is Hoed & Krelis Amsterdam the new pearl of the pijp?
Hoed & Krelis Amsterdam is a new all-day spot on the Ferdinand Bolstraat in the Pijp. A new place where we really want to go soon. If it was possible, we would jump on our bike and cycle all the way to the Pijp right now. The menu with flowers, the chic interior and the pictures of the food. Okay, I’m excited!
Hoed & Krelis Amsterdam opened a few days ago with a good party and are now open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and a drink. You can find the new restaurant in the Ferdinand Bolstraat, just on the corner of the Albert Cuyp. The perfect spot!
I dropped my eye on the interior. I don’t know why, but the interior of Hoed & Krelis Amsterdam totally fits the name. Think of golden details, green velvet chairs and walls, wooden tables, chic cutlery, plates to die for and a lot of plants to complete the look. And if that’s not enough, the food looks good too. At Hoed & Krelis, they work with local fresh products from the season and they like to work with meat and fish. As we already saw on the menu and pictures. We spotted oysters, veal steak, ceviche, cod, fondue, bavette steak. Yes, this may be the new pearl of the Pijp!
