Now and again (or every weekend) you see the dawn of day after a night partying with your friends, eating and drinking cocktails. Whenever that happens, I got the perfect spot to kill your hangover: Restaurant NoordWest! Ok, so they also have lunch and dinner. But I always come here for breakfast (and not the healthy kind).
Location, Location, Location
NoordWest is situated on the Noordermarkt in Amsterdam where on Saturdays you’ll find an organic market and on Mondays a clothing market. It’s always very busy on these days. Especially at the neighbours’s place Winkel43 (same owner) that sells the best apple pie ever. Unfortunately you cannot order this at NoordWest (believe me, I tried ;)).
The Hangover Killer
After taking a seat at preferably one of the two tables outside (ok, they also have a large terrace in summer but I prefer the one that’s a bit higher because then I have a good view over the market and can do my favorite thing while sitting and eating: Watch people). Ok, where were we? After taking a seat, I order fresh OJ, a cappuccino and.. A Croque Madame! We don’t even take a look at the menu. This sucker is made with ham, cheese and a sunny side up on top of it. It’s greasy, it’s a lot and has eggs. Or actually one egg. It’s enough for me and just the perfect dish to kill my hangover. Or feel slightly better..
So I just found out that this is a lunch meal at NoordWest. With what do you kill your hangover? Maybe I can make a 10 Best out of it.
