EATER kwam naar Amsterdam en ging gelijk ook even langs Instock op het Westergasterrein.
Today, Eater visits the Netherlands to highlight the 12 newish bars and restaurants garnering some serious buzz in Amsterdam. Just like last time, intrepid traveler, ElizabethOnFood.com blogger, and restaurant reviewer Elizabeth Auerbach shares her picks for the hottest drinking and dining Amsterdam currently has to offer.
Among her selections — which are listed here in no particular order — are a modern Dutch restaurant inside the country’s cultural Rijksmuseum (Rijks), a pop-up “no waste” restaurant serving salvaged food (Instock), and a “foodbar” that specializes in two perfect pairings: mussels frites and gin-and-tonics (Mossel & Gin). There’s also the long-awaited brick-and-mortar location of Amsterdam’s long-stewing ramen pop-up, Fou Fow Ramen, one of “Amsterdam’s few and rare ramen restaurants.”
This pop-up is Amsterdam’s first “no waste” restaurant, serving food made with produce destined to be thrown away by Dutch supermarket chain Albert Heijn. Every morning the restaurant picks up the ingredients for its daily-changing menu with an electric “Food Rescue” van. Guests can check Instock’s Facebook page to see what’s on the menu each day. Open ’til May 2015.
