A delight for the palate

5 Posted on 06 / 23 / 2009

I dined at De Kop van't Land recently for the Monday night tasting menu (30euros per person) and was amazed with every course. The risotto with mushroom tempura, the pasta shell filled with ricotta, herbs in a delicious broth, mango salad with cream, roasted cauliflower soup and strawberry smoothie were all delicious and I left very satisfied. This is easily one of the best, if not the very best restaurant I have had the pleasure to dine in (vegetarian or otherwise). The atmosphere is very nice. It's rare to find a fully vegetarian restaurant that has an upscale, modernist-look. Don't be afraid to dress up although I'm sure there's no dress code. We sat inside but the patio looked very welcoming. If you are in the Netherlands, this place is worth the trip. Very impressive stuff.

Pros: Delicious food, Friendly, knowledgable staff, Great atmosphere
Cons: 30euros is steep but worth it

The best dining in Nederland

5 Posted on 09 / 19 / 2008

In my experience, Kop van 't Land is the best restaurant - vegetarian or otherwise - in the Netherlands. I've eaten there four times in the last year and they offer up mouth-watering new delicacies each time.

My favourite time to go is Monday night when they serve a tasting menu (proeverij) of ten or so small, beautifully presented courses for 30 EUR p.p. Highlights of previous visits include: yellow beet 'caviar'; fresh gazpacho; asparagus with Parmesan curls, creme-fraiche and herbs; portobello pate on toast with a 'shot' of sesame bouillon; hot and spicy coconut curry with mango rice; a warm wrap of red pepper and eggplant, with avocado cream; nut bread with warm chevre, sliced pear and balsamic reduction; Moroccan dessert pastry with apples, raisins and lemon sorbet.

Even my carnivorous boyfriend, who frequently complains that vegetarian restaurants serve bland, artless food, loves this restaurant as much as I do.

A tip: Consider going by car, or staying overnight in the hotel, or calling a taxi when leaving the restaurant because the city bus connecting Dordrecht Centraal and Kop van 't Land (about a 12 min. ride) stops running very early in the evening it seems. You could probably get there by bus but wouldn't be able to leave till the next morning. (For public transport details: www.9292ov.nl)

Pros: Delicious food, Artful presentation, Amazing tasting menu
Cons: Nothing, I love this place
