HOTSPOT: Het Postkantoor II

EN

I’m a home person but even a home person need to get out of the house every now and then and one of my favourite outings: eating outings! And
One of my recent eating outings is at Het Postkantoor once again. My first time here is almost 1,5 year ago where I had an ok lunch (fuller post here). Het Postkantoor which still means ‘The Post Office’ in Dutch also serves dinner and it is something that I’d love to try it out. Their main cuisine: Italian: from pizza to antipasti to pasta!
Along with a bestie we sure took our time picking our dishes because there we a lot of dishes that we’d love to try out.
We know our eyes are bigger than our stomach so we stick with a main and a dessert.
Is it another ok meal again or is dinner their speciality? I sure still love their interior. Scroll down for the verdict!

Ik ben een thuis persoon en ben dus liefst lekker thuis maar zelfs een thuis persoon moet zo nu en dan even erop uit dan is mijn favoriete erop uitjes: uit eten in een fijn restaurant!
En een van mijn recente uit eten is bij Het Postkantoor alweer. Mijn eerste keer hier is alweer bijna 1,5 jaar geleden waar ik een middenmoot lunch had (volledig post hier). Het Postkantoor serveert ook het diner en dat zou ik graag willen uitproberen! Hun keuken is voornamelijk: Italiaans - van pizza tot antipasti tot pasta!
Samen met een van mn beste vriendinnetjes gingen we hier vertoeven en het kiezen van een gerecht was best lastig, want het menukaart was divers en deze beschreven eten klonken allemaal evengoed.
Vaak is het zo dat onze ogen groter is dan onze maag, dus kozen we netjes 1 hoofd- en nagerecht.
En was onze maaltijd weer een middenmoot of is het diner hun specialiteit? Een ding is zeker: hun interieur is prachtig nog steeds! Scroll naar beneden voor het oordeel!





The main
I've chosen: risotto with prawns. To me a risotto should be: creamy and moist which isn't the case with my ordered dish. The rice was on the dry side which is a let down because the rest was quite seasoned well with good cooked prawns.

 And my friend had the: tagliatelle with prawns. I had a little piece of it and it tasted good! I might even order it next time.


The dessert
 This homemade chocolate mousse is what my friend picked out and it's GOOD! 

 Het Postkantoor has tiramisu and I almost picked that one. But I end up picking their panna cotta with berries. It was quite good actually. 
... 
A funny and noteable thing was the table next to us also ordered dessert like mine and couldn’t help but to glance and find out that their panna cotta was missing the whipped cream and garnish and all they had was the panna cotta! Weird right?


 Ok a little cheat cuz we got a 2nd dessert: Italian Coffee! Really good stuff trust me.

  3. yummm! The Italian coffee looks so good! & that is very odd that the table next to you didn't get the garnish for their panna cotta! I think I would've asked for the waiter to take it back if I were them!

  10. You look lovely on the first pic with your meal finished! :) Agree with the risotto it doesn't look like one at all, nothing about the creamy cheesy texture but the prawns in it look like an excellent idea. Mmm the tagliatelle look yummy! love italian food :)
