Il Caminetto, A Beautiful Setting for Both A Meal And A Learning Experience…

Having been lucky enough to score a spot in the central restaurant in Isselburg-Anholt, a German town almost on the German/ Dutch border, exactly on the day that they were celebrating the hunting season with a grand and formal meal.

As part of a series of events it was clear that a lot of preparation had been put into this special day.

From the young people taking part in their formal attire, traditional sashes, hats and costume for the young men, the formal group meal with speeches and, the horses and carriages that arrived to carry the party off to the next stage of the celebrations, we had stumbled on something special and were excited to learn something new to us.

The restaurant called “il Caminetto” and is located in a very beautiful, equally old building.

The staff were very friendly, helpful and informative, even though most of the time they were very busy with the larger hunting party event group. Our main course was lovely, the dessert delectable and the atmosphere of the building added what ended up being a well enjoyed lunch. We didn’t have a horse drawn carriage waiting for us when we left, but we left well fed and happy, so we got the fairy tale ending anyway.

The Battle Of Dessert: We Get The Message…

Back in December of 2013, family Kiwidutch stayed in Singapore on a stopover visit before flying on to New Zealand.

Himself and our Singaporean friend “Velvetine” made a day trip to Pulau Ubin Island whilst the kids and I rested at the hotel.

Staying here regularly as repeat guests, and the kids impressing the lifeguards with their swimming skills, we are now on first name terms with several of the hotel lifeguards,  especially Joseph who remember us well from previous visits.

Joseph is the man who helped organised some very special transport on an earlier trip so that I could go out for dinner on the beach with the rest of the family:  Dune Buggy to the Rescue!

After Himself and Velvetine got back from their trip, and rested a while whilst telling us all about their day,  Himself then disappeared into the shower and we all got ready for a nice dinner in the Rasa Sentosa restaurant.

We laughed at the sign that advised guests to be aware the floors were slippery,  whilst a tropical downpour deluged the terrace the sign was on. We were all entertained by the pea hens before heading to the restaurant too.

Our kids adore the buffet arrangement here, but Little Mr appeared to be a little confused about the order of the menu and was not amused when we said that his main course may not consist of items solely from the desert section.

He managed to keep a self-served icecream because it seemed a waste to just let it melt on the plate, but the marshmallows and cookies were removed until he had eaten some pasta and cucumber , but even those were a few spoonful’s at best. As the saying goes, this kid “lives on the smell of an oily rag”.

Eventually he settled on (of all things) buttered toast (really kid?) I know I know, as far as our kids eating habits are concerned Himself and I constantly feel like we lost the battle. The roast pork, seafood, vegetables, salad, rice, soups… so many other things to choose from, all rejected. Frustrated that he could not instantly get his own way, Little Mr got hold of a handful of small biscuits / crackers that were in the shape of alphabet letters and arranged them into a “You may get it and now” message whilst he demolished his toast.

Yes, he ate rather a lot of the unwanted biscuit/ cracker letters too… oh well, we were all jet lagged and sometimes with kids you have to pick your battles. Kiwi Daughter did better, trying bok choy and eating fruit before also heading off to the desert section with a grin. marshmallows on sticks would be dipped into a chocolate fountain or a few other sauces, Little Mr presented me with a “flower” made out of the marks on the plate from his left over chocolate sauce. Sadly, typical kid, the marshmallows were not part of the gift. We all enjoyed the band, who we also know from previous visits and Kiwi Daughter delighted over the creme brulees in their tiny little dishes.  Rested and refreshed it was then time to head on to New Zealand.

Finding An Accessible Beach Spot…

(photograph © Kiwidutch)

(photograph © Kiwidutch)

This summer my kids spent their fair share of time at the beach.

Most of the time they were with  a group that consists of several families and they had several set places to go to that were firm favourites.

Getting to most of these favourite places involved a walk or bike ride through the dunes, so were not possible for me to visit.

We therefore made a loose arrangement that during the week they would go to which location they fancied, but on weekends we would chose somewhere where it was possible for me to join them.

Located on the southern side of the harbour, and with a car-park very close by, La Cantina is a perfect location to take anyone in a wheelchair or who can not walk far.

There was a choice of indoor or outdoor seating, so we chose to sit out of doors but with  large shade umbrella.The kids came and went as other adults accompanied them to the water and on the sand so at some moments I was alone, other moments sitting with other adults between supervision duties. Nearing the end of the day everyone started to get hungry so we ordered dinner: this for 99% of us consisted of pancakes, I had shrimp since I had had a toasted sandwich earlier.

