Rembrandt Square in Amsterdam is a very popular spot for tourists. You will find a coffeeshop on almost every corner and lots of cafes where you won’t see a single local, but there are some exceptions. Check out my visit to Kitchen & Bar Van Rijn!

Because of the beautiful decor, impressive bar and delicious, culinary surprises, this is one of my favorite spots at Rembrand Square. The wine list is top notch, including a Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough Region in New Zealand. Looooove!
We start the night with a refreshing, Eastern appetizer with watermelon, impregnated with ginger beer, wasabi mayonnaise & sesame seeds. Next to that you see a gnocchi of semolina, curry & smoked egg yolk. Yummm!
My friend’s main course is a smooth risotto, with a crisp of Parmesan cheese, asparagus, dried tomato & carrot. I try the tender roast veal entrecote with artichoke, carrot, red wine & pommes dauphine. Both dishes are very tasty and full of flavour.
The highlight of the night is dessert, of course. Very sweet, but no problem for a sweet tooth like me. We share a white chocolate mousse with strawberry crème, a strawberry ‘explosion’ and strawberry ice cream. The yoghurt ice cream, a bit sweeter than expected, with lemon & flower power is highly recommended too! #sharingiscaring
