I know it’s taken me way too long to update my blog since we got back. I can only chalk it up to jet lag and pure laziness. But now I simply must write a little about our last supper in Amsterdam. We finally got around to eating Indonesian food and boy, were we sorry we hadn’t tried it sooner. It is now my new favorite ethnic food, and I have absolutely no hope of indulging in it now that we’ve left Amsterdam. Couldn’t someone please open a fabulous Indonesian food restaurant in Santa Barbara?
We went to Kantjil & de Tijger, based on the recommendation of the owners of the apartment. Then we put ourselves into the hands of our waiter, and we let him pick out a bunch of dishes from the a la carte menu. This was the perfect strategy. We had plenty of food and every dish was delicious. Here is a photo of some of our dishes. I'm sorry I can’t even remember what we had, but I know it was all fabulous. The dish in the center was some sort of omelet, and it was some sort of fantastic.
We walked out of Kantjil pleasantly full and had a nice walk back to the apartment. The city was sparkling and beautiful, and we knew we were going to miss it.
