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!

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!

Guest Chef and Homemade Juicy Burger

Breadonbutter’s guest chef Jean Fares
Once again, Breadonbutter’s guest chef, Jean Fares, blossoms in the kitchen! This time, he made a juicy burger like I never ate before – and I can tell you, I have eaten my share of burgers – using an oven, not a grill. He was also glad to give me some tips on what makes the meat different and so juicy. So before you start, make sure you remember:
Tip number 1: When going to buy your meat, ask the butcher for a coarsely chopped meat with a meat/fat ratio of 80/20.
Tip number 2: When mixing in the ingredients with the meat, do not squeeze it too much
Tip number 3: Adding a bit of chili to the meat mixture helps increase the taste, without necessarily making it spicy
What you will need:
– Burger buns (of your choice) – soft ones are always a success
– Coarsely chopped meat
– Worcestershire sauce
– Chili flakes
– Mustard seeds, crushed
– Black pepper
– Salt
– Slices of Cheddar
– Onions – to add caramelized onions to it all
Make the caramelized onions:
Cut the onions into strips, put them on low fire in a pan with 3 tablespoons of olive oil and let them       cook until they look brown (see pictures below for the different cooking stages of caramelized         onions)

Make the meat mixture:

Add to the meat: 3 to 4 tablespoons of worcestershire sauce, 2 tablespoons of crushed mustard seeds,     1 tablespoon of chili flakes, salt and pepper and gently mix without pressing the meat too much until     they are all combined

With your hands, form the meat into balls and then press them gently to give them a round, not-so-flat form, place them on an oven pan, and then in the preheated oven
Prepare the base of the buns on another oven pan
Once the meat is cooked according to your likings (medium, rare or well-cooked) – don’t forget to keep checking your meat every 5 minutes – place it on each bun and cover them with a slice of cheddar cheese
Cook again in the oven for just a few minutes until the cheese has melted just enough
Add the toppings of your choice (below are the caramelized onions) and SAVOR!
