Oke I know I posted on my facebook page that I was going to cook tonight.. BUT..plans changed spontaneously. It's Sunday.. that happens right ;) ?!
After a nice lunch at 'Greenwoods' we did some shopping downtown and then my friend D. suggested to go for a nicely grilled steak at 'Castell'! As I couldn't eat the last week because I was just not feeling hungry with the flu and all I thought this was a great idea to get some energy back into my hungry body! Even though I'm not really a big meat-eater, a nicely medium steak from time to time can really do you good!
I can't believe I almost forgot about this fantastic grill house, it's practically on the Leidseplein, so very central and they serve one of the best grilled steak in town! Super tender meat with a delicious bbq taste.. M. M. MMMmmmmm... I ordered the -Beef Amazona, the lady fillet steak of 200 gram (22,50 Euro) and D. ordered the -Holandes Gaucho, Dutch Fat Ass Steak of 350 gram (22,50 Euro). We were both very satisfied with our choice and it was exactly the nice amount of meat we needed!
The atmosphere here is just very laid back, cosy and informal, perfect for our relaxed Sunday dinner!
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who just wants no-nonsense food in a no-nonsense atmosphere! If you're with more then 2 persons it's better to make reservation beforehand.
I promise you I'll definitely cook tomorrow, maybe a nice Thai red curry.. or no wait.. a nicely grilled salmon with some veggies on the side.. or.. spicy grilled chicken with..oh well as I'm thinking about food and recipes again that means I'm really over the Flu (Thank God!). Good night dear readers!
