Chinese restaurant Ho Me – budget places to eat at in Arnhem

At Chinese restaurant Ho-Me you can get a big plate of food starting from €6,50! I’m not even talking about soups or snacks, no… a big plate of food. The setting can’t be discribed as ‘cosy’ but that is not a bad thing. Located in the city center at the Koningstraat No. 22 it is easy accessible and the Chinese meals will make for a good start hen going a night out on the town.

Ratelband Haphoek – budget places to eat at in Arnhem

For organic French fries, you have to go to Ratelbands ‘Haphoek’. Here you can get delicious fries with all kinds of toppings. “Frietje Speciaal” and “Patatje Oorlog” are some of the typical Dutch fries toppings.

The Ratelband family is very known in Arnhem. This family have been selling fries for over 70 years. The family is also known in the Netherlands but this has to do more with the father of the one who owns the chips-shop now. Emiel Ratelband can often be found in the Dutch news because of his, let’s say, different lifestyle. Rescently he asked the court to legaly change his year of birth from 1949 to 1973. You may take one quess if the court agreed with this or not…

Back to the fries: they are the best you can get in Arnhem as many Arnhemmers know. Lots of time a line can be found in front of the ‘Haphoek’. Make sure you also get a frikandel or kroket otherwise your meal is not complete. You can find the ‘Haphoek’ at the Roggestraat 31 in the city center.
