Fyra Amsterdam

K and I don’t eat out that often anymore ever since we moved in together. Nowadays, we like to throw our friends lavish dinner parties where we dress up like Gomez and Morticia Addams and serve our guests food alive. I’m kidding – we only do that on Tuesdays. We visited Fyra a while back upon recommendation. The restaurant has a great ambiance and the food was quite decent. Nothing too over the top but good enough to let you and your dinner date enjoy a lovely meal. The staff is also great, attending to your every need. Do look it up when you’re in town. And when you do, get the truffle macaroni with 63degree eggs. I still dream of that dish.

Home-made bread – I like that.

Anxiously waiting for food – don’t keep a hungry woman waiting.

Macaron of beets, smoked mackerel and pickles, setting the tone for the rest of the meal.

A dorade ceviche with beet sauce, assorted carrots and topped with caviar. Too bad I don’t have a better picture of this because it looked phenomenal.

A salmon tartar with slightly pickled cucumbers, wakami, a hint of lemon grass and topped with puffed rice.

Ditto.

A truffle macaroni with eggs cooked at 63 degrees. On camera, this dish looks as if it has worms crawling all over it. But it was the best dish of the night.