The staff are very friendly and especially patient when after everyone else has ordered a certain kid said ” I think I want a pancake… wait… (looks through entire menu very slowly as our waitress stands waiting)… yes, I’ll have a pancake“. Seriously kid? Our meal arrives and pancakes are scoffed by kids, who then race way for a game on the sand before returning later for ice-blocks. The sun is shining, the day is warm, the kids are busy and happy, the food is great and I’m not doing the washing-up. What’s not to like?

Excellent Lunch And The Best Seats In The House…

(photograph © Kiwidutch)

(photograph © Kiwidutch)

This summer  in the “Knus”,  a cafe / restaurant located in the “Delftse Hout” I found something to add to my “dream house if money were no object” list.

Since Himself and I are both allergic to winter, it stands to reason that this house would be somewhere with a warm climate, and what is nicer on a hot sunny day than relaxed al fresco dining with friends and family?

With skin cancer running in the family,  a general knowledge that excess sunshine is bad for your skin and that slapping on sunscreen regularly is messy and inconvenient, I always opt for the easy option: shade.

The problem with sun umbrellas, no matter how large, is that the movement of the sun means that a couple of changes of position are usually necessary, and seating a large group can be problematic.

On a good hot day like this day we were in Delft,  and with a group of ten, I was delighted to find my dream seating dining area.

It was a large recessed area with a small hedge around it as a wind break, benches, seats and tables around the edges, and large timber supports holding up an overhead canopy.

The toddler and smaller children were also effectively “corralled” by this arrangement which provided a natural play area with this natural boundary.

With all of the tables free when we arrived, we were able to pick the ideal spot with enough sunshine and shade to suit everybody and we didn’t have to worry about chasing reluctant kids with sunscreen for a while.

The cushions on the seats were an added quirky bonus: the kids busy swapping them around as they decided it was most important that the sit on ” an orange, or a slice of watermelon”.

Lunch is both adult and kid friendly: various salads and kid favourites like toasted sandwiches.

Everyone adored the food and every crumb was demolished.

In my ideal dream home scenario however, I would make two small changes to this seating area: first add a ramp instead of steps, and second, add retractable mesh screens so that evening dining does not attract mosquitos and and other unwelcome guests. For the rest I just need to bring a tape measure and confirm my ideal dimensions… oh, and wait for our one lottery ticket per month to come good.

One of Delftse Hout’s Best Kept Secrets…

(photograph © Kiwidutch)

(photograph © Kiwidutch)

This summer we met up for a Saturday lunch with two sets of friends in Delft.

The location is in “Delftse Hout” a wooded are just outside Delft, and the place is called “Knus”,  a café / restaurant  that is located in the middle of a recreation area.

As well as a large playground for small children, there are things like canoeing on offer so it’s a popular meeting spot for families.

Our three families have kids that range in age from toddler to teenager so it was nice to have something to please everyone.

This Saturday had stunning weather too so to say it was busy here was an understatement.

First we scored a table next to the kids playground but it was a table really meant for two, maybe two at a push and there were ten of us.

Also it was in a spot without shade and even after a five minutes waiting for the others it become uncomfortably warm. Then the first of our friends arrived and let us know that there was also a spot out the back, at the rear of the restaurant. Before we take a seat though I take a look around…

Like Diamonds In The Rough There Are Traces Of Sparkle…

(photograph © Kiwidutch)

(photograph © Kiwidutch)

Earlier this year, Himself and I had a late afternoon appointment near the center of the city of The Hague.

We finished more or less at the time that we expected and were preparing to come home when we decided to phone the respective friends where our kids had been hanging out since they arrived home after school to see how things were going.

They were not only both going exceptionally well and having such a great time, they begged to stay for dinner where they were.

We spoke to our friends to check if this would be ok and since both replied with an enthusiastic “Yes”, we suddenly found ourselves in no rush to rush home to cook dinner for the family.

Both Himself and I were fairly tired and didn’t want to go all around the city looking for somewhere to eat, so kept our search to the area close to where we had parked our car.

This is how we ended up at the Spanish “Que pasa” Restaurant in the Laan van Meerdervoort.

Since it was early Spring it was bitterly cold on the street, we were early and there were few people around so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. We both agreed that we fancied Tapa and ordered accordingly.

The meal certainly wasn’t bad, the prawns and dried ham were nice but the meatballs were so-so and whilst the lamb chops looked fabulous, they were rather tough. Nothing stood out and made us instantly decide that a return visit would be in order. There was no “wow” factor.

I spied a lovely garden area out the back that I imagine would be excellent for a summer’s day visit, it even had a view of the Peace Palace tower, so had a temperature not been about 9 degrees Celsius with an added freezing wind, it might have been a nice place to sit.

The people were very friendly too, so that wasn’t the problem either, it’s just that the food wasn’t really up to what many people expect these days when they go out of a meal.

