Papa's Birthday dinner // HOTSPOT: Amuz


October month is such a busy month! One of the thing is my dads birthday and the way we alwaaays celebrate is: a happy birthday singing (a tradition since we were kids), a cake and a dinner out house with the whole family. We usually go eat Chinese but this time we did a fine dining at Amuz restaurant – and it was on me!

Before actually eating at Amuz, we had to wait for my younger brother. And he was late! So late that Amuz was about to close their kitchen and I was really embarrassed. Luckily for us, the host was so kind and understanding and she hold up the kitchen for us. Once my brother arrived from a horrible traffic jam, we finally placed our order.

Did you know that all the dishes at Amuz are just 7,50 bucks? Yes! Pretty much the main reason why I decided to treat the whole family gang ha.
Ok, I now may sound like a total cheapskate but everyone ordered quite a lot of dishes. And thanks to that the bill was over 100 bucks, gulp.

Of course I’ve made pictures, scroll!

Oktober maand is zo'n drukke maand! Een van de drukte is mijn papa’s verjaardag en de manier waarop we altijd vieren, is: een verjaardagslied zingen (een traditie sinds we kinderen waren), een taart en een diner uit huis met de hele familie. Meestal gaan we Chinees eten, maar dit keer zijn we op haute cuisine tour gegaan bij restaurant Amuz – en ik betaalde!

Voordat we daadwerkelijk konden eten bij Amuz, moesten we wachten voor mijn broertje. En hij was laat! Zo laat dat Amuz op het punt stond de keuken te sluiten en ik schaamde me dood natuurlijk.
De gastvrouw was vriendelijk en begripvol en ze hield daarom de keuken voor ons open. Zo lief en ik was zo dankbaar. Zodra mijn broer uiteindelijk kwam van een vreselijke file konden we bestellen.

Wist u dat alle gerechten in AMUZ  slechts €7,50 zijn ? Jawel! De belangrijkste reden waarom ik besloten heb om de hele familie te trakteren.
Ok, ik klink nu als een vrek misschien maar iedereen aan tafel bestelde vrijveel gerechten. En dankzij dat is de rekening meer dan 100 euro.

Natuurlijk heb ik foto’s gemaakt, scroll!

As always: a birthday cake from scratch! More of that soon in another post!

On the house: Indian crispy bread and cucumber dipping sauce! The sauce is so good I really want to have the recipe.

The dimmed room is really charming but not ideal for photography, so all my pictures were taken with a flash. Luckily for me the restaurant was empty. 

'Zeeuwse' bread with the following spreads: tomato, tapenade, aioli, salted butter and olive oil.
I really loved the tomato and the tapenade dips!

Antipasti meatplate with roasted bread and truffle cream. Specially for the dudes around the table, but I did tried the truffle cream it was pretty good!

Antipasti seafood plate with bread and lime mayonnaise. Mainly for me but I've noticed that the guys were enjoying this as well, even more than the meatplate above. My favorite here: the squid rings and the lime mayo!   

 The gents all chosen for the: slow cooked ribs with coleslaw beetroot salad. The meat was really tender however my dad wished that it was coated with honey. 

 And myself: pumpkin risotto with chanterelle mushrooms, pecan nuts and blue cheese. It taste very yum as it looks! The risotto rice was so creamy with a hunch of pumpkin. 

 We finished our night with: chocolate mousse, peanut brownie, vanilla icecream and salted caramel crumbs! This final blow did our stomach well.

I will see him with his skin off before I agree to fall in love


I’m having a lazy Sunday today so I’ll keep it short: coffee, books and Tumblre seeking!

Ik zal het kort houden vandaag want het is tenslotte zondag en dat beteken: koffie, boeken en veel Tumblr avonturen!

 Yesterday it was again 23° C in October and I was clueless of what to wear.
