The Hague 3. 'T Hof van Eten

This is one of the restaurants of the 'court quarter' it's name is a word 'joke' which is lost in English. The suburb is called 'court quarter', the name of the restaurant is 'The Court of Eating'. In Dutch a 'hof' also means garden. So I could also read 'garden of eating' where it has a link with the garden of Eden. You can see the advertisement a woman with an apple and a snake, a double 'word-game'.

The street where it is taken:

Too bad when word play doesn't translate!
