Still no sign of green in Amsterdam. The streets of the city look and feel as if stuck in an eternal winter, grey and wet. These days I am walking with a purpose and destination in mind, and have no enthusiasm for wandering around, not even for photos.
I am, however, happy to discover welcoming interiors where I can spend my time and eat good food. Some of them (New Werktheater, 4850, Libertine Café, Back to Black Van Hallstraat) I have already mentioned in previous posts. Now it is time to drop some words and photos on yet another discovery of this neverending winter – Kanarie Club.
A couple of weeks ago, Jharda and I went to see a movie at the Film Hallen, and before that, we stopped for lunch at Kanarie Club, literally next door from the cinema. We shared a quinoa salad with hummus and sweet potato, a baba ganoush focaccia with grilled courgette, and pancakes with caramelized pineapple. Everything tasted oh-so-good! At a table next to us someone was indulging into some deliciously looking wentelteefjes (Dutch version of French toast) and I’ve been meaning to go back and have some myself ever since.
That being said, I am looking forward to sunnier days when I can just lie on the grass in the park, a book and a bottle of beer at hand.
