Special Wednesday

Next special Wednesday in De Mafkees will be on February 4th!!

Since winter did not really come this year, we guessed that it is our last chance to serve you some heavy classic Dutch winter food. So it will be “Boerenkool” (green cabbage and potatoes). Of course De Mafkees would not be De Mafkees if we would not add a international twist to it. We will add Spanish Chorizo, French Brie and Walnuts. Of course there will be also a Vegan version available.
