the favourite bowls of Denise Kortlever author of “ALL DAY BOWLS”

When I grew up the only thing you ate in a bowl was soup or porridge. Now every dish that follows the latest food trends is served in a bowl. And I have to be honest…. I kinda like it! I think a burrito bowl is so much better than a normal burrito. Or maybe it’s just me that I can’t handle those wraps, lol. And then there are the poké bowls, my latest addiction when it comes to raw fish. A few weeks ago I was at the book launch of food blogger Denise Kortlever her second book called All Day Bowls and MY-OH-MY this lady really knows how to turn every recipe into a delicious bowl. If you want to try it at home you should definitely order her book. Bowls are also perfect to bring to your work as a lunch! Do you rather go out for some healthy bowls? Especially for Your Little Black Book Denise listed her favourite bowls in Amsterdam for you!


6 x the best bowls in Amsterdam

1. Oat bowl: the new Oats from Yoghurt Barn and of course my own bowl I created for them as a special on the menu. You can get my All-day breakfast bowl at all their branches, also outside of Amsterdam. With oats and apple, dulce de leche and pecan. I can eat this one all day every day!
2. Açai bowl: the açaibowls at Coffee & Coconuts and Pluk. Now it’s almost too cold for a fruitsmoothie like this in a bowl but on warmer days I love this healthy dish.
3. Falafal bowl: the falafel bowl from SLA. It has different falafel fillings every season (from spinach to sweet potato), healthy kurkuma cauliflower and homemade hummus.
4. Poké bowl: Poké bowls at Poké Perfect. I like the one with the spicy sriracha mayonaise best. Almost s delicious as the ones I ate in California!
5. Noodle bowl: Pho (Vietnamese noodle soup) at Pho91 is always a good idea and the last few weeks I hear good stories about Bo Nam. I have to go there soon!
6. Porridge bowl: the berry porridge with buckwheat and goat yogurt at Scandinavian Embassy. It’s not always on the menu, but when you see it you really have to try it. A picture perfect dish, a bit weird but most of all very delicious!

Tip #7 from Denise: officially a deep plate is not a bowl, but I really want to share this last one with you. The desserts at Choux! Still one of my favourites in Amsterdam. The dessert with raspberries, roses and pistache madeleines I ate there a few weeks ago was amazing. Please not that the menu changes frequently though!
