Tucked away in the picturesque neighbourhood of Delfshaven, this quaint vegetarian establishment lives up to the Dutch phrase ‘geen blabla’, meaning ‘no nonsense’. The food is simple yet delicious, and the menu changes often depending on what the chefs feel like, adding to its homely vibe. To experience the apogee of flavour, choose individual dishes such as tapas from the Oriental/Mediterranean-inspired menu. From Japanese mushroom parcels to creamy curried vegetables, you won’t fail to love the home cooked savour. Whilst you wait, soak up the warm hum of the evening with a crisp glass of organic Spanish wine.
