When you stand in front of this delicacy store you imagine yourself in Italy for a moment. Once inside, the delicious smells of a variety of delicacies reach you. From jars full of pesto and tapenade to filled vegetables and spinach tarts. They spend all day in the kitchen here. Everything is homemade and you can taste that. Around lunchtime, you may find the queue all the way outside. And for a good reason, because here you get the best Italian sandwiches in town. They are richly topped with all kinds of specialities from the counter.

Mr. Dam

When you think of a Vietnamese lunch you immediately think of noodles or an egg roll. But also in Vietnam, just like in the Netherlands, they sometimes lunch with a sandwich. Not a sandwich with cheese, but a so-called banh mi. A crispy sandwich filled with meat, chicken or tofu. Add lettuce and sauce and for the lover, some spice and herbs and you have an ideal lunch to go.

In China, you can find delicious street food on every street corner. But in Groningen, we are also big fans of street food. At MOONG you can snack at a high-quality level. A quick, cheap, but also healthy snack to take away. Go for a bubble tea or choose a Jian Bing. A type of crepe made from eggs, filled with all kinds of savoury goodness.

Funky Freak

The sweet tooth will be at the right place here. Funky Freak is also worth a visit for its interior design. It actually looks like everything is drawn. With the black lines on the white interior, you imagine yourself in a drawing. Everything is black and white except for the artsy freak shakes. Go for one of those happy freak shakes or choose a crepe or waffle. Not really a lover of sweet? They also serve savoury sandwiches and all kinds of coffee.
