Sep 15: Fillet American; Riva


On our way to the convention center we stopped again at Van Dobben for each, or US$5.26 per serve.


For dinner the Foodies were invited to join our friends at LumaForge for their annual cruise and dinner. The cruise was a pleasant trip up the Amstel river and back to restaurant Riva, which is where we had an excellent meal last year.

We er not disappointed this year. As we only saw the menu in Dutch the descriptions are my own.

We started with a deeply tomato flavored tomato tatin topped with creamy burrata.  The main was a choice between beef two ways: slow cooked and grilled. That was the choice of 90% of our table, including Foodie Greg . Philip had the fish, which turned out to be a piece of seared and perfectly cooked white fish like cod, on a potato mousse, with kale and mussels. As you would expect it was very good.

The meal concluded with a rich soft chocolat balanced against a sharp orange sorbet, which perfectly balanced each other.

An excellent meal, and excellent company. Many thanks to LumaForge for inviting us.
