Eat eco-friendly eel
Weduwe Harinxma is a great place to round off a day on the water. This restaurant only has seating for twenty and, as you might expect in a water sports village, serves mainly fish dishes.
You’ll find Weduwe Harinxma in a picturesque little building on Heeg’s main street. You get a good sense of the atmosphere of this former fishing village, which flourished with the eel trade between the 17th and 20th centuries, but you can taste it too. Pride of place on the menu is held by sustainably managed eel from Heegermeer Lake. For many years, the owners Linda and Dirk sailed around the world before founding their restaurant in 2009. The memories of their adventures decorate the walls.
Nice to know!
Eel is one the most expensive types of fish. This is due to its scarcity and that breeding, catching, cleaning, salting, smoking, filleting and processing eel involves skilled manual work.
