Along with fellow food bloggers Girlslove2travel, Dishtails, Waar Amsterdam Eet, Polabur and Wanderlust, I went to try the Westergasterras’ new winter menu. This restaurant is located at the Westergasfabriek. Besides a great location, this restaurant is spacious, but cozy at the same time.
We started the evening with raw scallops in an oriental marinade served with wakame salad. I love scallops and I could have easily eaten another serving of this. The second course was a sort of open lasagna but with filo pastry and grilled vegetables. The crunchy filo gave it a light touch. This was followed by catfish wrapped in bacon served with barley and marinated vegetables. The meaty fish was delicious!
A tajine came next filled with couscous, a pumpkin stew, chickpeas and raita.
The Westergasterras is also starting a new concept. Beginning in January, They will host the “Roast Of” every Thursday. They will roast a different kind of meat every week on their large terrace. We got to try the wild duck this time along with potato mash, roasted potatoes and carrots, sauerkraut and orange sausce.
And it wouldn’t be a complete meal without something sweet at the end. We munched on a tasting of different cakes from Sweet Love Addiction. The coconut one was my favorite!
The winter menu will be available starting from the 23rd of December and the “Roast of” every Thursday at 7pm starting in January.
