Respond to Review of De Waaghals
Review: My partner and I came here on a Tuesday evening for dinner without a reservation. It was obviously a very popular place as almost all the tables were reserved. Good thing we arrived early, they were able to squeeze us in. For food we ordered some olives and two coconut crepes to start with, a pesto minestrone and a Turkish stew for mains, and shared a panforte for dessert. Everything was tasty, not strong on flavors, but properly seasoned. Presentation was simple yet lovely. The highlight was definitely the panforte with pineapple sorbet - the only vegan dessert on the menu that day. The two made such good complements! Just one pet peeve though... I found the title of the "Turkish stew" kind of off. It wasn't a stew at all, but a thin layer of dal topped with some veggies and vegan meatballs served with brown rice, and I didn't understand what made this dish Turkish at all except it got three small pieces of meatballs in it. Yummy nontheless! Portions were moderate, setting was minimalist and cozy. I found this restaurant pretty good, while my partner absolutely loved it. Out of the several vegetarian restaurants we visited in Amsterdam it was for sure one of the better ones.
