Solid Turkish dishes in Amsterdam: Restaurant Ali Ocakbaşı (19. May 2017)

It is quite some while ago since I’ve paid a visit to a Turkish restaurant but given my friend wanted to try it I wouldn’t see a reason why not to. So we began with a variety of different starters like “Köpoglu (small cubes of fried eggplant, potatoes and green capsicum (pepper) served with special […]

Promising but for sure better if you go for the actual menu: Restaurant De Vrienden van Jacob @ Landgoed Duin & Kruidberg (18. May 2017)

Promising but for sure better if you go for the actual menu: Restaurant De Vrienden van Jacob @ Landgoed Duin & Kruidberg (18. May 2017)

The “Restaurant De Vrienden van Jacob” has one Michelin star so my expectations were relatively high. And they were kind of not really fulfilled – especially as when the dinner started, we were seated in a separate room and not in the main restaurant but at least the dinner started promising with “cod fish, marinated […]

Definitely not an appealing location but surprisingly good food: Grand Café Valerius (17. May 2017)

Definitely not an appealing location but surprisingly good food: Grand Café Valerius (17. May 2017)

Given we had had already several meals in the Landgoed, it was time to try something new. So we walked about 1.5 kilometers from the Landgoed and were – let’s say – ‘surprised’. There was some “bread with aioli” already on the table which was great given we were about to starve. But frankly, when […]

When you don’t feel any of the influence of the 1 star Michelin restaurant in the same house: Brasserie & Loungebar DenK @ Landgoed Duin & Kruidberg (16. May 2017)

When you’re seated in the Brasserie & Loungebar DenK, you will find some bread and butter right when you are seated already prepared at the table. Which is pretty nice as you have to be a bit patient until the next courses are served. The waiters were very friendly and helpful and made sure that […]

Decent food in a lovely manor: Seminar Rooms @ Landgoed Duin & Kruidberg (15. – 19. May 2017)

Decent food in a lovely manor: Seminar Rooms @ Landgoed Duin & Kruidberg (15. – 19. May 2017)

During a one week training I got to try various versions of lunch servings at the Landgoed Duin & Kruidberg. Overall, the dishes are quite fine as you get offered quite a variety of different things but they were not really anything special. I mean, functional, tasted well, but definitely not in the area I […]

Lovely restaurant with surprisingly good dishes: Restaurant Le Garage (14. May 2017)

Lovely restaurant with surprisingly good dishes: Restaurant Le Garage (14. May 2017)

I was wondering why the restaurant ‘Le Garage’ was called that way when I learned the next morning that the restaurant was originally started in a garage, it started to make sense. However, nowadays, it doesn’t look anything like a garage anymore. I went for the “Formula II Menu” (EUR 37.50) which is basically a […]

Fine breakfast: Restaurant My Place @ Element Amsterdam (16. October 2016)

Fine breakfast: Restaurant My Place @ Element Amsterdam (16. October 2016)

The breakfast selection at the Restaurant My Place at the Element Amsterdam is rather limited and it is very much self-service oriented. Something I am not used to from SPG hotels. However, after the second day you are kind of used to it, so it is fine. You have to get everything, plate including knife […]

Nice audience but mediocre DJ: Jimmy Woo Club (15. October 2016)

Nice audience but mediocre DJ: Jimmy Woo Club (15. October 2016)

According to one of my friends who used to go out in Amsterdam quite often, Jimmy Woo was the place to be. Well, turns out that this is maybe not so true anymore. It was already not really easy to get in as apparently it is still perceived as this fancy good club but after […]
