Mexicanos en TU Delft
General advices

Now let’s get to the food advices. Nevertheless, as you will notice, it will be difficult to find real Mexican ingredients or food. In Delft there are stores (better known as Turkish shops) where you can find oriental food and some products that are difficult to find in normal super markets, like Mexican-like beans, chilies and even evaporated milk. The shops are located in Papsouwselaan.

When you buy milk check out that there are several types. There are not only whole and skimmed milk (volle/halv) but also karnemelk which is sourmilk (from Wikipedia: the liquid left behind after churning butter out of cream. It also refers to a range of fermented milk drinks, common in warm climates).

Aldi offers really cheap prices but quality is not the best. Jumbo is usually cheaper than Albert Heijn (with some exceptions).

Fruit and vegetables. In the local supermarkets they are usually expensive and its quality is bad compared to what we are used to, it is better to buy these things on the open market (thursdays and saturdays) you can get better quality and cheaper prices. Turkish shops are also another good option if you have one near.

You may find organic food in the city center near to ‘de Ruif’. Of course it is more expensive but if you are in a green mood it is up to you to pay a little extra :P

ADVISE: Try to cook at home and bring it to school, there are usually microwaves available. Not all faculties have cafeterias, and they are usually quite expensive. The largest one is Aula, but there is also a relatively large one in Architecture building.
