Yesterday we tried the new restaurant by chef Dennis Huwaë (Restaurant Daalder). It is located on the west side of Het Sierrad (previously Lokaal Edel).
Here there is no chef’s menu, only a la carte. He will cook his favorite dishes from all over the world. Dennis is known for making unique flavor combinations and here it will be no different. Only with a more laid-back approach, more comfort food style cooking.
For example, at Restaurant Daalder the pigeon on the menu is: Pigeon breast with sauerkraut cooked in goose fat, green apple jelly, jus of mustard seeds and potato mousseline with horseradish.
At Edel by Dennis the same dish will be: Pigeon and goose liver sausage with a stamppot of the same sauerkraut and potato mousseline. Served with pigeon gravy, apple sauce and fresh herbs.
We tried the salted cod tacos which were delicious. We had a small chicken three ways. Fried drumsticks, yakitori and the breast still on the bone. The last one was so moist and tender. Also loved the fried chicken. The crust was perfectly crispy, not too thick and it was still juicy.
I am already a fan of Dennis. Restaurant Daalder doesn’t disappoint and I’m very happy we got to sample some of the menu items of this new concept. This menu is more for casual dining and since there is no set menu, you can stay as long or as short as you want.
It will open on the 31stof October.
