Chef Schilo chose Red King Crab as the new ingredient of the year
Restaurant Taiko Amsterdam celebrates its anniversary with a new ingredient of the year ánd a new menu that fully features this special product. This year will be all about the Red King Crab, something that foodies like me will get very enthusiastic about. To select the best crabs, Chef Schilo traveled from Coevorden to Hammerfest, located North of Norway. There he went on a fishing boat where a experienced ‘Deadliest Catch’ moments.
The result of this adventure can now be tasted in a 12 course menu that costs € 115,- and can be ordered until September 18 2018. For this Red King Crab menu, crabs are flown in from Hammerfest to Amsterdam and kept in tanks at fish shop Jan van As until they are daily brought to the Conservatorium Hotel. The Red King Crab that you’ll get served at Taiko Amsterdam is very fresh. And did you know that such a crab can weigh over ten kilos and can have a span of two meters?
