After being absent on this blog for over two months, I’m back! The long absence wasn’t really planned, but unfortunately unavoidable. The good thing though is that I did not stop taking pictures of all the great, great food I ate. So, there is a lot to look out for.
But first this absolutely fantastic döner kebab I ate the other week. While visiting my friend N. we didn’t really wanted to cook and he told me he knew a place where they serve great döner kebab: “the best döner kebab of Amsterdam” to be precise;). Although I haven’t eaten enough döner in Amsterdam to really give it that title, I can assure you that it was the best that I have eaten in Amsterdam so far. Although I prefer veal above chicken when eating my döner kebab, N. convinced me to try the chicken. I was not disappointing. Oh what a great döner kebab it was. We settled for the large chicken döner kebab which costed 4 euros 50. This is not an expensive price since you will pay a lot more for a regular kebab at other döner places in Amstedam. Furthermore, what made it worth it were the big döner kebabs that we got which were not only filled properly with meat, but also had a great distribution inside. Don’t you hate it when you get a döner kebab that has all the meat on the bottom of the bun and all the vegetables on top? This döner kebab had both meat and vegetables evenly distributed which meant that you got a bit of both with every bite. Another really nice touch was that you had the sambal sauce and the garlic sauce on the table in a squeeze bottle. For those of you with experience, it means drowning your döner kebab in sauce after every bite!
To complete this simple yet delicious meal, the owners of the place offered us some Turkish tea since we were sitting in the place for our meal:
Yes ladies and gentleman, it was a great eating experience indeed.
