Rijks Restaurant

Rijks opened in November and it is located at the Rijksmuseum. The concept of the restaurant is Dutch cuisine and it offers a variety of cold and hot small dishes.  They also offer a choice to order a chef’s menu of 5 (€52.50) or 7 (€72.50) dishes plus 1 dessert. I was looking forward to having dinner there and checking it out since I had been reading a lot of positive reviews about it. I went there with my husband last week and we had the 7 course menu.

The amuse was a bowl of radishes with piccalilli and olive snow.

Our first dish was marinated Mackerel with glass noodles and a stock that was poured at the table.

It was followed by a roasted lobster tail with a curry crème and puffed buckwheat.  The crunchiness of the buckwheat was a really nice touch.

Then we had a plate with razor clam shells filled with mussels, clam and razor clams topped with a buttery crumb.

After that we had the duck pancakes with pickled fennel and crème crue.

Next came the braised ox cheek with apple cream and spiced crumbs. Along  with this dish came a plate of braised parsnip with a chicken liver jus.

Our last savory dish was mini game meat pie with bacon mayonnaise and sauerkraut.

Then we had a little ice cream cone filled with vanilla cream and topped with a ball of pear sorbet.

The last dish was a Kir. It was their version of the drink in a dessert. It was the perfect way to end the meal because it was delicious and not too sweet.

My favorites were the cold dishes and the dessert. The service was overall good and the food was fantastic. It is definitely worth visiting.

This was the menu we ordered:menu

    Wow, dat ziet er lekker uit. Wist helemaal niet dat dit er was.
    Een 7 gangen menu zit er voor mij niet in maar een gerechtje pas wel in mijn budget dus staat zeker op de planning!
