5 X THIS IS WHAT YOU GUYS ALL READ LAST MONTH
Fondue Oost: Truffle fondue, a Mexican fondue with nachos or fondue with French blue cheese, which fondue at Fondue East do you want to try?
Chin Chin Club: The Chin Chin Club is the place to be for everything, really everything! For old school karaoke and nostalgic games, cocktails and clubbing until early in the morning, dim sum and other tasty Chinese dishes.
SUSHISAMBA: YES, SUSHISAMBA came with its Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine to the center of Amsterdam. The restaurant that’s located in cities such as London, New York, Las Vegas and Miami has been on our travel bucket list for years. And now they finally arrived in Amsterdam!
Nacarat: A new restaurant of Ron Blauw in Hudson’s Bay! The menu has a Middle Eastern touch. For lunch you can think of light dishes like Lebanese bread with humus, but also oysters and a good glass of wine. In the evening, Nacarat focuses on fine dining in a Tel Aviv-style.
Le Nouveau Riche: Le Nouveau Riche is a wine bar where you can also go for lunch and shared-dining with a French twist, and until late in the afternoon for drinks and dancing. What’s really nice is that the kitchen is open daily until midnight and the doors only close hours later.
