Combine a beautiful Sunday with bloody mary’s, your bestie to get hammered with, a stunning view and a 3 course brunch. All of this is possible at Restaurant Nevel at the Westerdoksdijk 40 - Amsterdam.
I’ve always been more into long lavish lunches/brunches and then have an easy light meal for dinner. So this was just the perfect way for my friend Y. and I to spend our Sunday afternoon together to catch up while indulge ourselves in all the goodness Nevel had to offer us. Oh life is good!! :D
The waiter who served us from the beginning till the very end was super friendly, helpful and looked very cool with his brown leather apron. I like it when a restaurant makes the effort to style the staff just as nice as they styled the interior. It’s not just my tummy who is hungry, the eyes need to be pleased just as much if you’d ask me!
Although I’m not a big meat eater, the starter: Charcuterie with pickles was SOOO SOOO GOOD! The whole combination of the crisp freshly baked bread with the piccalilli and the slices of different (dried) meat was so incredibly tasty! My friend and I first thought it was way to much on that platter for us to finish but a few minutes later.. it was empty.. EMPTY!!
Roasted beef with some veggies on the side as the main course.
The dessert really blew us away, oh men, the home made raspberry icecream, the sweet and sour mini pie was just crazy delish! From super chatty to absolute silence we went when we started to eat the dessert. That’s a sign for a chef to know you’ve done well. So Chef Ricardo, you’ve done well ;D thanks for having us.
