On August 8th 2015, we made a little detour to the northern part of Amsterdam. We drove around on our bikes when we accidently ran into the Rolling Rock Kitchen. Actually, we were heading to a festival at De Ceuvel, but it was far too busy over there. So, we looked for another place. This is how we discovered Rolling Rock Kitchen. We impulsively decided to stop by to have some drinks and food.
This cute little place is situated next to the IJ river and has a stunning wide spread view over the water! Beach chairs and picknick tables are spread out over the big terrace and there is a lot of space to have a private chat. Children are also taken into account, because this hotspot has a play area for the youngsters. We seated ourselves in the beach chairs and took a look at the menu.
We were very atrracted to the menu because some delicious dishes priced under 10 euro’s were on it. And this an exception in Amsterdam! We both chose the Wrap with curry stew and honey on top. Unfortunately, it took quite a while till our dish was served, whereas it was pretty quiet at that moment. Besides that, we got one wrap in stead of two and our waiter didn’t even notice this mistake. It was pretty clear the staff didn’t communicate smoothly. This is most likely because Rolling Rock Kitchen is the initial stage. After all, they apologized, served as the other wrap and offered us free drinks. And let’s not forget about the food itself! OMG, the chicken stew was just heavenly! It was very tastefull with a good add of spices. We could have eaten lots more of them.
The service definitely needs improvement, but still, the Rolling Rock Kitchen is a very nice place hang out!
Price/ Quality: 10/10
