On September 15, 2014 I went for lunch to the De Kas Restaurant Amsterdam. My friend Nilay had highly recommended it, so of course I had to go, which was good enough for me!
The restaurant is located inside of a park, so it was quite nice to walk around the area a little beforehand. On this weekday it was quiet in the park with just a few families and one woman getting a personal training session.
De Kas’ dining room is inside of a greenhouse structure, which would be great for any time of the year. However, today the weather was exceptionally fine, so of course everyone sat outside.
First, the Stedelijk, which is a modern art museum. Pretty interesting, and here is a sample of the art represented:
I liked it, a good place to spend a couple of hours or even most of the day if you like.
The next day I went to the Rijks Museum…
I was in Amsterdam for a couple of days beginning with September 13, 2014. One of the things on my must-do list was to find some Indonesian food. Perhaps as a consequence of the Dutch colonization of Indonesia, Holland has a decent-sized Indonesian community. Looking through Tripadvisor I found a listing for Kartika, and went to check
BTW, I am in Amsterdam! Got here yesterday, and here ya go, the obligatory canal view: I’ve been somewhat a tourist here, getting the I Amsterdam card and visiting a lot of museums, etc. But I did have a great Indonesian meal (another post), and met a cool couple from Bruge on the canal boat
