Amsterdam through British eyes

Brunch at Bar Bukowski in Amsterdam

0

Brunch is the reserve of many expats here in Amsterdam, and so when I heard about Bar Bukowski opening (some time ago now), I knew it was somewhere that I wanted to try for brunch. Following a hard yoga session outside the Rijksmuseum, three of us went to sample exactly what Bar Bukowski had to offer.

On entering, I loved the atmosphere, and looking around I decided that I also liked the space. We found a seat, and started looking at the menu. It’s pretty reasonably priced, so you won’t break the bank. A lot of the food was around EUR7, and my mint tea cost EUR 2.50.

We all went for poached eggs, since I don’t think any of us had eaten breakfast before our exercise. We had one eggs benedict, one eggs atlantic and one eggs florentine with a side of avocado. Service was a little slow, which wasn’t helped by the fact that we were all really hungry.

When it came, it was delicious. I practically inhaled mine because I was so hungry. I was originally torn between choosing eggs benedict or one of their vlammekuchen (which is really delicious if you’ve never tried it  – like pizza, but with craime fraiche), but I was actually glad that I chose eggs in the end.

I think Bar Bukowski would be a great space to have an event (especially in the evening), because the bar has a cosy feeling, the space is nice, the artwork on the walls is really fun, and the prices are good.
