The Spaanse Moeder is an affordable, farm-to-table restaurant in the Hague that is operated by a mother and her two sons. The family prepares everything in their own kitchen from chips to stocks to toppings. They offer a variety of Spanish dishes, including vegetarian and vegan options. Their ingredients are fresh and come from local farmers around The Hague.
This restaurant follows two main principles: "slow is the new fast" and "from farm to table." The idea behind the "slow is the new fast" is that everything is produced by the family, avoiding mass production. The goal of the restaurant is to prepare healthy food, on a small scale that is environmentally friendly. Their second motto "from farm to table" further develops their small-scale approach. All of their products are fresh and come from nearby farms. Once the produce arrives in the kitchen, the restaurant does not use large scale machinery. Rather, they make everything by hand.