It’s a shame, because supporting little places like this is exactly what we want to be about, and there is always the added hope that when you walk in the door that maybe, just maybe we might have discovered a hidden gem. Sadly this one is more a diamond in the rough: there are traces of sparkle but not quite enough to have made a brighter review.

No Prizes For Guessing What My Next Order Will Be…

(photograph © Kiwidutch)

One of the hospitals in and around The Hague that I have contact with as I pursue answers and treatments for my foot damaged in an accident six years ago is the Reiner De Graff hospital in Delft.
I have watched during my time as a patient, the building of a brand new state-of-the-art building next to the old hospital and the recent transfer from the old to the new.

It’s usual of course to have cafeteria in hospitals, this one also has it’s own brasserie.  My last visit here happened to be just before lunch time and Himself, my “driver” since I am unable to drive myself, had organised his work load to accommodate the time of my usual appointment.

Unusually on this occasion, my update, test results and appointment for my next treatment went so swiftly that we found ourselves with some unexpected free time.

As we were making our way towards the main entrance, Himself suggested that we stop for a short lunch in the hospital’s  “Kannen and Kruiken Brasserie”. Lunch soon appears and we even treat ourselves to a wonderful chocolate cake dessert. The chef has incorporated fresh raspberries into the chocolate icing which has the effect of bringing a sharp contrast to the sugary sweetness of the chocolate icing with the result that we enjoyed every single bite and I have resolved to stop here for another sample of the same some time in the future. Of our main courses, Himself said that his was “so-so” but in the case of my fish, it was perfectly cooked and tasted wonderful. I hope that we have time to stop here again some time: Himself already knows that there will be no prizes for guessing what my next order is going to be.

In The Mood To Try Something Different…

Filed under: Cafe and Restaurant Reviews,FOOD,PHOTOGRAPHY,Scheveningen — kiwidutch @ 1:00 am
Tags: ,

The Simoni’s restaurant in Scheveningen  specialises in fish and seafood. We tend to go when we have guests, and special occasions.  The seafood platters are generally made to serve at least two people or more, and with me allergic to most of it, Himself can not eat one on his own. Sometimes too he is in the mood to try something completely different, so the friends we went with on this occasion went for mussels and lobster. I ordered garlic prawns, and for the very first time in all the years we have been coming here, we made it as far as the dessert section of the menu.  It’s not the last time we will be here, but each time is a delight, and we can not wait for a good excuse to come again.

They Become Their Own Masterpiece…

(photograph © Kiwidutch)

(photograph © Kiwidutch)

Simoni’s restaurant in  Scheveningen is well known near and far for it’s fish and seafood.

I’m very allergic to mollusks and squid, and am supposed to eat crustations in small quantities and not too often.

This basically means that all things with hinges like mussels, clams, oysters, squid and the like are a definite no-no, but the odd prawn every now and again is ok.

Technically lobster is also ok but I don’t have the heart to look at a cooked lobster on my plate that I knew was swimming happily in a tank half an hour earlier, and I also have a guilty secret: I don’t think that lobster tastes of much, I mean, one I had decades ago dripping with garlic butter was amazing but let’s be honest,  cardboard loaded with garlic butter would probably taste great too.

In short, lobster just doesn’t do it for me and since they are generally expensive I don’t see the point of paying a lot of money for something that you think tastes so-so.

Himself on the other hand has no reservations when it comes to lobster, his motto would be something like: ” bring ’em on, these taste brilliant”. What does excite me though, is the aesthetic quality of these beautiful creatures and also of other crustations, so seeing the seafood platters being made up, is like looking at a beautiful Still Life. The lamps in this section of the restaurant were red so of course everything under them was tinged a deep rosé. In front of the person building up the platters is a cooler cabinet where all of the cooked creatures were laid out for display and for selection. None of these would look out of place in a 17th Century Dutch old masterpiece,  and once plated up they each become their own masterpiece.

Irrhausen Hosts Us For A Lunchtime Break…

(photograph © Kiwidutch)

(photograph © Kiwidutch)

Heading back to the Hague at the end of our last summer’s holiday in Germany, we stopped in the small town of Irrhausen for lunch.

The restaurant that we find in the town is called “Im Pfenn” and it quickly becomes apparent that it is probably a very central part of the local community.

This chalet-style restaurant is large and airy, there is yet another version of the distinctive curvy looking bar at the end of the room, a very clear ‘relative” of the two wooden bars that we have seen earlier in this holiday.

After a late (relaxed and unhurried) start to our trip back and several stops already for fresh air to relieve symptoms of car sickness, we arrive well after the usual lunch time trade so pretty much have the place to ourselves.

We get drinks, fries and nacho chips and enjoy a quiet break to our journey.
