Wait a minute and the weather changes. How true. This morning it was sunny but cool. I could still see the full moon. I had gone to sleep watching it out the window and it had not yet set by morning. At lunch, we walked to get a broodje. It was warm and lovely. I didnt want to go back to work. But by time I left work, the rain had return with a light sprinkle.
I decided to walk into town after work instead of catching the bus at the train station. I knew the route so I could check out some of the shops and restaurants I saw from the bus and catch it later along the way. I really didnt have any intention of eating out but an eetcaf頬ooked interesting. It is called d'Oude Harmonie. On the spur of the moment I just decided to go in.
It was very nice inside. One one side was the bar. And around the other side and front was a balcony making it two levels. There were tables below the balcony. The paneling was dark and the candle light gave it a warm and cozy feeling. They also made me (a single woman diner) feel very welcome.
The menu was in Dutch but I know enough to be able read the menu. Dutch eet cafes usually have a plate of the day. It was trout with mustard sauce. Dutch eet cafes also always serve small bowls of a vegetable, fries or potatoes and a mixed salad along with the entree. I decided to order the trout plate of the day and had a Leffe Blonde beer while waiting.
The trout was actually very good. The mustard sauce was a little thick but tasty. It was seasoned with a grainy mustard. The vegetables and fries were not over cooked and the salad was a mixture of julienne vegetables (carrot, cucumber, jicima, red pepper). I decided to have dessert and ordered the chocolate Bavarian. It was very rich but good. I also had a decaffeinated cappuccino so Ill be able to sleep tonight!
