As a part of this easing, café terraces can be open from 12 PM to six PM. Now, what normally goes effectively with a biertje within the solar? Bitterballen after all! But it surely appears Rutte doesn’t need the nation to begin having fun with these simply but — and Dutchies are getting pressed. 

Why come for the bitterballen

The reasoning behind Rutte’s controversial assertion isn’t fairly identified. Based on RTL Nieuws, it could be as a result of the prime minister believes bitterballen are solely eaten after 6 PM and therefore, the Netherlands can not take pleasure in them but.
