Sep 14: Smoked Trout; Eatcafe Koevoet


Last IBC started our flirtation with smoked trout over the last year, so we decided to go back to the RAI’s Grand Cafe and once again enjoyed the smoked trout, baked potato and small salad with a beer included for €22.50 (US$26.18) per serve.

This was not just good food for a convention cente, but genuinely good food.


A last minute change of plans found us at Eatcafe Koevoet, near where we are staying in Jordaan. Every time we’ve been here we’ve had an outstanding meal and tonight was no exception.

We started by sharing a tuna carpaccio and a beef carpaccio, swapping half way though. Both were good, but we gave the edge to the tuna.

The tuna carpaccio.

Foodie Philip chose the mixed ravioli in a sage butter sauce, which was flavorsome. Foodie Greg had the Eggplant Parmigiana, which sounds a lot fancier in Italian! This was definitely our favorite of the two, because of the deep, rich tomato flavor of the sauce.

The meal cost €28.25 (US$32.87) per serve and was well worth it.
