Mussel time at Strandzuid Amsterdam!

19 August 2015

The mussel season is back at StrandZuid Amsterdam

It’s time for mussels again! Although mussels are pretty much served all year nowadays, they still really taste better during the mussel season. At Your Little Black Book we are crazy about a good mussel pot with fries on a sunny terrace and that’s why we dined at Strand Zuid last month to try out the mussels there!

What we like so much about Strand Zuid is that you can relax here outside near the water. Have a glass of wine and a platter with different kinds of fish and meat as starters. Delicious! Feel more like having a beer? At Strand Zuid they now of course have the new Biergarten so there’s plenty of options!

Anne grew up in Zeeland so of course the choice was made quickly ;-)

For the main course we all ordered a mussel pot. The Zeeuws mussel pot. With Zeeuws mussels cooked in Brand Imperator beer. Anne grew up in Zeeland so of course the choice was made quickly ;-). Want to try something else? The Asian pot with mussels that are deglazed with Chinese wine and served with black bean sauce also sounds nice! And the Italian pot with mussels in tomato sauce and typical Italian herbs seems great as well.

The mussels at Strandzuid are deliciously served with three different sauces, fries and a salad. This salad is by the way served in a small weckpot, super nice!

Still feel like having a dessert afterwards? Then go for the Scroppino! I always find that so refreshing and really finishes it up for me after a good meal!
