Double Dutch Ducks: De Kas Restaurant, Amsterdam


Dutch Ducks

Greetings from Amsterdam! I’m currently spending a couple of days in The Netherlands before heading to Morocco. Amsterdam is the city that feels most like my home away from home. Everyone speaks English so language isn’t a issue. It’s a very walkable, compact city filled with tall people riding and multi-tasking on bicycles.

I had lunch at the De Kas organic restaurant which is one of my favorite dining spots in the city.

It has a locavore-centric menu and it’s located in a lovely greenhouse in the middle of Amsterdam, where they grow their own herbs and Mediterranean vegetables.
