HOTSPOT 05: "De Lachende Koe"


A while ago, we went celebrating with
papa's day at a restaurant. It 
was his day so also his choice: a 
steakhouse 'De Lachende Koe' (literally means: 
The Smiling Cow) Luckily this place offers more
than just a beefy piece of meat. 

We only had the main-course and
dessert. And too be honest, the 
dessert was pretty much the highlight
of the entire feast. 

How did you celebrate this day!

 My present for papa was a home made cake: black sesame cake with mango. Will 
post a recipe in the next post! 

Amuse to start off.

My brother chose the steak with mushroom, my papa the grilled plaice-filet. Those
were the tiniest potatoes I've seen so far. 

And a chickenpie with crème fraîche for me. Not bad not bad! 

Fries in a funny and creative standard. I really enjoyed this!

I think the owner of this place really likes photography as well c:

Dame Blance, tiramisu, creme brulee, fruit & ice cream puff.

  21. I think it's quite adorable that there's a restaurant called 'The Smiling Cow', I've been to 'The Snail' and suprise, it served French food. Namely a lot of snail dishes haha. Wow, your cake looks so light and delicious *_* and the fact that it's homemade is the best present of all! I've gotta say, the interiors are so warm-toned with the lighting and timber furniture - I just think it adds to the experience of eating out haha. Those are the tiniest potatoes I've ever seen! Your chicken pie looks incredible, I hope it tasted just the same! Did you not have the urge to just fiddle around the cameras like a curious monkey? c: they're gorgeous models! I haven't had creme brulee in so long! Did yours have the perfect crisp top? I agree... J.Lo never aged. I'd have to say the same about Madonna, frightingly

  31. I have to agree that the desserts did seem like the highlight of the meal hahaha I'm not a huge fan of steak =S I don't believe we did anything too special for fathers day but because it's so close to my mums birthday I think we went out to eat and we bought my dad a nice wallet =)

  45. I like tiramisu but haven't eaten it in some time. When I was going up to Seattle a lot in the '90s was when I ate it at a rather expensive restaurant. I like the Jennifer Lopez song Goin' In but it just narrowly didn't get in my Pop 10 so far, still I like it.
