My dear friend Bianca lives in Amsterdam and we like spending time together, talking and eating. Yes, she definately likes food, just like me, yay! We’ve been testing hotspots in Amsterdam for some time now, but we both had not been to Beter & Leuk yet. Online I already saw many reviews about this hotspot so these 2 real foodies (ahum…) decided to check it out for themselves.
Beter & Leuk is owned by to girls, Ilse and Maja. This lovely place is a real conceptstore: a combination of (healthy) food and clothes and more. It’s a bit of a trend lately. A trend we definately like! We love the interior at Beter & Leuk: it’s a cosy place, not too big with just enough room for 20 to 25 people. We like small places… Even better: their menu is vegetarian and vegan only! So everything on the menu was an option for me: that doesn’t happen often. We like!
Bianca had her eyes set on the Korean rice bowl with tempeh: yummy, most definately a dish with great flavours! I ordered the veggie sandwich with roasted veggies: it tasted ok, loved the side salad and the bread. But, expected a little bit more veggies than just 2 tiny carrot slices and 2 tiny bits of beet.
I forgot to take pictures of the yummy drinks, sorry! We both ordered a drink with ginger: a delicious apple carrot ginger juice and a hot appel juice with ginger en cinnamon. Yummy, we loved the drinks, a bit spicy, probably because of the ginger. Like!
Our conclusion: we really like Beter & Leuk. They serve healthy and tasty food (a tiny bit too pricy considering the small portion sizes). It’s a great place for vegetarians and vegans of course, considering the menu. But please omonivores: give it a go too and be surprised about how yummy the food is.
Beter & Leuk say on their website: “Organic, creative, homey and most of all good food. That’s Beter & Leuk. The place to go for breakfast, lunch, lifestyle items to buy, inspiration and workshops”.
