Oh My Guts, Christmas Menu
Perhaps a little different because this is not your typical restaurant. Oh My Guts is a food delivery service where vegetables are the main ingredient. Freshly prepared, delicious, healthy ready-to-eat meals can be ordered at the touch of a button. For Christmas they have created a Christmas menu that is available from the 22nd of December via the website.

Good news, Oh My Guts delivers throughout the Netherlands!
