The true The Hagues one: Watch the Dutch word "LEKKER"!
Most people do speak the standard-Dutch, although a kind of dialect (slang) is characteristic to any area in the Netherlands. Especially Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht became the dialect-city where the city dialects of Zuid Holland, included The Hague & Rotterdam, got judged negatively. Because the social status of rich and poor were so evident.
The Dutch word "LEKKER" mainly means "nice". Not a dialect, just to emphasize something. Though to ALL what makes your feeling "nice", we yell "LEKKER!".
So for food, drinks, emotions, girls, hunks, sport, shopping, sleep etc. we say "LEKKER". Even with sale the prices are ... yes, LEKKER
