Bitterfortunes



A favourite Dutch bar snack of locals and expats alike are bitterballen. But when explaining what exactly it is to a foreigner, you realise... it’s a bit of a mystery. Much like life.


We wanted to remove the mystery from these little balls of magic, while also removing some of the mystery of life, with a very Dutch tribute to the fortune cookie. With fortunes delivered in a very direct, Dutch way.




We piloted a launch of these deep-fried delights with a Chinese New Year collaboration with Zoku Amsterdam — hotel and international cultural space.
