About two years ago, Lazy Bear and I went to the center of Delft to meet up with Lazy Monkey (new Lazy friend!). Lazy Monkey was having a late dinner 21:00 at Djebena. He was sitting outside with a plate of gooey spinach and a pancake. He let us try it and we were sold! We also ordered a spinach (Hamli) dish for ourselves, even though we already had dinner.. But when you can eat good food, your stomach just opens up a secret pocket to fill in more delicious food.
That was the start of our East-African food relationship. Since then I have been there for about 5 times. The food is really delicious and tasty.
When you have ordered your dish, you will get your meat and veggies on a shared pancake dish with your eating companions. You can eat everything with your hand. Take a piece of pancake and grab some meat or veggie. I always want to eat the spinach dish, so I often order the 4 veggies surprise meal. The 4 meat surprise meal is also very nice. Some meats are a bit spicy.
In the photo you see Lazy Bear’s meat surprise dish and my veggie surprise dish. Sharing = more food tasting!
The pancake has little holes, because it is fermented. It also tastes a bit sour, but that matches really well with all the toppings.
They also offer a range of fruit beers. I tried all of them, and I like the coconut the best. The alcohol percentage is not very high, 3.7% to 7%. The mango juice is also really recommended. Mmmm…
The price for a dish and some drinks is about 20 euro p.p.
Too bad Djebena in Delft and Den Haag are both closed. (10 March 2019)
Tue-Sun 10:00-22:00? (there was no end time for Delft)
