Bilal Al Mashta
Delft, a canal-ringed city in the western Netherlands, has two major claims to fame. One: it’s an important cultural and historical centre. And two: it’s an emerging eating and drinking hotspot, thanks to the efforts of people like Bilal Al Mashta. A graphic designer, partner in one of the city’s most popular vegetarian joints and a soon-to-be-published author – Coulis, a book about Algerian food and art, is out soon – Al Mashta is an ideal guide to one of the Netherlands’ most exciting food scenes.
