A couple of months ago I spent a week in Amsterdam. The trip was mostly for work, but first I visited my friend Mandy who lives in Amstelveen.  Some friends from the UK joined us for the weekend and it was lovely.  A food-related highlight was dinner at Restaurant Blauw, an Indonesian restaurant near the western end of Vondelpark.

Indonesian restaurants in the Netherlands serve something called rijsttafel, which means “rice table”.  It consists of lots of different dishes, to share, so that you get to try lots of things.  Restaurant Blauw offers vegan rijsttafel!  So of course I ordered it and it was delicious.  I’ve forgotten the details and I can’t find the menu online, but there was tofu, tempeh, yummy vegetables, sate sauce, salad, rice.  What I do remember is how much I enjoyed the meal. I wish Amsterdam wasn’t so far away from Sydney!
