I must've seen like what.. 10 windmills? same for the tulips, never saw an inhumane quantity of them, except in books xD

Hi there Bitless, hey don't forget Fish and Chips..lol
I am also from New Zealand. There is the nicest mexican place in Christchurch. Very yummy! I'd say we have a mix of most food. Chinese being very common, and tasty. Most Fish n chip shops double as a Chinese takeaway. We have a pretty good indian restaurant where I am and a Japanese place too. We of course have Burger King, Mc Donalds and KFC.

Chips are usually med thickness and straight cut. Just to make it confusing I also call the cold ones chips
Of course sometimes I use the phrase "hot chips". All depends on the context. Don't really get fish n chips much as they aren't that healthy lol.

I like making things like nachos and burritos at home. Yum yum!
Absolutely luuve bagels too!
