Butcher Amsterdam: discover the secret kitchen of The Butcher

4 October 2013

A night at the Secret Kitchen of the Butcher Amsterdam

Last weekend my love and I finally went to the secret kitchen of the Butcher. I hear you thinking… Secret kitchen? We went to the burger bar many times. This cosy burger joint makes the best flame grilled burgers in town and is always busy. But this time we were invited for dinner in the Secret Kitchen of the Butcher Bar Amsterdam. As the name already states… this place is secret ;-). So what happens in the Secret Kitchen of The Butcher… stays in The Secret Kitchen of The Butcher. My lips are sealed how you get in, what the interior design looks like and how the vibe in The Secret Kitchen is.


The menu of the Secret Kitchen of the Butcher Amsterdam

On the menu at the secret kitchen of the Butcher Amsterdam you find classic dishes like ceviche (I LOVE ceviche!), baby octopus, sirloin steak and off course… a juicy burger. The service at this place is great and very professional. After dinner we had drinks and enjoyed the rest of the evening!


You can reserve a table at The Secret Kitchen from Wednesday to Sunday between 20.00 – 22.30 o’clock via info@the-butcher.com. Have fun and don’t tell the secret of The Butcher ;-)!
