Ward KustersWard Kusters
After finishing his culinary education, chef Ward Kusters took on a temporary dishwasher job where he met his current partners, sommeliers Lieke Vos and Jeroen van Esch. After this, Ward worked at several high-end restaurants, like De Kristalijn in Belgium and Pure C. In 2018 Ward opened his very own establishment, restaurant Hunker. Here, Ward rules the kitchen, and every dish is perfectly paired by sommeliers Jeroen van Esch & Lieke Vos.
Modern Dutch cuisine
The interior is modern and warm with a chic touch, which makes a good representation of the restaurant’s menu. Get ready to be taken on a culinary journey and taste the best contemporary Dutch cuisine by the young ambitious team of restaurant Hunker.
Ward Kusters continues to develop his cooking style throughout his career, and he does not wish to confine himself to one specific routine. As a result, he does not consider himself bound to one specific kitchen. He combines traditional Dutch cuisine with international influences and creates excellent new flavour pairings. Artistically, he draws inspiration from the seasonal offerings for a culinary, striking, and mouth-watering creations. Through this, he creates a fresh, light and modern cuisine with surprising depth. In Ward's opinion, the flavours do not stand alone, but should always complement each other in perfect harmony.
Hunker restaurant is located in the center of Sittard's old town. Within walking distance you will find the historic city wall, the picturesque Market, and many beautiful "secret" city gardens of Fort Sanderbout. One of those gardens provides the restaurant with fresh herbs and flowers.
