TRIED & TESTED: ROSA & RITA AMSTERDAM

April 23, 2011

Most striking feature:

Pizza and steak. Their menu is all about those two dishes. I tried the Pizza with mozzarella and basil. Just like my sister who compared it with a pizza we tasted in Italy. So it is as if you’re in Italy and that’s a good sign. I’m not a food connaisseur but if Johannes van Dam (the restaurant reviewer from the Netherlands) gives this place a 9, well: then it’s good. The interior is simple but fantastic. It’s located in an old warehouse and you see still see the old beams when you look up. Because it was sunny yesterday we sat outside their terrace with picknick tables. Oh, and it’s really affordable as well (I tried the most expensive pizza which costs 11 euro).

TRIED & TESTED: WILDE ZWIJNEN AMSTERDAM

May 13, 2010


Most striking feature:

Apart from the fact that this restaurant is also situated in upcoming Amsterdam East (just like De Kas and Pompstation) you can call this newly opened (april 2010) restaurant basic. Simple lamps, tables made out of wood that’s rougly treathened and the most basic of all: the taps in the toilet. I’ve been here with my friend Eveline Kuin (who writes about her fabulous vintage finds on Vintage42.com) for lunch and took the van Dobben kroketten (typical Dutch dish) with mustard. My friend choose for thick slices of bread with pesto, mozzarella and cherry tomatoes on it. You can watch the chefs prepare their dishes and later in the afternoon we saw a steaming hot, and nice smelling, apple cake coming right of the oven. Nice!
