We value fresh food. We really, really do. So once we heard about restaurant de Kas in Amsterdam, we’ve put it high on our to-eat list and decided to make a reservation. This is what you should know about de Kas:
- The literal translation of de Kas stands for ‘the greenhouse’, you’re actually eating in a greenhouse. Which we love.
- All dishes are made with homegrown fruits and vegetables. You can taste the seasons over here!
- For the past two years de Kas has beaten restaurant de Librije (a three Michelin star restaurant) in being the best biological restaurant in the Netherlands.
- You’ll find de Kas in the middle of Park Frankendael, which guarantees an amazing view.
Given these four facts we simply just had to eat there. And so we did, last weekend.
KEEP THOSE TOMATOES COMING
Okay, so our expectations were high, to be honest. But that we would get to eat such a delicious six course diner, that was beyond imagination. Before even getting to the first course, we were treated with all kinds of delicious bites. Think about eatable flowers with beans and sesame cream. Or tiny little knolls with piccalilli and poppyseed: yum! And then, we had our first course. A tomato broth with fresh tomatoes and other fresh vegetables. But the taste of that single piece of tomato in the bouillon was so fresh, so rich and so pure. We probably could’ve eaten this course six times in a row, it was that delicious. This tomato heaven was followed by five more wonderful courses, all well prepared and looking beautiful (see below). We had the most tender chicken, goat cheese from Texel and a soft mackerel. If you’re in Amsterdam, you should definitely go and have dinner here yourself. You won’t be sorry..
