REMOUILAGE

What can we expect at Café Remouillage Amsterdam? According to Chef Jonathan, we can expect smaller dishes. They cook with seasonal and local ingredients as much as possible for the best quality. A fun detail: Chef Jonathan cooks as much as possible with the nose-to-tail principle, which means using as much of an animal as possible in the kitchen.

LE SMASH

Once you know the concept of a smash burger, you won’t want anything else. A smash burger is made by placing a round ball of minced meat on a blazing hot griddle and then pressing it flat. It creates a chemical process that makes the burger crispier and juicier than any other. At Le Smash, they have elevated this method to true artistry.
