Yesterday I dropped by the annual ‘de rollende keukens’ at Westerpark in Amsterdam. Kitchens on wheels, with food from the ‘barby’, dishes like pancakes, dutch poffertjes, mexican food, seafood, cakes etc. A much bigger event than last years, better weather and more crowded! Gezellig!
The atmosphere was a blast and the concept of the event perfect, but expected more good and more variety cuisine. Meatlovers could eat their hearts out, while vegetarians and vegans had to do with less (or amusement from horses, no joke) while the rollende keukens should be THE event where one must get rad when it comes to food.
Had a lovely time tho’ with some oysters w/ red wine vinegar, lemon, finely chopped sjalots. Lobster, punch, filled surinam/hindu bara (fried black urdi/ urad dal/ black lentil bread with tayer leaf) w/ soy sauce chicken, potato and madame jeanette sauce #hit.
I still support this event and hope that the event gets bigger and will have a better food selection to offer and not becomming something like ‘De Parade’, just keep the concept to ‘rollin’ kitchens’.
A recommendation? Yess. This event as an annual thing to visit? Why? Because It’s gezellig :D If you like more of these events, check out one of my favorites: the Sunday Up Market in London for good snacks and meals. P.s: I’m looking for a good bara recipe to share. So stay tuned :D
