Karin Engelbrecht

After writing about all things food and lifestyle in Amsterdam for over a decade, a typical day in Karin’s life might involve attending a boutique launch, followed by a cocktail-menu tasting and dinner at a hot new restaurant. No surprise then, that this born-and-raised South African, who’s called Amsterdam home since 1996, has the scoop on all the latest openings. She’s recently teamed up with journalist and broadcaster Lauren Comiteau to create the Mokumista podcast covering Amsterdam’s best restaurants, bars and hidden gems. You can listen to the latest episode here. Follow Karin on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter @mokumista
