Diners at Breda on Amsterdam's Singel canal have to be in an adventurous mood: their Burgundian cuisine with international polish is served as a surprise menu, where the only thing visitors have a say in is the size of their plate.
Surprise dining in Amsterdam
The restaurateurs behind Daalder and Guts & Glory
sure like a concept: at their new venture Breda, named after their hometown in the south of the Netherlands – home to a hearty cuisine – diners choose between the three options of 'Basic', 'Extra' and 'The Full Monty' (the latter subtitled 'All we've got', so make sure you've come hungry). Vegetarians should take note that there is no fully vegetarian option. Breda's interior straddles grand canal house and rustic charme and somehow manages to make this combination work splendidly, while wine experts will appreciate the fact that the wine list too has an 'Extra' section – and yes, it very much goes the Full Monty.
