Venkel is a little gem. I discovered them on Instagram, and after seeing their big, beautiful salads, I knew this was a place I needed to visit.
It’s a good thing most places in Amsterdam have an English menu, otherwise I’d be spending half my time on Google Translator. Phew.
Their menus are seasonal, and their Fall Salads looked very good.
I was feeling a little poorly, so I sat down and ordered a Ginger Tea.
I got some hot water and freshly sliced ginger to put into it. I’m in love.
Sadly, I was a little too poorly to stay and had to order a takeaway. I wanted to impress you with gorgeous photos of salads, but I had to bike home and go to bed, so I got a takeaway instead. Sorry guys! Commence my 15 minute journey turning into an hour and a half because I got lost. I am useless.
I was genuinely nearly in tears by the time I’d gotten home. At least by the time I felt better, I had this box of goodness in bed to cheer me up.
I’m pretty sure it was the first taste of vegetables I’ve had all weekend. I had the Autumn Piece Salad – Beluga Lentils, Brussels Sprouts, Chicory, Chestnuts, Sprouts, Cranberries & Walnuts with Cranberry Vinaigrette.
100% recommend. I’ll be back.
