Designer Eats – The Netherlands Part II: Termarsch & Co in Rotterdam

After Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen experience, Maria and her sister take us to one of the best burger places in Rotterdam.

termarsch & co | breadonbutter

 

Here is part two of Maria’s foodie journey through the Netherlands and it takes place at Termarsch & Co., Rotterdam.

After a long visit to museums, we were starving. While walking in the Witt de Withstraat neighborhood in Rotterdam, we randomly stopped at a Burger Place that grabbed our attention. The street, usually much busier and artsy, was more or less calm on an early Tuesday afternoon.

The place looked cool from the outside, and since I am a huge burger lover, I could not convince myself of not going in to try a burger in a country famous for its international cuisine!

Once in, the freezer above the mezzanine grabbed my attention. I guess this is where they store meat! It was actually cool, I’d definitely save this idea!

We got the menu which was fully in dutch so the waiter told us about each burger, giving an additional tip regarding the burger I chose, the Lady Burger: It won the 2015 Best Burger Prize in the Netherlands. Its description in the menu read:

Scottish Angus Beef en Japans Wagyu, met lakjus van wintertruffel, jonge sla, augurk, pruimtomaat, Spaanse ui, boerenkaas en Ter Marsch saus. 

Translation: Scottish Angus Beef and Japanese Wagyu, with lakjus winter truffle, young lettuce, pickles, plum tomato, red onion, farm and Ter Marsch sauce.

How could I not try it?

I did, and boy do I really not regret it! As soon as I held it in my hands, the juice came out. It was really delicious and one of the best burgers I’ve ever had, so were the fries and the homemade mayo with curry!

termarsch & co | breadonbutter

I highly recommend it. If you have the chance to visit Rotterdam, make sure you stop by Termarsch & Co.

And if you’re not, what are you waiting for to plan your 2015 summer vacation? 😀

Anyone else craving a burger right now?! Thank you again Maria! 😉 


About Maria

As a conceptual designer and thinker, I always strive to develop ideas based on an original and unconventional approach.With a professional training in Product Design and Interior & Living Design, 
my practice has evolved throughout the past years by focusing on products, spaces and user experience design. This led me to develop a passion for interactive media and communication strategies, often influencing my teaching at the Lebanese American University.

When I found myself alone in Italy, I had to cook to survive and that’s how my love for cooking was born! 🙂

I perceive cooking as a meditation tool, but find satisfaction only after sharing the tasting experience with friends! Yes, my food is yummy and you should try it!

I like to explore cooking with colors, textures, forms and emotions, I mix them up intuitively so it’s always hard to write an accurate recipe with exact quantities! What matters though is the look (for dreaming)… then the taste (for feeling)!

Happy eating!

Designer Eats – The Netherlands Part I: Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen in Amsterdam

The thing is, I not only enjoy writing about what I do and what I cook, but I also love it when people I find very special write about what they cook and experience. One of the long-term goals of this blog is to make it a community where great people from different backgrounds share their cooking, travel, and lifestyle. So imagine the smile on my face when I got an email from Maria, our designer cook here on breadonbutter, telling me about her experience in two restaurants she visited in the Netherlands. She tells the story like any foodie would: with passion.

Here is part one of her experience with restaurants during her trip, and it takes place at Fifteen. I won’t say more and leave the floor to Maria.

fifteen | breadonbutter

During my trip to the Netherlands last March, one of the main activities was to try a couple of restaurants!

One of them was the Fifteen restaurant founded by the famous Chef Jamie Oliver! If you’ve never heard of him, that’s his website: www.jamieoliver.com/

It took my sister and I a while to reach the place since it is not located in Central Amsterdam, but a few stops away from the Central Station, in a calm and new residential neighborhood. It was windy and dark, with just a few people walking through. But after quite some efforts we reached our destination, very discreet I must say!

fifteen | breadonbutter

As we entered the place, we were greeted by friendly staff who took off our coats and seated us. We had a nice view on the kitchen, as well as on the Red ‘Fifteen’ graffiti that covers a long wall and the bar. It is a big restaurant, beautifully designed to make the customer rapidly feel at ease.

We got the menu along with delicious and crispy, yet soft bread and almost melting butter (Lynn, this is for you, I literally had butter with bread) and the waiter informed us about the options we had to chose from. There was a formula that consisted of 3, 4 or 5 dishes or we could freely select dishes à la carte from the Evening Menu.

We tried to guess why the restaurant’s name is Fifteen and concluded that it highlights the 15 items on the menu. Yes, we counted them!

Here are a couple of pictures I took with my phone. The plates looked better in reality, of course, they were actually very well-designed and the temperature was just right!

Overall, it was a nice experience. The service was slightly slow when it came to the main dish I must say and my only regret is that I did not manage to have any dessert as I was so full! I added it to my list for next time!

What we had from the menu:

Roasted and marinated vegetables / Dutch cheeses / cured meats

Kataifi

Caramelized salsify / truffle / ‘messenklever’ / cauliflower in ‘beurre noisette’

Rose baked round of beef

The kataifi looks so tempting. Thanks Maria! 🙂

Has anyone been to one of Jamie Oliver’s restaurants?
