About Live Cooking

Live Cooking

Live Cooking Sassenheim has become a household name in the region! In our Live Cooking Buffet restaurant, your dishes are freshly prepared and you decide what you want to eat. In addition to a wide choice of starters, main courses and desserts, you will find a variety of “snacks & salads” from home and abroad. You can also choose from a varied selection of home-baked breads and regional dishes.

The Live Cooking buffet will be open again from Saturday 13 November 2021, for the time being only on Saturdays. Of course we would like to welcome you for a pleasant evening with friends and/or family! Of course, fun supervised children's activities are again organized in the World Eaters Kids corner.
