The Indonesian Kitchen Amsterdam: hidden gem on the Herengracht

19 February 2016

Indonesian food lovers go to The Indonesian Kitchen

If you wouldn’t know about the existence of this Indonesian restaurant, you would just ride your bike straight past it. Only a sign on the street tells you that The Indonesian Kitchen is ‘hidden’ in the sous of Herengracht 287. That is a shame, because since last summer you can go there to eat beautiful Indonesian food. And it’s nothing like the old school savoring.

No, at The Indonesian Kitchen in Amsterdam they serve Indonesian food with a modern twist. And the reason these dishes taste awesomely good must have something to do with the fact that the Chef has worked in the only Indonesian restaurant in Holland that had a Michelin star. Now I’ve got your attention, right?

Savoring at The Indonesian Kitchen in Amsterdam

Together with my good friend Lotje I went for an early dinner to The Indonesian Kitchen because we didn’t want to have a late night. Without realising we spend a full 3 hours of having dinner in this cosy restaurant. First we started with an amuse, after that a few starters to share and a delicious spicy soup with a variety of satay’s. When you order the savoring to share, you will get the dishes served in different courses, which makes you have a 5-course dinner all evening long. The Indonesian Kitchen amsterdam

The savoring exists of meat, fish and vegetable dishes served with rice. So tasty! Make sure to leave some room for dessert though, because you really don’t want to miss out on trying that. A lot of dishes on the menu of The Indonesian Kitchen are originally from Bandung. Like the Soto soup!

I will definitely go back to the  The Indonesian Kitchen in Amsterdam. And good to know, you can also order to get home delivery for the times you really don’t feel like going out for dinner.
